* Generally subverted, as professional wrestling in America has a very regional history, meaning that although some wrestlers may come from New York or the Northeast, far more come from the Southeast, Southwest and Midwest. (HulkHogan, the one pro wrestler [[EveryoneKnowsThat almost everyone in the world is guaranteed to know by name]], grew up in Tampa and was billed from Los Angeles.) Many of the wrestling moves most enjoyed by fans today (the suplex, for example) were created in (of all places) Iowa during the 1920s and '30s.

Compare FultonStreetFolly, the localized version where everything inexplicably happens in Lower Manhattan because it's relatively easy to film there, and NewYorkIsOnlyManhattan, which describes the tendency to ignore the Outer Boroughs in fiction, let alone the rest of New York State. Indeed, outsiders who are aware New York is also a state are often surprised that an obscure place such as Albany [[note]] "Where's Albany?"[[/note]] is the state capital; people tend to assume the state of New York is governed from the city of New York. See also TokyoIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse for {{Anime}} and Japanese TV, BritainIsOnlyLondon for UK productions, and HongKong for Chinese-language equivalents. If the writers pick someplace off the beaten path instead, you've got AliensInCardiff.

* There are plenty of examples of WWE Superstars who fit this trope: the Full-Blooded Italians, Enzio Amore & Big Cass, the Dudley Boyz, pretty much the entire ECW contingent (Philadelphia rather than New York, but still pretty close). Even quite a few wrestlers who are non-New York will be baptized thus, often to establish a [[BrooklynRage "tough-guy"/"streetwise"]] persona. Black wrestlers, for example, are likely to be billed from Harlem, partly in tribute to the [=McMahon=] family's roots and partly because, well, [[SmallReferencePools where else do Black people come from]]? D'Angelo Dinero, Wrestling/BookerT, and Ezekiel Jackson were all introduced to the world as Harlemites, despite actually being from Florida, Texas, and ''the South American country of Guyana'', respectively. The most bizarre case is probably Wrestling/JohnBradshawLayfield, who, during the second half of his in-ring career, was billed as a Wall Street investor (which he ''was'' in actuality) despite wearing a cowboy hat and quite obviously being a Texan.

** Even Grand Theft Auto III was originally supposed to be closer to that goal than it ultimately was; but due to when it was released and, the [[TheWarOnTerror unfortunate implications]] of allowing players to kill cops, driving around in (at the time) current NYC police car paint jobs (blue & white), Rockstar realized that this would go over far worse than usual, and instead, distanced itself from the city Liberty City was supposed to represent. This included using landmarks from other cities (i.e. the airport) and giving cop cars a far more traditional black & white paint job.
