Name: State of Alderney
Capital: Alderney City
Motto: Industrial wasteland meets suburban hell.

[[File:Alderney Map.png|thumb]] '''Alderney''' is a state to the west of [[Liberty City in GTA IV Era|Liberty City]]. Alderney is composed of 10 municipalities, most of them heavy industrial towns. Alderney has a large middle-class residential region, upper-class mansions and suburban towns in the north, and is overwhelmingly industrialised and non-residential in the south. Although Alderney is an independent state, it appears only a little larger than the borough of [[Algonquin]]; there may be more of the state which is simply omitted so that the state can form an island (a practice seen in every GTA game since [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]). ==Overview== ''"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."'' The '''State of Alderney''' is a small state located west of Liberty City in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], largely dominated by [[Alderney City]] based on New Jersey's [[wp:Hudson County|Hudson County]] with the exception of the areas of [[Tudor]], [[Leftwood]], and a small part of Alderney City which are based on areas of neighboring counties [[wp:Union County, New Jersey|Union County]], [[wp:Bergen County|Bergen County]], and [[wp:Essex County, New Jersey|Essex County]] respectively. Though it is considered an independent state from Liberty City, the [[LCPD in GTA IV Era|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 in GTA 1|Liberty City]]), judging by dialogue with members of the [[Pegorino Family]]. Oddly, in-game TV programs refer to Alderney as ''"The Independent State of Alderney"'', suggesting it is a state and not a city. Most Libertonians 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 [[Jimmy Pegorino|leader]] is looking to receive a seat in the Liberty City mafia council. The lower docks of Alderney contains lots of shipwrecks lined on the map with white shapes. Alderney is a neighboring island to Jersey in the English Channel, hence the name "Alderney" replacing "New Jersey" in the GTA IV canon. 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 [[Patrick McReary]]. In [[The Lost and Damned]], Alderney is unlocked from the beginning, as the main base of [[The Lost Brotherhood]] is located in the state. ==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 state is connected to [[Liberty City in GTA IV Era|Liberty City]] by the [[Booth Tunnel]] and [[Hickey Bridge]], both of which cross the [[West River]]. 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]], connects [[Alderney City]], [[Alderney]], to [[Varsity Heights]] and [[North Holland]], [[Algonquin]], [[Liberty City]]. ===Highways=== *[[Plumbers Skyway]] ([ Pulaski Skyway]) ===Tunnels=== *[[Booth Tunnel]] ([ Lincoln Tunnel]), connects [[Alderney City]] to [[Westminster]], [[Algonquin]]. ===Streets=== *[[List_of_Street_Names#Alderney|Streets of Alderney]] ==Public Services in Alderney== ===[[Police|Police Departments]]=== *Leftwood Police Dept.

Alderney is an American state located to the west of Liberty City in the GTA IV Era. The island featured in the game is part of the Greater Liberty City Area, which spans the two states.

Alderney is based on the American state New Jersey and named after the real island of Alderney in the English Channel, next to the island of Jersey.

It is not clear whether the entire state or only part of it is seen in Grand Theft Auto IV and its two downloadable content packs. In an article on the Liberty Tree website in The Lost and Damned, Alderney City is referred to as being in northern Alderney. In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, the state was removed from the map, leaving only Liberty City open to the player.

In GTA IV, access to Alderney is only permitted following completion of the mission Three Leaf Clover. Prior to this, it's possible to swim to or fly to Alderney, but at the cost of a 6-star wanted level. This can be useful to obtain the One Man Army achievement. In the two DLC packs, Alderney is accessible from the start (with The Lost and Damned being based in Alderney).

Cities and industrial areas

Elizabeth of York and Queen Elizabeth I were members of the Tudor dynasty, hence 'Tudor' county substituting for New Jersey's Elizabeth county.

Berchem is the name of a district in Antwerp, Belgium; to its west is the Hoboken district, one of the disputed origins of the name of Hoboken, New Jersey.


  • The State is based on North New Jersey. In the game, it is claimed to be named after the explorer Phillip D' Alderney, who was the only person who could live there, despite the horrible smell and ugly people.
  • It's stated in 'The Episodes from Liberty City' instruction manual that Alderney is a dreary suburbia with Industrial wastelands and strip malls. In reality, however, the state also includes a well-developed urban downtown area and several affluent-looking communities.

Much like its real-world equivalent, Alderney is often the subject of undue criticism or mocking.

Although Alderney's police officers wear a different uniform from those in the LCPD, they still are the same City Police Department.

In the beta map for GTA IV, Alderney appeared to have a piece of land extending to the north which was removed during development.


Alderney has a wide range of characters and atmospheres which include:


Crime and corruption are no less common in Alderney than in Liberty City. The Pegorino Family and the Korean Mob conduct organized crime from Alderney, and Mafia families from Liberty City, such as the Ancelottis and Pavanos, also run operations there. Alderney chapters of The Lost Brotherhood, Angels of Death, and M.O.B. also conduct criminal activity in Alderney.

The State Police of Alderney wear uniforms resembling those of the New Jersey State Police. They drive LCPD vehicles.

Food & Drink

Alderney's dining services mostly come from fast food chains, such as the Pizza This and Burger Shot in Leftwood and Westdyke. Cluckin' Bell and Wigwam Burger are also seen around Berchem. Hot dog and peanut vendors are spread throughout Alderney City. Alderney also has traditional restaurants such as Mr. Fuk's Rice Box, a Korean restaurant located in Alderney City.


Plumbers Skyway.

Alderney's outer reaches are serviced by the Plumbers Skyway, an elevated highway. The state is connected to Liberty City by the Booth Tunnel and Hickey Bridge, both of which cross the West River. 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.

Many residential garages in Alderney open when approached with a car, however the door will not close and cars cannot be saved.





Much like other streets, Alderney streets are named after famous objects or people. Northern Alderney streets are named after mountain ranges, Owl Creek Ave, Beaverhead Drive, Big Horn Drive. Central Alderney streets are named after inventors, Babbage Drive, Farnsworth Road, Edison Ave, and cult leaders, Koresh Sq, Applewhite St, Hubbard Ave, and in Southern Alderney streets are after American nuclear tests, Plumbbob Ave, Niblick St and Tinderbox St.


  • As an independent state, Alderney does not have a subway. However, around the state, many remains of a train track can be found. It's possible that Alderney did have a subway or other rail service at one point, or these are unfinished connections to Liberty City's system.


  • Although seemingly not as plentiful as in Liberty City, taxi service is available within Alderney and to destinations in Liberty City. Roman's taxi service also works in Alderney.
