Humbolt river

The Humboldt River as seen on the game's map.

The Humboldt River is a large river in Liberty City which separates Algonquin Island from Broker, Dukes and Bohan, with Charge Island and Colony Island located on the river. It is named after the fictional explorer Horatio Humboldt.

The river is implied by the documentary "A History of Liberty City" to be heavily polluted before even the establishment of the city itself, due to the natives using it effectively as a sewer.

There are two Stunt Jumps on the river, one near Hatton Gardens and one near Colony Island. You have to use a boat for both of the jumps.
