The small district of Little Italy (red) in the Liberty City map.

Little Italy is the smallest neighborhood in GTA IV and one of few Italian communities in the city. It is located in southern Algonquin, Liberty City. It is bordered to the north by Feldspar Street (Suffolk); to the south by Emerald Street (Chinatown); to the east by Columbus Ave (Lower Easton), and to the west by Liberty Lane (City Hall). These borders make Little Italy the smallest neighborhood in the entire Liberty City metropolitan area.

Character

Little Italy, being an Italian enclave, has a heavy presence of the Italian Mafia. It gives the impression of being an "old-world", working-class neighborhood with its cobbled, narrow streets. As with many of the older, old immigrant-heavy neighborhoods in the city, the neighborhood features a number of pre-war style tenements, with many alleyways intersecting the short city blocks. Most of the neighborhood's aforementioned restaurants are clustered along Brown Place, where as Denver Avenue serves as the main commercial strip.

Influence

Little Italy is a copy of Manhattan's Little Italy neighborhood. Everything about the GTA IV neighborhood (obviously its name, its size, its cobbled streets, the heavily Italian presence, its architecture) is reminiscent of the actual neighborhood.

Transportation

While Little Italy is not directly served by the Liberty City Subway, there are two stations within proximity of the neighborhood. The Suffolk station on the K/C Algonquin Inner Line is located on Garnet Street between Back Passage and Ersatz Row in its namesake neighborhood; the station is underneath the Rotterdam Tower and as such, is a popular stop for people wishing to visit it, as mobsters may be seen at the station as well. The Feldspar station on the A/J Algonquin Outer Line is located at the intersection of Emerald Street, Frankfort Avenue, and Union Drive West, at the borders of Castle Garden City, City Hall, and Suffolk.
