Liberty City is a fictional city and frequent location in the Grand Theft Auto series of video games, developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games. It is most likely a parody of New York City.
The first appearance of Liberty City was in Grand Theft Auto, and was one of the three cities available, the others being Vice City and San Andreas. In 2001, Grand Theft Auto III was released, and once again featured Liberty City, this time with a different design. The city was divided in three boroughs (Portland, Stauton Island and Shoreside Vale). This rendition of Liberty City was also featured in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. Grand Theft Auto IV, a reboot in the series, was located in a new version of Liberty City, which was much closer and faithful to real-life New York. GTA IV's Liberty City parodies all the boroughs of New York (except for Staten Island), and also features satires of prominent real-life landmarks, such as the Statue of Liberty. It also features a parody of Jersey City, Alderney City.
