The game's New York City is also more "life-like" compared to previous games in the series: vendors sell donuts, NPC (Non-player character) pedestrians talk rather than simply grunting and screaming, and numerous side jobs (such as taxi driving and car towing) are available. Several things have changed in the game from real-life New York, for example, New York Police Department has simply been dubbed into "City Police". However, the game completely lacks any kind of weather. The only atmospheric changes are the day-to-night cycle. Inaugurated in 1887 at the now defunct Morris Park Racetrack in The Bronx, New York, in 1905 the race was moved to Belmont Park. It was contested on dirt from inception through 1970, and again in 1977, 1979 and 1988. The race was hosted by Aqueduct Racetrack in 1959 and 1961, plus between 1963 and 1967. Before 1902, it was run in two divisions, one for fillies and one for colts (Colt (horse)). After 1915, it was restricted to fillies. The inaugural race took place at Morris Park Racecourse in The Bronx, New York where it remained until 1905 when it was moved to the new Belmont Park. Through special arrangements, in 1910 it was hosted by Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. Aqueduct Racetrack hosted the race in 1960 and again from 1962 to 1968.

The Bronx

'''The Bronx''' is the northernmost of the five boroughs (Borough (New York City)) of New York City, in the U.S. state of New York. Coextensive with '''Bronx County''', it was the last of the 62 counties (County (New York)) of New York State to be incorporated. Located north of Manhattan and Queens, and south of Westchester County (Westchester County, New York), the Bronx is the only borough that is located primarily on the mainland (Contiguous United States). According to the 2010 United States Census, the Bronx's population was 1,385,108, which increased to a Census-estimated 1,418,733 by 2013. The borough has a land area of . Of the five boroughs, the Bronx has the fourth largest inland area, the fourth highest population, and the third-highest population density. U.S. Census Bureau, ''County and City Data Book:2007'' Table B-1, Area and Population, retrieved on July 12, 2008. New York County (Manhattan) was the nation's most densely populated county, followed by Kings County (Brooklyn), Bronx County, Queens County and San Francisco, California.

The Bronx is divided by the Bronx River into a hillier section in the west (West Bronx), closer to Manhattan, and a flatter eastern (East Bronx) section, closer to Long Island. East and west street addresses, however, are divided by Jerome Avenue—the continuation of Manhattan's Fifth Avenue. The West Bronx was annexed to New York City (then largely confined to Manhattan) in 1874, and the areas east of the Bronx River were annexed in 1895. The Bronx first assumed a distinct legal identity when it became a borough of Greater New York (City of Greater New York) in 1898. Bronx County, with the same boundaries as the borough, was separated from New York County (afterwards coextensive with the Borough of Manhattan) as of January 1, 1914. On the start of business for Bronx County: Bronx County In Motion. New Officials All Find Work to Do on Their First Day. ''The New York Times'', January 3, 1914 (PDF retrieved on June 26, 2008): :"Despite the fact that the new Bronx County Court House is not completed there was no delay yesterday in getting the court machinery in motion. All the new county officials were on hand and the County Clerk, the District Attorney, the Surrogate, and the County Judge soon had things in working order. The seal to be used by the new county was selected by County Judge Louis D. Gibbs. It is circular. In the centre is a seated figure of Justice. To her right is an American shield and over the figure is written 'Populi Suprema.' ..." :"Surrogate George M. S. Schulz, with his office force, was busy at the stroke of 9 o'clock. Two wills were filed in the early morning, but owing to the absence of a safe they were recorded and then returned to the attorneys for safe keeping. ..." :"There was a rush of business to the new County Clerk's office. Between seventy-five and a hundred men applied for first naturalization papers. Two certificates of incorporation were issued, and seventeen judgments, seven lis pendens, three mechanics' liens and one suit for negligence were filed." :"Sheriff O'Brien announced several additional appointments."

Although the Bronx is the third most densely populated county in the U.S., about a quarter of its area is open space, including Woodlawn Cemetery (Woodlawn Cemetery (Bronx, New York)), Van Cortlandt Park, Pelham Bay Park, the New York Botanical Garden and the Bronx Zoo in the borough's north and center, on land deliberately reserved in the late 19th century as urban development progressed northwards and eastwards from Manhattan with the building of roads, bridges and railways.

The Bronx River was named after Jonas Bronck, who created the first settlement as part of the New Netherland colony in 1639, and eventually lent its name to the entire borough. The native Lenape were progressively displaced after 1643 by settlers. In the 19th and 20th centuries, the Bronx received many immigrant groups as it was transformed into an urban community, first from various European countries (particularly Ireland (Irish American), Germany (German American) and Italy (Italian American)) and later from the Caribbean region (particularly Puerto Rico (Puerto Ricans in the United States), Jamaica (Jamaican American) and the Dominican Republic (Dominican American)), as well as African American migrants from the American South Braver (1998) This cultural mix has made the Bronx a wellspring of both Latin music and hip hop (Hip hop music).

The Bronx contains one of the five poorest Congressional Districts in the U.S., the 15th (New York's 15th congressional district), but its wide variety of neighborhoods also include the affluent, such as middle to upper income neighborhoods like Riverdale (Riverdale, Bronx), Fieldston (Fieldston, Bronx), Spuyten Duyvil (Spuyten Duyvil, Bronx), Schuylerville (Schuylerville, Bronx), Pelham Bay (Pelham Bay, Bronx), Pelham Gardens (Pelham Gardens, Bronx), Morris Park (Morris Park, Bronx) and Country Club (Country Club, Bronx). The Bronx, particularly the South Bronx, saw a sharp decline in population, livable housing, and the quality of life in the late 1960s and the 1970s, culminating in a wave of arson. Since then the communities have shown significant redevelopment starting in the late 1980s before picking up pace in the 1990s into today.
