    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 'www.gtasamasters.com' 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 
    www.codejunkies.com and look for the desired code. Another good site 
    which is a group of people translating unofficial codes for AR and 
    all is www.thetpcc.com.   
    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.
