This was studied a lot as a way to compare map sizes between GTA games. Rockstar doesn't base the lane width on real life but on gameplay needs, such as not making streets too difficult for AI traffic.
GTA3 through San Andreas have a lane width of 5m on most streets. This is not enough width for cars to park by the curb without AI traffic getting jammed, so in GTAIV the lane width was increased to 6m. You can still find some 5m lanes such as on the Broker Bridge where you'll note there isn't room to park.

I don't know about NYC but in the UK and Ireland the roads are wide enough for two cars to allow for overtaking. I would imagine the roads in Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx would be the same and they'd no doubt be the same in Jersey with all those SUVs they drive over there.

Test Drive Unlimited had a 5 lane (each way) motorway, so more than 2 lanes is possible, probably more lanes would make it harder for the LCPD to set up roadblocks.
There is a bit of 'hard shoulder' you can use on the Algonquin - Dukes Expressway, so it you need to escape the LCPD, you can use that as a 3rd lane.
