Character and points of interest

City Hall is the government seat of Liberty City and, as such, is a center of political activity in the city. The neighborhood serves as the civic center of not only Algonquin, but the entirety of Liberty City. The neighborhood is primarily commercial and governmental in nature, but a few residential sectors exist along its eastern face, while the centerpiece of the district is a delta-shaped park bordered by Liberty Lane, Emerald Street, and Denver Avenue.

City Hall's most prominent landmarks includes a low-rise town hall at the northern edge of the park, and a towering municipal complex to the east, which is distinguished by its street level central arch and cylindrical crown. Both buildings are presumed to house the city's administrative organizations.

The Civic Citadel, located on Liberty Lane between Diamond and Calcium Streets, is a major tourist attraction, as well as a shopping destination with many stores present in its ground concourse.

Influences

City Hall is a very detailed, accurate imitation of Civic Center, Manhattan. Landmarks duplicated in the district include New York City Hall, the Manhattan Municipal Building (located across Denver Avenue from the park), the Civic Citadel (Woolworth Building) looming the background, and the delta-shaped New York City Hall Park, which imitation forms the heart of the district.

Transportation

The Liberty City Subway system serves the neighborhood. The City Hall station, located at the intersection of Denver Avenue, Liberty Lane, and Calcium Street is served at all times by the K/C Algonquin Inner Line. A second station, Feldpsar is located in the northwest corner of the neighborhood on Union Drive West, between Frankfort Avenue and Emerald Street. Feldspar is served at all times by the A/J Algonquin Outer Line.

Prominent role in mission

Main article: Entourage

City Hall is featured in the mission "Entourage" in GTA IV, where Gravelli asks Niko to stay in convoy with a bunch of City Hall cars to take the government member Bobby Jefferson to a meeting at the city hall building where he gives a speech against gang problems in the city. The convoy is ambushed by a group of Russians, and Niko has to protect Bobby.

Trivia

In the GTA III—GTA Vice City Stories rendition of Liberty City, a building similarly based on the New York City Hall building exists on the northern edge of Belleville Park in Staunton Island (the equivalent to Manhattan in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories).
