New York City was a large city located in New York. It was the most populous city in the state. It was also home to the famous Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Empire state building, the Freedom tower, the Chrysler building, the Manhattan bridge, Central Park, and Rockefeller Center.
It wasn't known if New York City was mentioned. But in one of the scenes, where President Thomas Wilson was giving his address to what was happening across the world, New York City was shown, but it only showed Times Square and not the entire city. As the signal to President Thomas Wilson was cut off, everyone started to panic. However, during the 2012 Apocalypse, it may not be known if New York City was either incinerated from the ash cloud, but it is presumable that the city is underwater from the Worldwide Flooding.
