"Churches, hipsters and housing projects. "
―GTA IV Website

Broker is one of the four boroughs of Grand Theft Auto IV's version of Liberty City and the second largest next to Algonquin. It contains 12 out of the city's 65 neighborhoods, while its population is the third highest, estimated at 1,368,198. Its real-life archetype is Brooklyn. It is situated to the south of the borough of Dukes and connected to Algonquin by the Broker and Algonquin bridges.

Streets in Broker are named after Western-era cowboys and cowboy-related words (Cassidy Street, Deadwood Street, Earp Street, Hickock Street, and Kid Street are some examples). Avenues in Broker are primarily been named after Indian tribes (Iroquois Ave, Mohawk Avenue, Onondaga Avenue, Seneca Avenue are some examples).

Broker and Dukes are the only boroughs in the metropolitan area that share an island. Waters separate all other boroughs.

This is the borough in which the player begins GTA IV, in which Niko Bellic meets his cousin Roman Bellic, anf GTA CW, in which Huang Lee escapes from a sunken car in BOABO and to talk to Wu Lee about the loss of Yu Jian.

Broker's central business district is its Downtown neighborhood, which is a successful business district beside Outlook Park with tall buildings. Broker is still a poor borough shown in other areas though, as it was from the begininng; around eastern Broker including Schottler, Firefly Projects, and Beechwood City there are many hobos and gang members along with a high crime rate fueled by an underground drug market. Likewise, some areas in Hove Beach can be dangerous too, for example there are many armed Russian gangsters hanging around in the industrial part of Hove Beach aswell as near Niko and Romans Apartment. Much of western Broker consists of safer, middle-class neighborhoods along with the busy downtown area.
