Central park is so small. sad.gif

Think about it, would you rather it be equivalent in size to the real central park with a lot
dead space? Or a reasonable size park with lots of stuff to see and do, with have more city space?

that "lake" takes up too much space and its disproportional to the park.

The real Central Park is HUGE, and Liberty City is a fraction of the size of New York City. I estimate Middle Park is only 6% the area of Central Park.

However it's pretty big as GTA areas go. If you look back a few pages, check out my comparison showing Middle Park is as wide as the Sherman Dam in San Andreas. Middle Park is also comparable in size to Area 69 OR the Las Venturas Airport. Middle Park is about 10 times the size of Glen Park in Los Santos. (All of this assumes my estimate of Liberty City's size is correct.)

The lakes in the real Central Park are pretty big. The Jackie O. reservoir is almost as wide as the park.

looks like they say LAST ISLAND instead of long island but could be any four letter word with AS in the middle.
fast island
vast island
mast island
past island.......

It would be funny if it's Last Island and also the last part of the map that gets unlocked. smile.gif

I think it might be East Island. Way to find the real life version of it.

They look indeed like the buildings from Queens.
Seen them a lot of times while landing at JFK, they're right at the ocean.

I believe I took a video of them a while ago... maybe I can find it...


EDIT: I think they look a little like those (Pic I took shortly before landing at JFK)

I think you're right. Two posts down form the post I'm quoting, you can see a better image. It's either LAST or EAST and EAST makes more geographic sense... LAST: more comical.

No I think that my be the recreation of the destoryed el train tracks on the west side of manhanttan. It's called the High Line. [/QUOTE]
Thats certainly It. I was looking for the picture till I found your post.

That place is awsome, Though I haven't been there in some time...

What it was is a huge el line that was shut down, and just sits there...It's all over grown and quite beautiful.
Whats funny is, some people whose apartment's windows are along the tracks use it like a backyard. At some points
there is essentially a patio set up with chairs and potted plants...its awsome.

I hope rockstar payed attention to this and it's how it is in life, but I can tell from that shot that they didnt...

The screen shot you see is a platform, there are 3 like it along the line and at first, they were to be used for on and off loading of cargo and such, and in later years they were used as stations. At one point the line just stops at a wall. They bricked it up and thats where it stops...

Now they are trying to "preserve it" and turn it into a nature park type thing...which is awsome but I'd rather have it abandoned. And our retarded government is tying to posses it, for who knows what...

I'll try and find a better picture, but this is basically what your looking at in the screen shot>

And maybe you can try and make one with all the streets, trains, subways, important buildings and locations, people, hoods, policestations, street names etc. OMG that would be awesome

pretty sure it was said at some point that the island that is made up of dukes and broker would be called east island. In real life i guess you could say brooklyn and queens are on the western edge of long island... though when people say "long island" they're usually talking about the area east of queens.

Where did it say that? I can't recall reading something about that. Although "East Island" does make more sense than "Last Island", since Broker and Dukes are the easternmost boroughs in the city.

Man, seeing some of these areas and real life buildings just makes me think of how much this game is going to bring back memories of being a wee little tyke growing up in Queens.

"Gantry Plaza State Park, since 1998, has opened up the Queens waterfront in Long Island City. Its award-winning design has transformed former industrial space into a flourishing public park with tremendous views of Manhattan."

That's the main reason why I want this game though, because it actually looks and feels like the city.
