New York City

New York City from The Incredible Hulk.

New York City is a real-world location in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Officially, the City of New York, or simply New York, it is the largest city in New York, comprised of five boroughs: Manhattan (Tony Stark's birthplace), Brooklyn (Steve Rogers's birthplace), Queens (Peter Parker's birthplace), the Bronx, and Staten Island.

Manhattan is treated as the heart of city and mostly treated as if they were the same, although technically Manhattan is an island, where as New York City is on the mainland. It is specifically where the Battle of New York occurred, when the Chitauri invaded with help from Loki.[1] This created a chain of events that led to the revelation that aliens exist, the public awareness of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Chitauri weapons being found[2] and sold on the black market.[3] Many citizens have been affected by this either by the loss of loved ones or property damage, most of which is covered in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC and the first four shows on Netflix.
