Well, here's the locations of all the Unique Jumps in GTA3... and that's it. 
No story.  No hints.  No tips.  No cheats.  No walkthrough.

Just the jumps.  :)


*PORTLAND*

1) On the Callahan Bridge, going from Staunton to Portland, drive in the center
going east until you hit the yellow and black 'ramp'.  I'm not positive, but I
believe you have to land in the grass below without hitting the sides of the
bridge for it to count.

2) Under the Callahan bridge in Portland; it's a grassy hill in the center.
This one took a while to earn because it's very difficult to get up enough
speed to clear both horizontal girders - otherwise it doesn't count.  Hit this
one going EAST.

3) Near the center of town, by a subway entrance, there's a ramp that allows
you to jump up onto the L tracks.  To get there from the Callahan bridge:  head
north, then take a left at the Punk Noodles resturant. Take the next right, and
head north - you'll run right into the jump.  Land on the tracks for credit.

4) From the Callahan bridge, head east and take the first right(south). Keep
going south until you get to the ocean.  Look to your left to see a gravel
pile, which is the Unique Jump.  When you hit the jump, don't "cheat" it and
land on the ledge to the left - it won't count.  Hit it straight, fly over the
water, and land on the dock on the other side.  There's plenty of path leading
up to the jump, so getting up enough speed should be easy in a fast car.

5) Same area as the previous jump - as you head south, as you approach the
ocean, follow the road as it curves east.  When you get to the next curve, look
right - there's a ramp set up against the wall near some construction cones. 
In order for this one to register you only have to clear the first building,
not the second one.

6) From the Callahan bridge, head east. When you get to the building with the
busses, turn around, and head back in the direction you came from. You'll see a
ramp on your left to jump a small building.  Clear the building completely for
credit.

7) As you enter the docks, turn right. There's a jump over some truck trailers.
 Clear all trailers for it to count.

8) As you leave your hideout, take a left(south) and drive in the grass near
the riverwalk. As you approach the elevated walkway, you'll see a concrete ramp
just past it. Hit this ramp going north to jump the walkway.  Clear the walkway
for it to register.


*STAUNTON*

9) As you leave your hideout, take a right. Then take the 1st left(it's not on
the map)and you'll come to a multi-level parking garage. Drive to the top
floor; there's a ramp on the southwest corner.  This one seems to be giving a
lot of people some trouble.  I've gotten it to register 2 ways - favor the left
side of the ramp so you end up flying over the trees into the lot below.  I've
also landed on the sidewalk to the right of the trees, and got credit that way
as well.

10) As you leave your hideout, take a right. Then take the second left(first
left according to the in-game map)which takes you down a hill, and curves to
the right(south). In the southeast corner, after 2 smaller jumps, is the Unique
Jump.  Clear the water and land safely on the next dock for credit.

11) As you leave your hideout, take a left, then your first right. Take this
street east until you come to a T interection, and take a right onto the
highway going south. You'll come to a point where, in the center, there will be
a small incline that allows you to get onto the center of the highway. It will
slope down, between two trees, and through a small 'tunnel' up the ramp.  You
don't have to clear the Callahan Bridge for credit - slamming into the
billboards seems to be enough.  :)

12) From the Callahan Bridge, head south. Almost immediately on your right,
you'll see an internet cafe' with glass walls. Drive through the glass, up the
stairs, and out the other side. (Thanks to Rossi_84) This one is tricky just
because of the awkward approach angle.  Land on the path past the first set of
bushes on your right, and you should get it.

*SHORESIDE*

13) As you enter Shoreside from the Shoreside Lift Bridge, take a left on the
first street. Keep heading west, into the airport. Crash through a gate and
follow the road as it curves south. As the road curves west again, there should
be an airliner with the jump set up against it.  I believe you get credit if
you land on the wing, or completely clear it.

14) Same area as the previous jump, but keep driving west, past the airliner.
You'll come to a hangar on your left, with 3 yellow and white striped jumps
next to it. Use one of these jumps to fly over the hangar.  With all the hangar
jumps, you have to clear the building completely.

15) Same area again. Drive by the hangar you just jumped, heading south. You'll
come to a hangar with the same yellow and while striped jumps on one side, and
helicopters on the other. You just have to clear the hangar, not the
helicopters, for credit.  I received many, many emails on this one;  thanks to
all who wrote me.

16) And once more, same area in the airport. East of the previous jump, there's
yet another hangar and with 3 ramps by it. You know what to do - clear the
hangar.

17) As you enter Shoreside from the Shoreside Lift Bridge, stay on this road
briefly and you'll come to a dirt path on your right, just before the first
billboard. Take the path to a broken bridge, and jump it.  Simply land on the
other side for it to count, and it doesn't have to be pretty.

18) As you enter Shoreside from the Shoreside Lift Bridge, stay on this road
follow it as it curves heading north. You'll get to the top of a hill; follow
the road west. Right before you get to the T intersection, take a left into the
area on the corner. As you pass the building on your left, look east. There's a
ramp against the wall. Make SURE you angle to the left so that you land in the
fenced-in area on the building below or it WILL NOT COUNT! This one drove me
crazy trying to figure it out.

19) Same exact area as the last jump, but it's hidden in an alley in the
southeast corner.  Land *cleanly* on top of the 5-garage building below,
roughly over the second garage from the left.  You'll go flying off the roof
due to your speed, but you'll get credit.

20) As you leave your hideout, head south and drive down the grassy hill to the
road below. Now, follow the road north, up the hill and through the tunnel.
Eventually, the road curves to the right - but to the left is a dirt barrier.
Hit it, jump the river, and land on solid ground for it to register.
