You're missing Broadway, which is the obvious street that can be seen in a New York City map. And since we saw times square in the first trailer it's going to be there.

As you can see I have marked the chimney and the two almost identical highrises with A and B

Now look here. I have marked what I think is the chimney and two highrises in the far distance:

#1 in this screenshot is definitely one of the cranes seen in this shot - the only problem is I'm not sure which one it is. I think it's probably the one furthest north...

Continuing on from this...

Are sunsets really that orange in New York City? It looks a little intense and I'm hoping against something like San Andreas's sunsets. I just hope the sunsets are more calm like in III.

I think you can expect very realistic sunsets , i hope they will put a couple of different sunsets in the game for some variation.
For me, the sunset in the picture looks very decent.

Click this link, it will led you to a picture of a very nice orange sunset, and yes, it truly is in NY!

This aint ment to sound rude lol, but does anyone think the map will be this big? With all the different heights and interiors I'd be suprised if it was like that.


And omgwtfbbq1234, I think that probably is the whole thickness of Manhattan...

I just got a vision of the map being sligthly 3D and not pure 2D as previous games.

A more "living" map with animated symbols etc.

Great job guys icon14.gif

Although its exciting that you guys found that hove beach/carney island is down the beach from the broker bridge......its still hard for New Yorkers like me (if you know what i mean)

In real life getting to coney island from the brooklyn bridge takes 30 minutes

Rockstar has REALLY scaled down New York to a san andreas size
It's going to feel weird that going down the street from the broker bridge will take 2 minutes to reach the southern tip but i guess its going to take years and years until somebody can make a perfect, street to street recreation of the whole NEW YORK CITY area...

Keep up the work guys icon14.gif

I guess everybody agrees that Hove Beach is probably the representation of Brighton Beach.
(For those who might not know, Brighton Beach is the home of the Russian "Mafia" in America)
Here's a link to the Brighton Neighborhood Association, which has a lot of info and pictures and stuff maybe it'll be helpful or at least informative.
http://www.brightonbeach.com/
Here's one of the things they say:
"Today Brighton Beach Avenue, the main commercial strip, is bustling. We have numerous Russian Nightclubs and restaurants which could Rival Manhattan Clubs of the 1930s. Long-legged statuesque dances framed in huge colorful feathers ascend onto the stage to enchant. The shows also feature top Russian singers, specialty acts, mimes etc. Brooklyn gave birth to some of the World's top performers and today we see a rebirth of new talent right here in Brighton Beach. Chain stores are now inverting in this "old world" community. Joining the new Russian Americans are immigrants from the Middle East and Asia. Walking through Brighton Beach is much like viewing a kaleidoscope which is ever changing, yet ever exciting."
That sounds like something Rockstar would write in the "Tourist Guide" instruction manual.

Of course. How come I never spotted that? You mean Brighton and Hove Albion? As in the football team? I'm assuming there is also a town called "Hove".

Not really, as it looks like it's not going to be an exact replica of New York.

Screampoint has a really good start.

R* said they scaled it down to match the game and keep it fun. New York is f*cking huge. It's not bad playing Spiderman when you're swinging 200 mph, but even then it gets pretty old pretty fast.
