* The original VideoGame/MarioBros and presumably the original VideoGame/DonkeyKong (seeing as the [[Film/KingKong source material has this]]) take place in New York, the former taking place in the [[AbsurdlySpaciousSewer dense underground sewer network]] as WordOfGod states. This explains the show and movie expanding it to Mario and Luigi living in Brooklyn, and partially explaining their Italian roots.

The original VideoGame/MarioBros and presumably the original VideoGame/DonkeyKong (seeing as the [[Film/KingKong source material has this]]) take place in New York, the former taking place in the [[AbsurdlySpaciousSewer dense underground sewer network]] as WordOfGod states. This explains the show and movie expanding it to Mario and Luigi living in Brooklyn, and partially explaining their Italian roots. Later games (particularly starting with the original ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld2YoshisIsland Yoshi's Island]]'') have retconned this detail out so that Mario and Luigi have always lived in the Mushroom Kingdom.
** Despite the previous retcon, ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'' has an area called "New Donk City", which is a location in the Metro Kingdom. New Donk City is essentially a recreation of downtown New York City, with one area containing many neon signage typical of Times Square. The city is, oddly, populated with realistic-looking humans who contrast the cartoon-like proportions of the usual Mario cast. Many street signs and license plates around the city make reference to the ''Franchise/DonkeyKong'' series, and the mayor is Pauline, Mario's original girlfriend, leading some to think that New Donk is the retconned setting of the original ''Donkey Kong'' and ''Mario Bros.''

* ''Series/UnbreakableKimmySchmidt'' takes place mostly in Manhattan and exploits it heavily. After being rescued from the bunker, Kimmy is taken to be on ''Today'' on NBC and decides to stay in New York to make a new life for herself. She moves in with Titus, with Lillian as their landlady, in an unnamed neighborhood in Upper Manhattan. Titus aspires to sing on Broadway and most of Jacquelyn's material centers around her being a sheltered Park Avenue wife and later trying to grow out of it. Lillian has never left Manhattan until the end of season one and can't drive, and is still hoping to see the completion of the 2nd Avenue Subway.

* Every episode and every page of ''Anime/KekkaiSensen''. The not-all-that-modified Hellsalem's Lot, formerly NYC, is so painstakingly rendered it's as much of a character as the series's castmembers.

* The primary focal point for most of ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}!'' is New York. There is an exception in the Flying Pussyfoot story, which takes place on a transcontinental railroad... heading to New York.

** In the first film the BPRD headquarters are located not far from NYC (bear in mind, in the comics they were in Fairfield, Connecticut) and the first red alarm we see them respond to ''just so happens'' to be right in the city.

** The Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse films have tended to avoid this however. While much of the action in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' takes place in New York, ''Film/IronMan1'', ''Film/IronMan2'' and ''Film/IronMan3'' primarily take place in California, ''Film/{{Thor}}'' takes place in New Mexico, ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'' takes place in London when on Earth, ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' takes place in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII-era Europe, ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' takes place in Washington, D.C., and ''Film/AntMan'' takes place in San Francisco. This even extends to certain backstories, such as the MCU version of [[Film/BlackPanther Erik Killmonger]] growing up in Oakland instead of Harlem.

The major exception to this is ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'', which does take place in New York (primarily in Queens).
