The Manhattan skyline of 1930s New York.

New York City was a city in New York state and one of the largest and most impressive cities in the United States of America.

Contents

Geography

Manhattan was one borough of New York City. Two landmarks, Central Park were located there. Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty lay off the shore.

History

19th century

Jack Harkness (who had left Great Britain for unknown reasons) visited Ellis Island in 1892. He died there but returned to life, immediately after, informing Harkness for the first time that he could no longer die permanently (DW: Utopia).

20th century

In 1930, the Cult of Skaro established a base of operations in Empire State Building. At the same time, a community of the homeless, known as Hooverville (one of several Hoovervilles across the United States as a result of the Great Depression), had gotten established in Central Park. (DW: Daleks in Manhattan / Evolution of the Daleks) In 1938, Orson Welles and his radio drama production company resided in Manhattan, which the Doctor and his companion Charley Pollard also visited at that time. (BFA: Invaders from Mars)

The Empire State Building was once again visited very briefly by the Daleks (as well as by the Doctor and his companions in the 1960s (DW: The Chase). In 1965, the Latter-Day Pantheon (aliens posing as modern-day gods) visited the city and established a short-lived new religion based on their worship. (PDA: Salvation)

Circa 1985, the Doctor and Frobisher went there to pick up Peri, who had taken some time off from her travels in the TARDIS there. (DWM: Time Bomb)

21st century

During the early part of the 21st century, Witch Kids, occult-oriented street gangs had spread throughout the city (as well as the world). The Doctor, on a mission of his own, visited the city as part of one of his over-reaching plot against the Butler Institute. (NA: Cat's Cradle: Warhead)

In The Year That Never Was timeline created by the Master in 2008 New York was destroyed by the Toclafane. (The Time Traveller's Almanac)

UNIT maintained a base in a skyscraper high above Manhattan. It housed a war room, as well as research into Project Indigo and the main Osterhagen key. Martha Jones was stationed there following the defeat of the Sontaran invasion. In 2009, after the Earth was transported to the Medusa Cascade, a Dalek task force took the base, killing many of its personnel although Martha escaped using the Project Indigo teleport. The city itself suffered Dalek bombardment. (DW: The Stolen Earth)

In 2067, New York was destroyed by nuclear bombs during the secret Myloki war. (PDA: The Indestructible Man)

Later history

In 2157, the Daleks destroyed New York City in the course of their invasion of Earth. (DW: The Dalek Invasion of Earth) The Doctor and Vicki went to New York when the Daleks were chasing them, they ended up on the top of the Empire State Building. After her visit there Vicki stated she would like to go again. (DW: The Chase)

By the time of the founding of New New York on the planet New Earth, the city had been re-created fourteen times, prompting the Doctor to joke that New New York should really be called New New New New New New New New New New New New New New New New York, to make it accurate. (DW: New Earth)

Behind the Scenes

Though they did not film any scenes involving actual actors, members of the Doctor Who production team visited the city in 2006 to shoot some of the location footage seen in Daleks in Manhattan and Evolution of the Daleks. In post-production, the team later altered to make the city look as it had in 1930 in post-production and made sure that the scenes matched the scenes shot back in Great Britain featuring the main actors and extras. The New York filming marked the first time in a decade, since Doctor Who: The TV Movie, that any production of Doctor Who had taken place outside of the UK, and first and, to date, only filming ever done in the United States.

Russell T Davies considered having the city be destroyed in The Stolen Earth but decided against it. (The Writer's Tale)

New York City in the 2250s

New York City is a large city on Earth in the state of New York. The city is divided into five boroughs: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island.

Contents

History

The largest city in the United States prior to First Contact, New York City was a center of world culture, finance, fashion, sports, art, and politics throughout the 19th, 20th and early 21st centuries. New York City was also the home of the headquarters of the United Nations, an international organization dedicated to providing a forum for the peaceful resolution of Earth's nation-states' conflicts created in 1945.

In the 1930s, Edith Keeler ran the Twenty-First Street Mission in New York. (TOS episode: "The City on the Edge of Forever")

In the 1960s and 1970s, Aegis agent Gary Seven maintained an office in Apartment 12B at 811 East 68th Street in New York. (TOS episode: "Assignment: Earth"; TOS comic: "Star Trek: Assignment: Earth")

In 2001, New York City was the site of a historically significant terrorist attack, when hijacked airliners were used to destroy the landmark World Trade Center towers (ENT episode: "Storm Front"; TOS short story: "Assignment: One") Approximately 3000 lives were lost, including those of many emergency response workers. A firefighter's axe belonging to one of those rescue workers would become a cherished family heirloom, being passed down through the generations, eventually to Domenica Corsi in the 2370s. (SCE eBook: Wildfire) The towers were later rebuilt. (EV comic: "The Fallen")

The Fallen was published before the 9/11 attacks, and thus depicted the Twin Towers still standing in the 23rd century. The green-hued color scheme of The Fallen may suggest the rebuilt towers were of a golden tone as some form of memorial, however it is quite probably a color effect in the comic.

New York was one of the cities affected by the nuclear attacks of Earth's World War III in 2053. (TLE novel: The Sundered)

The severity of the attack was not specified. Either the city was rebuilt, or (more likely) the attacks struck facilities near the city but not in the city proper, leaving New York damaged but not completely destroyed.

New York City -- specifically, the borough of the Bronx -- is home to Starfleet Captain David Gold and his wife, Rachel Gilman. (SCE eBook: Breakdowns)

In the 2370s, New York hosted a Starfleet office. (TNG short story: "Eleven Hours Out")

Notable Landmarks

New York City was the home of the Statue of Liberty (formally titled Liberty Enlightening the World). Originally a symbol of America's unique freedoms and liberties, the Statue of Liberty later came to be accepted as a symbol of the principles of liberty espoused by United Earth as a whole, and later still, by the United Federation of Planets. In 2375, Admiral Leonard McCoy and Captain Montgomery Scott piloted a runabout over New York City following the Breen attack on Earth, and were heartened to find, despite the minor damage to the rest of the city, "Lady Liberty" remained intact. (Tales of the Dominion War: "Eleven Hours Out.") In 2379, presidential candidate Nanietta Bacco delivered her opening campaign speech in New York City on the grounds of the Statue. (novel: Articles of the Federation)

Another significant landmark was Yankee Stadium, in borough of the Bronx, which was built in 1923. It was the home of the New York Yankees baseball franchise; its replacement, also called Yankee Stadium, was the site of the final World Series game in 2042, between the Yankees and the London Kings. (novel: Articles of the Federation)

Also:

  • Cochrane Museum
  • Chrysler Building
  • Wall Street (The Ferengi thought this was a holy site on Earth, because the New York Stock Exchange was located here.)

An Alternate History

The Enterprise over New York City

One of the factions in the Temporal Cold War, the Na'kuhl, became stranded in the 20th century, and allied themselves with Nazi Germany. By providing them with advanced weaponry, they enabled German forces to capture New York City and most of the Atlantic seaboard by 1944. The Na'kuhl maintained a base in New York, where they endeavored to build a temporal conduit to return to the 29th century. This timeline was negated when the Enterprise (NX-01), transported back in time by temporal agent Daniels, was able to destroy the temporal conduit. (ENT episode: "Storm Front")

Real World

The main offices of Pocket Books are in New York City. A number of Trek authors and editors live in or near New York City, including Margaret Clark, Peter David, Keith R.A. DeCandido, Michael Jan Friedman, Robert Greenberger, David Mack, John J. Ordover, Terri Osborne, and Marco Palmieri.

Muppet

Up to date as of February 02, 2010

From Muppet Wiki

New York, New York is the original location of the Muppet Workshop, and is the location of Sesame Workshop's headquarters. Sesame Street is taped at the Kaufman Astoria Studios in Queens. New York City is also the location of the Henson Townhouse.

Contents

Sesame Street

Sesame Street takes place in a New York City neighborhood. Sesame Street is connected to the New York Subway system, and former mayor David Dinkins visited the street in 1992, to honor Gordon with the city's Good Citizen Award.

The characters have visited Central Park in Manhattan on various occasions, notably the 25th anniversary special Sesame Street Jam: A Musical Celebration. The 35th anniversary special, What's the Name of That Song? was also partly filmed on location in New York. New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art was featured as the backdrop for the TV special Don't Eat the Pictures.

In 1983, Gordon and Mr. Snuffleupagus ran the New York City Marathon in episode 1836. Also in the 1980s, the show's opening title sequence featured footage of kids running through a unique architectural design in the form of a waterfall that runs behind the McGraw-Hill building on the Avenue of the Americas (6th Avenue). The waterfall is intercut by a walkway that connects a plaza that runs between West 48th & 49th Streets.

The Muppets Take Manhattan

New York City served as a backdrop in The Muppets Take Manhattan. Locations used in the film include Central Park, the Empire State Building, Sardi's, Bergdorf Goodman and Broadway. Then-mayor Ed Koch made a cameo appearance.

Final Fantasy

(Redirected to Barrier City article)

From Final Fantasy Wiki

The New York Barrier City

The Barrier Cities are the result of Dr. Sid's invention in the movie Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within. The Barriers powered by bio-etheric ovo-pacs protect the remaining settlements of the humans on Earth against the Phantoms.

History

Barrier Cities began as military troop facilities which were built seventeen years after the Leonid Meteor which carried the Phantoms fell on Earth. A total of 130 facilities were built across the world as a base operation for the troops of the United States Military Forces (USMF) in their combat against the Phantom threat. However, due to the development of the Zeus Cannon in 2055, some of the Barrier Cities weren't completed until two years later.

During that time, human population began moving into the Barrier Cities, due to the death of plant species which depleted the world's oxygen. Oxygen generators were built within the Barrier Cities, and life outside these settlements became almost impossible.

List

Another shot of the New York Barrier City

The only known Barrier Cities are:

  • New York Barrier City, which is the base operations of the New York USMF as well as the headquarters of the Council.
  • Houston Barrier City, where the Council evacuated themselves after the Phantom attack on New York Barrier City.
  • San Francisco Barrier City, which was attacked by Phantoms and where General Hein lost his wife and daughter.
  • Chicago Barrier City, Gray Edward's hometown.

Trivia

  • The twin towers of the World Trade Center do not appear in any of the New York City shots (except in the concept drawings on the DVD). Two months after the film was released, the towers were destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, when terrorists hijacked two commercial passenger aircraft and crashed them into both towers, which later collapsed, resulting in a total of 2,749 fatalities (excluding the 10 hijackers on the two planes, five on each plane), including 343 firefighters.

History

New York City is the largest city and largest metropolitan area, by population, in the United States. It is an international center for politics, theatre, music, fashion, finance, and culture. New York City is classified as a Global City, and houses the United Nations. The city is home to many landmarks including the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Flatiron Building, Chrysler Building, and St. Patrick's Cathedral. The World Trade Center, also known as the Twin Towers, adorned the skyline until a terrorist attack on September 11th, 2001.

In the 616 Universe, New York City is a superhero hub. Fantastic Four and Avengers headquarters are located within the city. Major heroes like Spider-Man and Daredevil also operate in various neighborhoods. Many major attacks or events have occurred within the city limits including the coming of Galactus and Onslaught's siege.

Alternate Universes

Earth-2149 (New Wakanda)

Little is known about New York before the zombie contagion arrived there, though it can be presumed it followed much the same path as New York (Earth-616).

The city was destroyed when uninfected, and zombified super-heroes battled for their lives, eventually leaving the city, and indeed the planet completely devoid of life.

40 Years Later, New York is renamed "New Wakanda" and ruled over by T'Challa, the city begins its attempt at rebirth.

Earth-37072 (Kulan Gath's Spell)

The Exiles visited a world where Kulan Gath's spell had not been undone, leaving New York City to look like the middle ages.

New York City is a city on the Atlantic coast of North America, on Earth.

During the Great Depression of the 20th century, the 21st Street Mission — run by Edith Keeler — was in New York City. (TOS: "City on the Edge of Forever")

The episode doesn't specify if the mission is on West or East 21st Street, assuming the episode is set in the borough of Manhattan. A 21st Street with no West or East directional runs through the Astoria and Long Island City neighborhoods of the borough of Queens. However, in 1930, much of that was still farmland.

The headquarters of the United Nations was in New York City beginning in 1951. 64 years later, in 2015, terrorists blew up UN headquarters. (Star Trek: Liberty)

Agents of the Aegis, an apparently benevolent extraterrestrial race, were based in New York City to help guide Earth through its nascent atomic era. In 1968, the agents were based at an apartment on East 68th Street. (TOS: "Assignment: Earth")

That neighborhood is the most expensive in Manhattan. The address given in the episode, however, would put the building somewhere in the East River...

New York City was also one of the sites of a devastating terrorist attack in 2001, in which over 3,000 people were killed. (ENT: "Storm Front, Part Two")

During World War III, New York City landmarks such as the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty were destroyed. Though much of New York City was destroyed in the third World War, the city was eventually rebuilt. New York was fully restored by the early 22nd Century. On top of that, a New Statue of Liberty would be built. (Last Unicorn Games RPG: Starfleet Academy).

New York City was the capital of the United Earth government. (Last Unicorn Games RPG: Starfleet Academy)

In the early 2270s, Fifth Avenue had no vehicle traffic but was one long slidewalk. (TOS novel: A Flag Full of Stars)

In 2290, an officer from USS Avenger had a lovely first date with Trish, a woman who would be one of the two great loves of his life, in New York City's East Village neighborhood and Washington Square Park. (Star Trek: Avenger: "Nobody, Not Even the Rain, Has Such Small Hands")

Justin Shive was born in New York City in 2341. His family lived in a 20th century brownstone in Queens. (Star Trek: Pendragon)

Transformers

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

New York City, New York, is a major city in the United States of America on Earth. Loved by some, repulsively filthy to others, it has often served as the site of Transformer activity, battles, and even bases.

I guess the Lord must be in New York City.

Real-life New York City landmarks featured in various incarnations of Transformers include:

  • The Statue of Liberty — A huge statue on an island in New York Harbor. It's been spray-painted by the Battlechargers and coated with corrostop. Decepticon Graffiti! Cosmic Rust
  • The Brooklyn Bridge — A massive suspension bridge connecting Manhattan and Brooklyn. It was the scene of Starscream's Underbase-fuelled attack on a large team of Transformers. Dark Star
  • The Empire State Building — The city's tallest skyscraper, excepting the World Trade Center towers. It was converted into a Cybertronian structure by Megatron, then converted back to normal by the Autobots; it was also climbed by Iguanus and the Sports Car Patrol. City of Steel King 'Con!
  • The Chrysler Building — A famous Art Deco skyscraper. It was set on fire by Megatron's car drones; Inferno put the fire out. It's also made an appearance on a comic book cover. Make Tracks G.I. Joe vs. the Transformers II issue 2
  • Battery Park — A park at the southern tip of Manhattan. Shockwave and Scorponok duked it out there. ...All This and Civil War 2
  • The World Trade Center towers — C'mon, have you been living under a rock? The twin towers are commonly seen as identifying icons in skyline shots of the city. City of Steel Dark Star ...All This and Civil War 2 In a dystopian future, Rodimus Prime's corpse was strung up between their shattered stumps. Rhythms of Darkness!
  • The East River — separates Manhattan from Brooklyn. Seaspray found it full of garbage. The Seacons took on Starscream there, and lost. The time travelling consciousnesses of Megatron and Prowl also fought there. Make Tracks Dark Star Flashback!

Fiction

Marvel Generation One comics

New York City was home to Marvel Comics. Their recently fired employee, writer Donny Finkleberg, also lived there, in a run-down, six-story walk-up apartment on the upper west side of Manhattan.

New York was the final destination on the Acton family's vacation. As such, the Statue of Liberty became a target for the graffiti-spreading Battlechargers. R.A.A.T. prepared for the Decepticons' arrival by closing down the statue, Liberty Island, and the surrounding harbor, and loading down the statue with its troops. Runabout and Runamuck, meanwhile, snuck aboard the Staten Island Ferry, eventually commandeering the vessel and forcing it close to the statue. They then took to the air, Runamuck distracting the R.A.A.T. troops while Runabout spray-painted the statue with an inspirational message to their appreciative audience ("HUMANZ ARE WIMPZ"). Circuit Breaker finally defeated the pair using a jury-rigged collection of Autobot parts, sending them crashing into the waters of New York's harbor.

Donny Finkleberg contributed $50,000 to help pay for cleaning the graffiti off of the statue (and, presumably, repairing battle damage.) Decepticon Graffiti!

When you get caught between the Underbase and New York City, the best that you can do is die.

When Starscream absorbed a portion of the Underbase, New York was one of the three cities he chose to destroy. Naturally, he announced this out loud, so when he arrived, an army of Autobots and Decepticons led by Blaster and Ratbat were waiting for him. Most of the battle took place on and above the Brooklyn Bridge, as well as in the "foul depths" of the East River below.

The following Transformers were taken out by Starscream:

Prowl survived Starscream's initial attack, but was deactivated following Starscream's attack on the Seacons. Flashback!

Ratbat escaped, leaving Blaster to his doom. Starscream left for his second targeted city, Tokyo. Dark Star!

Some months later, Decepticon commander Scorponok moved his headquarters to the nearby swamps of northern New Jersey as part of a plan to harvest energy. The Decepticons erected a storm generator station, creating a massive thunderstorm over the New York City area. An electrostator was to be placed atop the Empire State Building by Iguanus, collecting the storm's energy in one massive lightning bolt which would then be harvested by Scorponok's crew. However, the interference of the Autobot Micromasters under Roadhandler's command resulted in the lightning blasting the bolts out of Iguanus instead. King Con!

Roadhandler's crew made themselves at home in the city, going so far as to apprehend human thieves and make an appearance on a talk show based in New York. Roadhandler became a celebrity as a wrestler and gave self-defense lessons to local kids until a Decepticon run-in convinced him that anyone associated with him was in danger. The Interplanetary Wrestling Championship!

The Decepticons kept their base in New Jersey. This would have nearly disastrous consequences for New York when the so-called Decepticon Civil War erupted and a battle between Scorponok and Shockwave spilled over into the area of Battery Park. ...All This and Civil War 2

Optimus Prime and Nightbeat managed to contain the battle briefly, as did the Neo-Knights. After the hostilities ended, the assembled Transformers were suddenly teleported away, leaving only a very puzzled NYPD officer wondering how to write up the incident. Out of Time!

Alternate future

Hell, I still love you though, New York.

In an offshoot version of the year 2009, Galvatron and his forces had conquered much of Earth. New York was a deserted wasteland where the remains of Autobot leader Rodimus Prime were strung up between the remaining stumps of the destroyed World Trade Center towers. Rhythms of Darkness

Note: WTC towers were each about 200' on a side. So according to the art on the right, Rodimus's body would fill a football field.


IDW Generation One comics

It was a bright and sunny day in New York, when these six green guys turned up to announce a desire for peace... then started shooting everyone. This was followed by an all-out Decepticon attack, levelling much of the city and drawing the attention of the US Air Force. The Air Force fought the giant robots and lost... badly. All Hail Megatron issue 1 Soon the city was full of looting, carnage and panicked evacuations while the United States Armed Forces deployed in force to defeat the Decepticons. Before the military could do anything, the Decepticons took out the city's bridges and then began targeting the tunnels, all while broadcasting their effortless devastation to the world. All Hail Megatron issue 2

The Transformers cartoon continuity

The Transformers cartoon

The magic rat drove his sleek machine over the Jersey state line.

Megatron began efforts to convert New York City into his new base of "New Cybertron" by tunneling under the city and sinking the Empire State Building into the ground. The refashioned building was soon raised back into place, but with an all-new appearance. When the Autobots arrived to stop him, the Constructicons managed to capture Prime, and Megatron took his severed—but still functioning—head. The Autobots were forced to retreat temporarily or risk Prime's life. For a while, things went well for the Decepticons. (Even Starscream thought that Megatron was doing a good job, which is a sign of the apocalypse.) However, the Autobots went through the sewers (noting that they were more akin to "some messy swamp" than a substructure for North America's largest city) and managed to collect and reassemble Prime's body, save his right arm and ion blaster. Megatron had mounted it on his new citadel, the rebuilt Empire State Building, to serve as a defense mechanism. (Why Prime didn't just have Ratchet build him a new arm is unspecified.) Eventually, Prime was able to recover his arm, and the Decepticons were driven away. Bumblebee gained an "I heart New York" bumper sticker from the ordeal. City of Steel

The Autobots later used a New York garage owned by Sparkplug as a temporary base in the city. While on patrol, Seaspray discovered that the humans tended to dump a lot of garbage in the East River, and Cosmos observed that a "little fender-bender" on the lower West Side could tie up traffic for blocks around. Meanwhile, the Decepticons had allied themselves with the Geddis brothers, a pair of New York-based human gangsters, to collect stolen cars and convert them into drones at a secret base in the New Jersey pine barrens. The drones were then sent back into New York to attack the city, but the Autobots thwarted this plan with the help of Tracks's new friend, Raoul. The landmark Chrysler Building was damaged in the battle, requiring Inferno to climb its side and put out fires in the building and invoking Tracks' ire. Make Tracks

We got people dressed in plastic bags, directing traffic.

The Decepticons used a hip New York nightclub called Dancitron to brainwash humans into constructing a building for them, but the dynamic duo of Raoul and Tracks once again saved the day. Dancitron attracted an extremely trendy crowd of New Yorkers—so trendy they were out of style about five minutes later. The club's owners were also quite stringent about preventing the locals from breakdancing on the sidewalks in front of their establishment. Auto-Bop

Under Perceptor's guidance, the Autobots spray-coated the Statue of Liberty with corrostop to help preserve it. While this activity was underway, the Stunticons commandeered a harbor ferry boat and used it to capture Perceptor. Later, the Autobots returned to the statue when they needed to recover a sample of the chemical. They defended it from a Decepticon attack, preventing Menasor from destroying the statue with a giant lightning bug. The statue proved its ability to withstand a direct hit from Megatron's fusion cannon, which means it's a lot stronger than Ironhide's head. Cosmic Rust

The Headmasters cartoon

New York was one of the cities targeted by Sixshot for an energy-blackmailing, which involved him posing as six different villains using each of his six modes. The Autobot Headmasters staked out New York from a vantage point atop the Statue of Liberty (whose looks they compared to Arcee's while they were at it), but when they were drawn away to investigate an attack on London, Sixshot attacked the city in his gun mode. Terror! The Six Shadows

Super-God Masterforce cartoon

In his human guise, the Autobot Pretender Lander lived in New York, where he helped local police fend off an attack by Destroids early on in the Decepticons' campaign against Earth. Terror! The Decepticons' Manhunt Much later, the city was the victim of a savage, sudden attack by BlackZarak, and suffered massive damage before any of the Autobots could mobilize to stop him.
