2. About Me: [AE01]
I have been a GTA veteran since 1999 and have completed every GTA 
game to date. I have mastered and literally seen everything possible 
in GTA San Andreas clocking in hundreds of hours, still even. I also 
own a gaming site '' which is again for GTA San 

3. Introduction: [IN01]
If you have followed the GTA franchise you would know Liberty City is 
a city based on New York that first made an appearance back in 1997 
in GTA1 and inimitably founded the renown GTA3 trilogy back in 2001 
with GTA3 on the Playstation 2.  
Now 3 years have passed since then and the ultimate interval for the 
trilogy has been unconfined and in our beloved console systems once 
and for all, not just with a new sandbox called San Andreas, but 
Liberty City too, and this guide shall pertain relevant information 
regarding the Liberty City confined within the game Grand Theft Auto: 
San Andreas.

4. About SALC (San Andreas' Liberty City): [AC01]
Firstly, not all of Liberty City is in the game, majority of Portland 
is the claimable Liberty City. It is still a comparatively large area 
considering such a small part of it was used in only one mission in 
which most of the time you were within an interior that was enclosed 
by brick walls. But many say the outer limits were used for "The 
Introduction" which was a 21 Minute short feature film that contained 
several scenes within Liberty City. The only comparative differences 
you could note is the fact snow has now inhabited the City.

You first voyage to Liberty City in the mission "Saint Mark's 
Bistro". You take a Lear Jet (Shamal) from Las Venturas Airport and 
travel east for a few minutes and appear in the snowing Liberty City 
in order to do a hit on a Forelli family member.

5. Where is Liberty City? [W?C01]
Theoretically, Liberty City is situated miles and miles straight east 
from San Andreas, but where it is truly positioned within the game is 
in the upper left (North West) of Los Santos stationed much higher 
than the prearranged flying limit in "Hell".

6. Exploration Methods: [ES01]
So, you want to tour the early 90's version of Liberty City? Well we 
have approvingly designed 4 appropriate methods of transportation 
each accustom to your available divergence. Choose one which suites 
you best and follow the procedures carefully.

Here is a map locating areas vital to travel back to Liberty City: 
a. Method 1: Hellway
Difficulty: 6/10 
Cheat Device Needed? Yes 
This is perhaps one of the more difficult and longest routes to take, 
but with this method you have admission to Liberty City all the time, 
so in order for you to travel back after completing the game, Hellway 
is the only alternative.

First off enable the "Unlimited Height on Jetpack" code and enter the 
Ganton Gym and spawn a Jetpack inside and launch yourself up above 
the gym door and travel to the Warehouse in Black hell and land on 
the reflective ground and walk to the blip and enter. Once you are 
inside mark Liberty City on the map, preferably the small solid area 
and travel from the Warehouse interior hell to there. Congratulations 
you have now taken the Hellway, have fun exploring a good 70% portion 
of Portland.


b. Method 2: Taking MJ 
Difficulty: 3/10 
Cheat Device Needed? No 
If you don't have access to a Cheat Enhancer this is for you. This is 
a ridiculously easy method to explore Liberty City, but sadly only by 
foot. You are also limited to only the solid parts of the city, so 
get your camera packed and start touring!

In order to do this ridiculously easy method you will need to start 
the "Saint Mark's Bistro" mission. When you are up to the point 
needing to kill the Forelli member outside don't kill him, run down 
the steps and go into the small enclosed area behind the open wall on 
the back right of the yard and go to the left edge behind the tree 
and stand on the snow mound facing north on the light grey brick 
wall. Now activate the 'Mega Jump" cheat and jump over the wall. You 
will now be in an emaciated alleyway covered by snow. Now follow it 
turning right then right again until you are at yet another dead end 
and stop, these walls are not solid. Now face east on the left wall 
near the end of that alley and have a small run up and jump as you 
hit the wall. If successful you will land out on the road of the 
Bistro, to make it easier to know where to land do the "See through 
Walls" trick. Have fun walking around observing the city by foot, 
watch out for the unsolid areas and use the 'Spark Trick".


c. Method 3: Grenade Launching  
Difficulty: 8/10 
Cheat Device Needed? No 
Another method for those without Cheat Enhancers. This is a very 
difficult method and involves plenty luck and ample patience. You 
launch yourself over a wall by a ricocheting grenade. Sound easy 
enough for you? 

This method involves you to be in the "Saint Mark's Bistro" mission. 
Kill everyone besides the Forelli member outside and push the car 
away from him as he will try shooting you whilst the car is in the 
way and blow himself up therefore you will pass the mission, which 
isn't what you want to do. Now go to the back of the small enclosed 
area on your right as mentioned in "Method 2" and go to the highest 
snow mound facing North West between the light grey brick wall and 
the other wall. Now throw a grenade to the wall and jump to coincide 
with the explosion and you should be on the walls ledge. If you 
failed your first attempt you will definitely need to use a health 
cheat of some kind, and you are advised to bring some body armour too 
if you wish to not use cheats. Now do the same and get into the Alley 
as mentioned in "Method 2" and activate the Mega Jump cheat and 
follow the procedure as mentioned in 'Method 2". Remember the "Spark 
Trick" is your moral lead in exploring on foot.


d. Method 4: Jetmaxin'
Difficulty: 0/10 
Cheat Device Needed? Yes 
This is the easiest method of them all but involves the use of a 
Cheat Enhancer. 

Again, this method involves you to be in the "Saint Mark's Bistro" 
mission, but first enable the Low Gravity (Unlimited Height on 
Jetpack) code. When you are in Liberty City go out of the Bistro and 
into the courtyard where the Forelli member is and spawn a Jetpack, 
now just fly off and explore ALL of Liberty City. Easy!

7. Safe Travel Tips: [SS01]
This section will contain core tricks and tips for when exploring 
Liberty City. If you have heard an odd trick in one of the methods, 
they will sure be listed in this section.
Spark Trick:
Shooting a solid object with any gun will ignite a spark, if however 
no spark entails the object is not solid, there for you will go/fall 
through it. Use this for assistance when exploring Liberty City by 
See Through Walls:
Equip the Heat Seeking Rocket Launcher and go up close to the 
wall/object you wish to look through and aim with R1 then turn 180 
degrees and let go. Now repeat 180 degrees back to the object you 
were facing previously and you should effectively be looking through 

Pack a Camera:
It's always good to pack a camera with you for PROOF. Taking 
snapshots around the place will archive your journey and could be 
viewed when back home in San Andreas. Harp on to your friends!

8. Tourist Attractions: [TS01]
This section is more a "Things to see" section which will entail 
several things you can see in Liberty City. 
Bistro Exterior:
If you walk up the steps of the Bistro and look at the windows, you 
can look through inside of the Bistro Kitchen and hear opera music. 

Portland Hospital:
Go to the same location of the hospital north east of Liberty City in 
GTA3 to see it looks the exact same. Not solid though. 
Hyman Stadium in Liberty City:
Near Liberty City the Hyman Memorial Stadium from Vice City is 
floating around. When you are near you should hear some stadium 
music. It is the same arena model for Dirtring and Bloodring in Vice 
City. In the centre there is a ramp square, which is the only solid

10. Frequently Asked Questions: [FQ01]

Can you Spawn vehicles in Liberty City?
No, it will spawn, but far down underneath Liberty City. 
Where can I get a Cheat Enhancer?
Depends, there are several types of Cheat Enhancers; Gameshark, 
Action Replay. Exploder etc. and each entail different versions and 
conversions for each code. They can be purchased at numerous gaming 
outlets and online retailers. 
Where can I get the latest codes?
If you have an Action Replay, locate your version on and look for the desired code. Another good site 
which is a group of people translating unofficial codes for AR and 
all is   
What happens if I fall through the ground in Liberty City?
You will fall for ages and ages and soon land, dependant though. Some 
people have landed in unburden water while some have landed at the 
Doherty Garage with the open garage to enter, not all the textures 
have loaded, so it will look very odd. To fix this partially enter an 
What is "Hell"?
There are several types of hell, and it's not unerringly hell either. 
It first got its forename back in GTA3 with "Blue Hell" that could be 
seen through walls or in glitched areas. It is really places which 
you aren't suppose to go to and in which visuals and objects aren't 
laden and files have been places around, like interiors. Hard to 
Your map isn't precisely accurate!
Yes, I know. But at least it approximately locates the places, only 
the Gym is off register a little bit. So no more irritable questions 
about this, why not you make me a map then, huh.
