Niko's cousin, Roman, brought Niko to Liberty City with a bunch of false promises.

He claimed to be living there with lots of money, sports cars, women and a mansion.

When Roman arrives at the docks to greet his cousin, he's too drunk to drive, so Niko must take the wheel.

Once you have control of Niko, drive back to the "mansion" on Mohawk Avenue, Hove Beach, and stop in the yellow marker to trigger the cutscene.

Niko is less than impressed with the mansion, to say the very least.

Roman has to leave after a quick chat with Niko, but invites him to meet him later at the taxi depot.

After the cutscene, various instructions are given on how to save the game and how to store cars at the safehouse.

This is your first safehouse, and you can save the game here at any time providing you aren't in the middle of a mission.

In the first few missions of the game, pay close attention to the instructions on the screen which tell you how to control Niko and operate basic functions with the cellphone.

The cellphone becomes a very important aspect of the gameplay. Vlad Glebov then enters the cab depot and warns Roman to pay his debts.
