In the Grand Theft Auto series, the cities have always had reference to real places but in each version is changing the face of the city as its counterpart, retaining some point of reference in every single version that changed. For example, Liberty City has been the city with more updates in the saga and has been preserved in all its versions, the equivalent of Central Park from the first to the last version.
The tables above show only the points of interest that have appeared least twice in the versions of Liberty City.
Like New York, New Jersey also shows places of interest (not in Liberty City) here in New Guernsey and Alderney mainly, as in parts of Shoreside Vale. The difference between the above places is that New Guernsey NJ (name and geography are very similar to NJ) would be part of Liberty City (1) by their size and Shoreside Vale is based elsewhere (and not primarily in NJ), however Alderney is a state based entirely on NJ and independent of Liberty City as well as is its real counterpart NY.
San Francisco also has its equivalent in the GTA series since the first game with the City of San Andreas that shows neighborhoods based on their real counterparts. The second appearance of San Francisco is San Fierro the closest version, like most similar name.
Vice City is the only place that has carried out all points and places of interest since its first version. The first version of Vice City in GTA 1 is based more on what is north and south of Miami, like elsewhere in Florida (not Miami), while the second version in GTA III Era is an exact replica of Miami Beach and a few of Miami.
