* ''Series/TheJob'' and ''Series/RescueMe'' both take place in New York, but in the latter's case, it's kind of important to the story, what with the main character being a 9/11 survivor.

* Call it TooSoon or even BlackComedy, but the real-life September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York make this trope sickeningly self-authenticating, complete with many moments of going FromBadToWorse (multiple surprise attacks on different locations from an unknown enemy, with the precision of [[TheChessmaster a Chessmaster]]) where, for that day at least, [[TheBadGuyWins the bad guys totally won]].

** 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 and ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' takes place in Washington, D.C.

to:

** Marvel decided to promote ''Comicbook/{{USAvengers}}'' [[http://www.flickeringmyth.com/2016/11/marvel-reveals-all-53-state-variant-covers-for-u-s-avengers-1/ with variant covers featuring all 50 states.]] The problem is, many Avengers were born and raised in NYC, so when Comicbook/LukeCage got New York, others had to be spread to other states. Captain America in Delaware was justifiable (First Avenger = First State). Others, not so much, such as [[Comicbook/FantasticFour The Thing]] in Michigan and Spider-Man in New Hampshire.

This is not the case with the Netflix series, all of whom are set in Manhattan (Harlem in''Series/LukeCage'', Hell's Kitchen in ''Series/{{Daredevil}}'', ''Series/JessicaJones'' and possibly ''Series/IronFist'').



** Other MCU movies that proeminently feature New York are ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'' (climax is in Harlem), ''Film/{{Doctor Strange|2016}}'' (half in Asia, half in the city where Stephen Strange lives\works and the Sanctum Santorum is located) and ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' (that's one hero that couldn't be taken elsewhere).



* Film/RaisingHelen is set in New York and some of the plot revolves around the New York lifestyle. She even makes a joke about "bridge and tunnel" which makes no sense to us non-New Yorkers.

* Music/{{Kiss}} is from New York (Brooklyn, specifically). However, the band appeared on the scene during a decade when it was generally considered cooler for a hot rock band to be [[FlyoverCountry somewhere more toward the center of the country]] (Styx were from Chicago and Grand Funk Railroad from Flint, Michigan), so Kiss fell into step with a more blues-based style (at least in the beginning) and titles such as "Detroit Rock City." However, the most famous track on Ace Frehley's 1978 solo album was "New York Groove," which is a CoverVersion of the song from an unknown band called Hello. And during the group's "no-makeup" years (1983-1996), the Noo Yawk accents became a little more prominent; you can hear them on "All Hell's Breakin' Loose" and their cover of "God Gave Rock 'N' Roll to You."

* Ever notice that in ''Film/{{Ghostbusters 1984}}'', as well as [[Film/GhostbustersII its sequel]] and AnimatedAdaptation, that nearly ''everything'' paranormal -- including the end of the world -- tends to happen somewhere in or near New York City?

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.
