New York City is a city on the Atlantic coast of North America, on Earth. It is divided into five boroughs -- the Bronx, on the New York State mainland; the islands of Manhattan and Staten Island; and Brooklyn and Queens, both on the western end of Long Island.
- The episode doesn't specify if the mission is on West or East 21st Street, assuming the episode is set in the borough of Manhattan. A 21st Street with no West or East directional runs through the Astoria and Long Island City neighborhoods of the borough of Queens. However, in 1930, much of that was still farmland.
Agents of the Aegis, an apparently benevolent extraterrestrial race, were based in New York City to help guide Earth through its nascent atomic era. In 1968, the agents were based at an apartment on East 68th Street. (TOS: "Assignment: Earth")
- That neighborhood is the most expensive in Manhattan. The address given in the episode, however, would put the building somewhere in the East River...
New York City was also one of the sites of a devastating terrorist attack in 2001, in which over 3,000 people were killed. (ENT: "Storm Front, Part Two") An ancestor of the Corsi family was a firefighter who died that day; his fire axe was passed down, eventually to Domenica Corsi, chief of security on USS da Vinci. (SCE novel: Oaths) The father of Carmen Renata, an ancestor of Michelle Smithfield, was also one of those killed. (Starship Farragut: "The Needs of the Many")
By the middle of the century, New York City was one of many municipalities on Earth that had lost land to the rising sea levels brought on by manmade climatic change. After World War III and initial contacts with Vulcan and Alpha Centauri, some of that land was reclaimed with the help of terraforming methods and materials that indigenous Centaurians traded to Earth nations in exchange for warp-drive technology.

During World War III, New York City landmarks such as the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty were destroyed. Though much of New York City was destroyed in the third World War, the city was eventually rebuilt. New York was fully restored by the early 22nd Century. On top of that, a New Statue of Liberty would be built. (Last Unicorn Games RPG: Starfleet Academy).
- In the TOS novel: The Galactic Whirlpool, a member of an Enterprise team exploring a generation ship saw structures that reminded him of "The ruins at Old City. New York." This could be a reference to either a historical recording or ruins still-extant in the late 23rd century as part of a museum city.
During at least the 23rd century, Empire State Hospital Complex consisted of several facilities on the east side of Manhattan Island, and on Roosevelt Island; all were connected by an underground private maglev system. (Star Trek: Avenger)
While baseball had died out as a national sport in the United States of America -- as well as an international sport -- in 2042, there was an attempt to revive it in the middle of the 23rd century. One of the old team names brought back was that of the New York Yankees. (Orion Press: "Finnegan's Challenge")
Sometime prior to the mid-2260s, Starfleet had established a transporter facility in Battery Park, at the southern tip of Manhattan. James T. Kirk used this when he traveled from San Francisco to New York City to give the eulogy at Gary Mitchell's funeral. Mitchell's parents lived at 320 East 53rd Street, overlooking the East River. (TOS novel: My Brother's Keeper trilogy: Enterprise)
Hover taxis in New York City, as well as presumably other cities, were controlled by a network of traffic computers. (Enterprise)
In 2290, an officer from USS Avenger had a lovely first date with Trish, a woman who would be one of the two great loves of his life, in New York City's East Village neighborhood and Washington Square Park. (Star Trek: Avenger: "Nobody, Not Even the Rain, Has Such Small Hands")
During the Breen attack on Earth in October 2375, one of the four cities targeted was New York City. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon) A total of 22 million people are killed. (Dominion War Timeline: "The Final Push to Victory: September-December 2375")
