'''Bayside''' is an unincorporated community located at the very northwestern corner of [[Tierra Robada]] in [[San Andreas (3D Universe)|San Andreas]]. It sits at the northern end of the [[Gant Bridge]], and is only minutes away from [[San Fierro (3D Universe)|San Fierro]] (indeed it's close enough to San Fierro that it could be accurately described as a suburb or satellite community). The town is surrounded by a [[The Cordillera|cordillera]] of unnamed mountains to the north and west, which separates it from the open sea. Bayside is a highly affluent area, apparently modeled after the [[wp:Sausalito, California|Sausalito]] and [[wp:Tiburon, California|Tiburon]] areas of [[wp:Marin County, California|Marin County]] as well as [[wp:Fort Baker|Fort Baker]], just north of [[wp:San Francisco, California|San Francisco]]. Like Sausalito, Bayside possesses a well-used [[Bayside Marina|marina]], and enjoys the isolation from the bustle of San Fierro, while maintaining the sophistication and pretense of the area. Bayside has a estimated population of 152.

Bayside-GTASA-Aerial

The town of Bayside in Tierra Robada. In the distance is the Gant Bridge.

Bayside is an unincorporated community located at the very northwestern corner of Tierra Robada in San Andreas. It sits at the northern end of the Gant Bridge, and is only minutes away from San Fierro (indeed it's close enough to San Fierro that it could be accurately described as a suburb or satellite community). The town is surrounded by a cordillera of unnamed mountains to the north and west, which separates it from the open sea. Bayside is a highly affluent area, apparently modeled after the Sausalito and Tiburon areas of Marin County as well as Fort Baker, just north of San Francisco. Like Sausalito, Bayside possesses a well-used marina, and enjoys the isolation from the bustle of San Fierro, while maintaining the sophistication and pretense of the area. Bayside has a estimated population of 152.

Bayside also sits at the western edge of Bayside Tunnel, which connects this portion of Tierra Robada with the remainder, and provides support to the highway servicing the general area.

Bayside is notably different from other towns in Tierra Robada, as it is located in a more vegetated, forested and less arid region of the county.

TriviaEdit

  • In the mission Saint Mark's Bistro the player is required to fly a plane a great distance to the east in order to reach Liberty City. Flying so far over the ocean away from the main map area causes a glitch which creates additional gang territories across the state. One such territory is a Los Santos Vagos turf in Bayside (who could be considered Bayside Vagos).
    • The glitch can also sometimes cause other related effects; other gangs may spawn in place of the Vagos including the Unused Gang 9 and the Mafia.
  • Bayside is a common spawning point for Rangers/Sheriffs and rural police due to it being regarded as a rural area despite the fact that city cars and civilians spawn as if it was an urban area. Rural Police can be seen patrolling Bayside, rather than San Fierro Police Department officers from the nearby San Fierro, suggesting that Bayside functions independently of its larger neighbour with a law enforcement contract with the sheriffs.
  • Bayside was added rather late in the game's development.[1] The fact that it was not in the Beta could be the reason for the lack of name for the nearby cordillera.
  • If you go to Bayside at any point in the game you will not trigger a wanted level despite the fact that Bayside is considered a part of San Fierro.
