The Columbus Avenue (red) in the Liberty City map.

Columbus Avenue is a north-south bound street in Grand Theft Auto IV acting as the primary thoroughfare through Eastern Algonquin. It's a street being the third-longest and a main street/throughfare in Liberty City. It's based on New York City's Fifth Avenue stretching 20 blocks and has its terminus in East Holland and The The Exchange/Castle Gardens.

DescriptionEdit

Its Western Algonquin counterpart is Frankfort Avenue which serves as the primary throughfare of travel through Western Algonquin. Its northern terminus is located in East Holland in the intersection with Uranium Street, the street then continues directly south into the Middle Park district and then south into the heart of the city. It travels through the eastern side of the Star Junction district.

Columbus Avenue then travels into the Lower Easton district, then Chinatown and finally into The Exchange/Castle Gardens, where there's the main Bank of Liberty chain where the road terminates along South Parkway in Castle Gardens.

Events of GTA IVEdit

The street is used in some missions; mainly one; Three Leaf Clover, at the Bank of Liberty, and a Rebla can be stolen for Stevie's Car Thefts in Easton.

As visible on the street, and stated on Weazel News, LibEl is doing construction work (with visible ducts and pavement cuts), resulting in a complete block of traffic between Jade and Iron streets.

Southbound detour: Use Jade east, Albany south, and Hematite west back to Columbus.

Northbound detour: If you can, avoid it entirely and use Albany or Frankfort - the detour is rather complex. If you need to, take Iron west, Frankfort north, and Jade east back to Columbus - although this takes you basically halfway across the island.

In the under-construction portion is an operational newsagent, and the United Liberty Paper offices.

LandmarksEdit

Notable BusinessesEdit
