These are 4 of my favorite neighborhoods and where I'd live in them:Little Italy/Suffolk:
I just love the old architecture, the funny people, and rich culture in this area. Many people may not know, but on the furthest west street in Little Italy(there is only two streets going N to S, lol small) there is this white apartment with two windows poking out. Behind it is a balcony that overlooks the space below which is a beautiful autumn maple, covering this beautiful wooden deck style patio with tables and chairs underneath. The rest of the view are the buildings of Suffolk and surroundings, and best of all, a close up view of the Rotterdam Tower. It's truly a unique place, I'd pay anything to live there if it existed. Check it out too, it's nice:
When you're on the street, it just looks like some ordinary Little Italy style apartment, but behind it is really a wonder...Apart. Lower Easton:
There is this charming brick townhouse on the Southwestern corner of Feldspar St. & Luddit Row. From the looks of the exterior, it looks like it would be very nice inside. And it's got a view of everything: The GetaLife Tower, Rotterdam Tower, a little bit of the Algonquin Bridge, etc. It's also barely got traffic in front of it for some reason. The streets in that area are just so narrow and beautifully detailed, and the buildings, well you'll never see any of those anywhere else in Liberty City. Really love that "139" Building.Willis/Meadow Hills:
I've done research on this area back in June & July and have to say, what a damn interesting place and it is truly one of the most beautiful neighborhoods I've ever seen in any GTA. Downtown Meadow Hills looks like a village full of Tudor Style apartments. In Willis, you'll find yourself surrounded by tons of charming old shops and law offices. I've seen most of the buildings in that neighborhood in real life NY, and I have to say, R* did a great job. The buildings in Willis and the buildings in Northern Forest Hills, NY look identical, they're like they were simply copied into the game.
Willis/Meadow Hills remains one of my favorite neighborhoods of all LC. It's just so peaceful, so architecturally rich, so interesting.
If I could live there, it would have to be at Bulgarin's estate. It's right in front of the Meadow Parks and has a nice view of the towers to the right.Berchem:
I've also done some research on this neighborhoods real life counterpart(Hoboken) and find it very interesting and architecturally rich as well. It's full of colorful and unique buildings with shops at the first floors. My favorite building is the Fire Station
. It's odd looking yet intriguing with it's Romanesque Revival style architecture. If I could live in Berchem, it'd have to be that tall red condominium that overlooks everything. Downtown Alderney, Algonquin, etc...
So yeah. I really love Liberty City and it's arguably one of the most detailed and beautiful cities I've ever seen in any video game. I don't know how Los Santos will be, but I sure hope it's interesting, because Liberty City set the bar really high. This post has been edited by Kifflom112 on Wednesday, Nov 21 2012, 07:17
