The Broker Safehouse is Niko Bellic's first safehouse in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Getting and Losing the Safehouse

Located below an elevated railway line near the southern end of Mohawk Ave in Russian-influenced Hove Beach, the apartment was Roman Bellic's initial place of residence (after spending a period of time living in his taxi depot), and was offered as a place of accommodation for Niko upon his arrival in Liberty City, to Niko's dismay (as he found Roman was not living in a mansion, as he had claimed in his letters and e-mails).



During the mission "Roman's Sorrow", the apartment and Roman's cab depot are burnt down by the Russians (it is revealed on the news that the arsonists used Molotov Cocktails). The two cousins then escape to Bohan, where Roman's fiancée Mallorie offers them an apartment. While the Broker safehouse is effectively inaccessible after the mission, vehicles may still be stored at its parking space outside.

Despite this, it is possible to re-enter the safehouse. To do so, get a small car (like a Comet) and get it sitting at the top of the staircase, and then get out. Niko will be teleported into the air and will land in the apartment. Once Niko is in the apartment, he will be unable to exit unless the player committs suicide.

Amenities

The safehouse is rudimentary, with a futon (sofa-bed) which acts as a save point, a television, a dirty kitchen with a table, a radio (which is tuned to Liberty Rock Radio) and a wall with peeling wallpaper. Like most other safehouses in the game, there is no computer in the apartment. A design poster of a blue Banshee with a white stripe can be found in the house, as can numerous posters of scantly clad women. There is a picture of Mallorie Bardas, Roman's girlfriend, on the bedside table. There is another one photo of her with a younger and slimmer Roman in the commode nearby. There is an inaccessible door in the corner of the kitchen, presumably leading to the bathroom. The safehouse is very dirty, as shown when Roman first walks in and steps on a cockroach.

After GTA IV

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars shows that the apartments have been transformed into a row of shops, but it also shows that Roman's cab depot is in working order, so the canonicity of this is debatable.

Glitch

  • A common glitch occurs on the parking space in front of the safehouse. After the first mission, the door leading to the street will be open. Closing the door will corrupt the parking space and any car parked there will disappear when the player reloads their game. (occurs on the PlayStation 3 version)
  • Sometimes the chair at the front of the kitchen might swing left and right for no reason.
