New Rotterdam was a Dutch colonial town which later became the present day Liberty City in the HD Universe.


A detailed history of New Rotterdam can be seen on CNT's show A History of Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto IV. The colony was established by the British explorer Horatio Humboldt on September 4, 1609. In 1647, the East India Trading Company hired a general named Gloria Hole to return civility and productivity to the colony.

On August 27, 1664, British warships attacked New Rotterdam, successfully claiming the colony and renaming it Liberty City. However, the Rotterdam name lives on in the form of the Rotterdam Hill neighbourhood in the Broker borough of Liberty City, and the Rotterdam Tower in the Algonquin borough.


New Rotterdam is based on the former Dutch colonial town of New Amsterdam, which became the present day New York City.
