** 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).

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. 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.

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.

* In the ''[[ThePendragonAdventure Pendragon]]'' series, New York is apparently the most important place in the world, and is even visited in three different eras: [[TheGreatDepression 1937]], [[NextSundayAD 201X]], and [[TheFuture 5010]]. It's where [[TheChosenOne Bobby]] is from, it's where all Earth's Turning Points occur, and it's where [[ReligionOfEvil Ravinia]] is headquartered. FridgeBrilliance kicks in when you realise that events in all the other Territories were centered around one settlement, so why shouldn't it be the same for Earth?

* The eponymous virus of the ''WildCards'' series falls over Broadway. Because of its nature, outbreaks occur all over, but New York is still the major locus of the action.

** The prevalence of disasters centred on New York and Los Angeles are [[DiscussedTrope commented on]] in ''SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}'', when the eponymous character is assigned a mission in Iowa:
--->'''Deadpool:''' Eye-O-Wa? What is this strange, exotic land of which you speak, o grand exalted poo-bah?
--->'''Director:''' [=*sigh*=] Not ''all'' disasters occur in New York or L.A., Mr. Wilson... despite what TV and comic books might have you believe.
