Shot 1
Shot 2
Shot 3
Shot 4

Only slight flaw is in shot 1 theres some bridge or something going over Nikos head, not sure what it is, elevated track maybe?

PS. there is a road under the train track.

It's been about 6 months since any major update, but I expect there will be more soon.
The maps here are really impressive, considering what they have been given to work with.

I took the liberty to update the broker map with some info I got from trailer 3.

It seems that the known area's in broker are closer together than original thought.
I've moved the lower part of the map up, according to the evidence in the annotated screens below.
[*IMG]http://img153.imageshack.us/img153/9475/brokermapnewfi5.png[/IMG*]

I Assigned a couple of new numbers:


  • 65: Building with the red letters : " Little ....."
  • 66: Building with blue sign with two white circles
  • 67: LCPD Broker
  • 69: "SHOE WORLD" ?

Nice one. We should be able to fill in some of that white space, based on what is revealed in this shot: http://media.gtanet....3757_gta_iv.jpg

The screamer goes all the way back to the basketball court. in the picture of the bball court, you can see part of the screamer in the back.

number 66 is a shop selling Chndeliers, believe me, this is what it says. Two circles is the chandelier.

That seems feasible, there must be a small bridge/walkway in the empty space that Niko walks under in trailer 2.

Do you not think the building at the back in this picture could be the bulding on Niko's right in this shot?

Also, the building on the right in the distance (tall building) in this shot could also be the one Niko walks by.

Its a shot in the dark really.

yea i have been loking at some shots that could be tied in to those yellowish buildings but they are projects and there are clones of them over NY so its probably the same with this so its too difficult to be sure if they are these other buildings that i have in mind unless i can see the cyclone near them...

If you cannot read the yellow text it says 'Distance from Chrysler to trump tower is accurate to in game screenshot'. which it is.

Found the lighthouse, which is seen in trailer III, here : http://pnmedia.games...creens/3/22.jpg

It's the North End Lighthouse, located at the Roosevelt Isl.
Check the real-life photo here :

Number 8 in the building list, is probadly Broadway 1460 : http://www.swigco.co...60-broadway.jpg
Home of a swigco company building...
In this screenshot : http://img.photobuck...arenumbered.jpg
You can see bout 11 flours ; actual building is 17 floors...

It maybe isn't a very great simular building but i think it also not a very important building , so rock* just put some building there with no great details on it.
I have looked up the position of this building on google earth and i think this is the right building.
For the ones who likes coordinates:

4045'18.74"N
7359'10.61"W

I don't see them doing that unfortunately.
They are keeping everything as tight as they can.

As for this thread, great job guys! I wish I was smarter like that but I have
the coordination of a drunk fish on land.
