[[Image:GTA4-FullSize-Liberty-City2-1-.jpg|thumb|Alderney Road Map]] ''"Alderney - "Industrial wasteland meets suburban hell."'' ''If Algonquin is the privileged child of the Liberty City family, then Alderney is most definitely the retarded younger brother -- an endless sea of run-down homes peppered with phallus-like smokestacks thrusting into the sickly clouds above. Simply put? Nobody wants to live in Alderney, and those that are unfortunate enough to live in the district desperately want to get out."'' ==Overview== '''State of Alderney''' or simply is a small state located west of [[Liberty City in GTA IV|Liberty City]] in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], largemy dominated by ''[[Alderney City]]'' based on New Jersey's Hudson county with the exception of the areas of [[Tudor]] and [[Leftwood]] which are based on areas of neighbouring counties Union County and Bergen County respectively. Though it is considered an independent state from ''Liberty City'', the [[Liberty City Police Department|LCPD]] patrols the area. It is implied to be part of a state called Guernsey (the name given to Jersey City in the original [[Grand Theft Auto 1]] version of [[Liberty City]]), judging by dialogue with members of the [[Pegorino Family]]. Oddly, ingame TV programs refer to Alderney as ''"The Independent State of Alderney"'', suggesting it is a state and not a city. Most Libertorians hate Alderney (''"Nobody wants to live in Alderney.''"). Defined as ''"Strip malls and condos"'', ''Alderney'' is a run-down industrial dockland area, home to the [[Sprunk]] plant, businessman [[Phil Bell]], and [[:Category:Media|media]] company [[Our Own Reality]]. The area is dotted with small suburban areas and oil refineries. [[Image:Alderney City Skyline.png|[[Alderney City]]|thumb|300px|left]] Alderney is also the base of operations for the Pegorino Family, a minor mafia family whose [[James Pegorino|leader]] is looking to receive a seat in the Liberty City mafia council. Jersey City and Newark are '''[[Alderney City]]''', Weehawken is '''[[Westdyke]]''', North Bergen is '''[[Berchem]]''', Eaglewood is '''[[Leftwood]]''', Bayonne is '''[[Normandy]]''', Elizabeth is '''[[Tudor]]''', and Port Elizabeth is '''[[Port Tudor]]'''. The name "Alderney" comes from the same place the name ''"New Jersey"'' comes from. Alderney is a neighbouring island to Jersey in the English Channel. Alderney does not appear in [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]]. In [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], Alderney is unlocked after completing the mission [[Three Leaf Clover]] for [[Packie McReary]]. In [[The Lost and Damned]], Alderney is unlocked in the beginning. ==Transportation== [[Image:Booth Tunnel.jpg|right|200px|thumb|The [[Booth Tunnel]]]] [[Image:Plumbers Skyway.png|right|219px|thumb|Plumbers Skyway]] Alderney's outer reaches are supplied by the Plumbers Skyway. The borough is connected to the rest of [[Liberty City in GTA IV|Liberty City]] by the [[Booth Tunnel]] and [[Hickey Bridge]], both of which cross the [[West River]] and join Alderney to [[Algonquin]] and the rest of Liberty City. A ferry terminal is under construction in Castle Garden City, Algonquin, which would supposedly connect it with the completed Alderney terminal, but the terminal is abandoned, and construction is only in progress on the Algonquin end. ===Bridges=== *[[Hickey Bridge]] ===Highways=== *[[Plumbers Skyway]] ([http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulaski_Skyway Pulaski Skyway], [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Jersey_Turnpike New Jersey Turnpike]) ===Tunnels=== *[[Booth Tunnel]] ([http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lincoln_Tunnel Lincoln Tunnel]) ===Streets=== *[[List_of_Street_Names#Alderney|Streets of Alderney]] ==Public Services in Alderney== ===[[Police|Police Departments]]=== *Leftwood Police Dept.
