* In the 1978 film adaptation of ''Theatre/TheWiz'', the role of Oz is played by a [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Fantasy Counterpart]] of New York City. For instance, Emerald City is the World Trade Center area; also note the five Chrysler Buildings on the skyline.

* ''TestDrive Off-Road 3'''s New York is Manhattan in the middle of a blizzard.

* ''TheShivah'' is set in New York. At least partially justified in that both Judaism and organized crime has a strong presence in the real city and feature prominently in the game's plot. Plus, creator Dave Gilbert is an ethnic Jew living in New York, so he is probably [[WriteWhatYouKnow writing what he knows]].
* Eight of the nine levels in ''SonicUnleashed'' are based off real world locations, and the Empire City/Skyscraper Scamper level is heavily based off New York and some other American cities as a result.

* The fairy-tale characters from ''{{Enchanted}}'' end up in New York... because, naturally, New York is the opposite of a fairy-tale kingdom.

* ''Hercules in New York''. Zeus blasts Hercules with a lightning bolt, casting him out of Olympus. After some strange encounters in the air and at sea, Hercules arrives in New York City. It's somewhat justified by the obvious lack of budget of that movie.

* The portal which opens between our world and the world where fairy tales are real in ''TheTenthKingdom'' is located in New York's Central Park. What makes this miniseries a particularly striking example of the trope is how the opening titles quite conspicuously, and jaw-droppingly, magically morph the New York City skyline into a fantasy land to suggest the crossing over of magic into the real world. The sequence, quite justifiably, won an Emmy. To watch the sequence, go [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcKgcF-FU9M here.]]

* DCComics averts this by having every hero protect a different (usually fictitious) city, although the two most famous (Gotham and Metropolis) are based on New York. The major [[TheDCU DC]] comic book to be set in the real NYC was the 80s run of ''TheNewTeenTitans'' which had the original Titans Tower on an island in the East River.
** Superheroes that have lived in TheDCU's New York include the Comicbook/{{Green Lantern}}s Alan Scott (originally based in Gotham), Guy Gardner, John Stewart, and Kyle Rayner; Plastic Man; ComicBook/PowerGirl (when she's not living in Metropolis); [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the Manhattan Guardian]]; the Comicbook/TeenTitans before they removed to San Francisco; and the original Sandman. Currently, Comicbook/{{Static}} and ComicBook/{{Hawkman}} are the protectors of New York in the ComicBook/{{New 52}} continuity.
