If you look at the map of the GTA 3 LC below:
You can see that there is a mass of land on the left above Shoreside Vale that appears to be part of a bigger piece of land. What if that piece of land was Alderney and Staunton Island and Portland Island were situated south east of happiness Island around about where the real life Staten Island is situated relative to Liberty Island in New York.
And the reason that they don't appear in GTA IV is that they were blown up or sank or something. Or maybe it was just ommitted the same way Alderney is the only Part of Guernsey that is accessible.
I know it's a crazy and somewhat stupid Idea but it would be cool if it were true because not only would it give us a GTA version of Staten Island but it would also link both the GTA 3 and GTA IV eras together.
