Question from Pringledude
How many different Seinfeld events are there?
so far, I've witnessed 2, and heard of 3. I was wondering if there were anymore in this game, or if there were references to other shows/movies based in New York.

He's referring to perceived Seinfeld references in the game--the most notable one being inside one/some/all diners where four people are in booth and somewhat resemble the cast of the television series "Seinfeld". If you Google " 'GTA IV' Seinfeld", you'll see a couple relevant answers. Outside of that, I don't know that this has been specifically documented.

There is also a reference to The French Connection in the game aswell. I can't remember what the mission is called, but it is the mission where you have to chase the subway train in your car. Basically an exact copy of a scene from the movie where Gene Hackman does the same thing.
