Happiness Island, as seen from the sky

Happiness Island is an island in the water surrounding Liberty City, officially part of the borough of Algonquin. It is based on the real-life Liberty Island, complete with its own version of the Statue of Liberty, called the Statue of Happiness. The end mission partially occurs on Happiness Island.

Unlike the real-life Liberty Island, Happiness Island has only a light police presence; no reinforcements should arrive (apart from Police Mavericks and Annihilators) as the island is isolated from the mainland, and Predator patrol-boats cannot dock to transport foot police. The island is large enough for the player to escape from a one-star Wanted search radius on foot if they stay out of sight of police, which is useful for players hunting the six pigeons on the island.

There are forklifts on the south-eastern side of the island; a Faggio and a randomly-spawned vehicle can be found to the south.

Happiness Island is a great location for Team Deathmatch, as one can trap the enemy team on either of the 2 piers. This can easily result in 100-kill games in an Assault Rifles-only match. Trapped opponents may escape using the boats at the piers, however.
