| 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...
I'm pretty upset about this as well, not nessesarily because of their proximity between the Bridge and Coney Island(I honestly don't feel the need to get stuck on the BQE for 30 minutes in the game), but because it feels like they've cut so much out.
For those who don't know, the Brooklyn Bridge area is the northernmost part of Brooklyn, and Coney Island/Brighton Beach is the southernmost point. Now seeing those two areas beside each other makes me question the overall size of the borough of Broker, since so much has been cut out.
Also, whatever happened to BOABO? This neighborhood was confirmed very early on, yet other than the first trailer where we first see Niko's face, we've had no images of this area at all. I think that's kind of weird.
