Torrington-GTA3-southwards

A major thoroughfare in Torrington, as viewed to the south in GTA III.

Torrington is a commercial district in southeast Staunton Island, Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto Advance and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. It borders Newport to the north, Bedford Point to the west, and an unspecified body of water to the south and east.

Character Edit

Torrington is based on Financial District, Manhattan, and this is where are located most of the skyscrapers in Liberty City. Torrington serves primarily as a financial district in Staunton, its primary features being its massive office towers and strong corporate presence, contrasting the Bedford Point, which also fulfills as a similar role as a commercial hub, but in a less formal manner. There is a real city called Torrington in Connecticut.

Places of interest Edit

Torrington boasts few places of interest aside its towering skyscrapers and a casino on the southeast, which assumes different names in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, Kenji's Casino and Big Shot Casino, respectively.

Among Torrington's skyscrapers, the tallest building in the entire city in GTA III, which the official website of GTA III claims is occupied by the "Jefferson St. Credit Union" and situated in southwest Torrington. Likewise, AMCO's headquarters appears to be based in the district, as are FBC Bank, Morning Star Industries, FBI offices and the LCPD's head office (including that of the SWAT branch).

In GTA Liberty City Stories, the Jefferson St. Credit Union building is only half its height as it is still undergoing construction. Donald Love uses the building as his temporary head office and residence (as opposed to the Bedford Point-based Love Media Building in GTA III), before his defeat in city elections and subsequent bankruptcy after "Love on the Rocks".

Gang control Edit

In GTA III, Torrington is controlled entirely by the Yakuza, but back in 1998, it is under Sindacco control based in the Big Shot Casino. Eventually it fell into Yakuza hands after Paulie Sindacco was assassinated in Dead Reckoning. In GTA III, Kenji's Casino serves as the location where the player may receive missions from Kenji Kasen, the co-leader of the Yakuza circa 2001. In GTA Liberty City Stories, set three years earlier, the player may receive missions from Toshiko Kasen, the disgruntled wife of the then head of the Yakuza, Kazuki Kasen, from a high-rise apartment near The Big Shot Casino in Torrington.
