* Both ''XMenLegends'' have a level there (then again, see the Marvel example in Comics, above). In the first, it's the very first mission, where {{Wolverine}} and Cyclops rescue viewpoint character Magma. In the sequel, Apocalypse attacks New York because, as he sums up, "Now I've razed their mightiest city".

Added DiffLines:

* The blog [[http://www.humansofnewyork.com Humans of New York]], a series of street photographs and interviews with people on the streets of NYC. This blog pretty much runs on exoticizing New Yorkers and implying that they're more inherently interesting than people elsewhere.

* Ever notice that in ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', as well as its sequel and AnimatedAdaptation, that nearly ''everything'' paranormal -- including the end of the world -- tends to happen somewhere in or near New York City?

** The 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/WorldWar2-era Europe and ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' takes place in Washington, D.C.

* Virtually all the heroes of the MarvelUniverse set up shop in New York, as well as the major teams like Comicbook/TheAvengers and the Comicbook/FantasticFour. (The Comicbook/{{X-Men}} were usually based in Westchester County before the move to Utopia, off the coast of San Francisco. They've since returned to Westchester.) Part of this was their distinction of living in a "real city" versus most of the fictional DC ones. Teams not set in New York are either the rare {{West Coast team}}s, the "international" teams that pop up every so often, or jokes (the Great Lakes Avengers). Naturally, all the bad stuff for them to save the world from occurs in New York as well.

It is worth pointing out a lot of NYC streets aren't actually filmed there; more than one California studio (and some other studios outside the US) has a dedicated NYC backlot.

Is an AlienInvasion in progress? The [=UFOs=] will land in Queens. Is there a neighborhood full of world-class martial artists with superhuman powers? That's Chinatown. UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny? Madison Square Garden's got your front-row seats. A magical gateway between worlds? Look in Queens Midtown Tunnel... or even Central Park. And, of course, look out for the MageInManhattan.
