* In a column he did in retaliation for a New York Times piece on Miami being a crime-ridden druglord paradise, DaveBarry tells of researchers from New York asking people why people didn't like New Yorkers and being told everyone was so rude. "[[IResembleThatRemark Then the researchers spat on them]]."

* In ''Literature/BigTrouble'' by DaveBarry, there's a suitcase-sized nuclear bomb is on the loose that CIA agents explain [[HarsherInHindsight the True Believer intends to blow it up in the middle of Times Square]] (the book was written pre-September 11th), which prompts one character to remark it wouldn't be a big loss.

* The New York of the Main/MarvelUniverse is an extremely dangerous place, plagued by everything from costumed supervillains to alien invasions to attacks by the odd EldritchAbomination. While the city's superheroes have managed to keep things from getting ''completely'' out of hand, {{Innocent Bystander}}s are all too frequently killed by these threats before the superheroes managed to stop them.

* ''Series/{{Daredevil 2015}}'' carries over the comics' portrayal of the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood as pretty horrible. It acknowledges that the area had gotten better in recent years, but justifies the current situation by saying that things went ''back'' to being rotten after New York took heavy damage during ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}''.

* ''Series/{{Daredevil 2015}}'' carries over the comics' portrayal of the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood as pretty horrible. It acknowledges that a seedy neighborhood. Hell's Kitchen has gentrified in real life, but in the show, the area had gotten better in recent years, but justifies the current situation by saying that things went ''back'' to being rotten after New York took heavy damage during ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}''.as a result of [[Film/{{The Avengers|2012}} the "incident"]] (consequently, the show was filmed in neighborhoods of Brooklyn that bear some resemblance to Hell's Kitchen of the 1970s).

** ''GangsOfNewYork'' mostly takes place in the historic Five Points slum, which is filthy, violent and crime-plagued, ruled over by rival gangs and a corrupt police force. And then the Civil War Draft Riots break out and the area gets destroyed by cannon fire (which really happened).

** ''SoylentGreen'': where New York is hugely overcrowded as a result of the global population swelling by 400%. Shortages and civic unrest are endemic.

* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', its sequel, and the Video Game. Diners at Tavern on the Green ignore a panicked Louis Tully as a Terror Dog possesses him; the combined negativity of the city's denizens manifests as a river of slime; the city is routinely attacked by ghosts of its own homeless and construction-workers...the list goes on and on. Worst of all is the feeling of a city without spiritual direction, and the city's only contact with the other side is mischievous at best and outright malevolent at worst. Subverted in the sequel's climax, when the Ghostbusters use the Statue of Liberty to awaken the good feelings lurking beneath New York's crusty exterior and combat the slime's negative influence.

* A background theme of ''MadMen'' is the decline of New York City during the 1960s. In season 2 (set in 1962), 22 year old Peggy's biggest concern about riding the subway alone at night was that [[AluminumChristmasTrees the bamboo seats]] would ruin her stockings. In season 6 (set in 1968), sirens play in the background of almost every scene, the Drapers' Upper East Side penthouse is robbed, and Peggy's boyfriend is stabbed while waiting at a bus station near their home on the Upper West Side.

Despite this, the narrator misses both the girl and the area. The song concludes with the narrator [[BrooklynRage tracking down the murderer and throwing him under a train on the subway]]. Even by FLC's standards, this song is graphic.

* FunLovinCriminals' Southside begins in describing a murder that takes place on the southside of Delancey Street, then describes the area as:
--> That part of town, that frightens the masses
--> Filled with mean motherfuckers and noxious gases
--> They’re all bums girl
--> They’re livin’ in their fucked up places
--> I’m talking murder, I’m talking blackmail and jazz
--> And guys with burned up faces
