New York City   1933   1984    
Marvel Cinematic Universe    

New York City is one of the many locations in LEGO Dimensions 2: The Rise of Enoch, from the Ghostbusters, Gremlins and the Muppet franchises.

Background

New York is the most populated city in the United States and the main center of the New York Metropolitan Area, the main entry for all legal immigration in the country. It is a powerful force in pop culture, as well as in politics: its influence being felt in fashion, music, theater, world governance, finance, media, research, education, entertainment, technology, and the arts. Its highly dominant power in pop culture and the arts, and business and finance has made it as the cultural and financial capital of the US overall. It is also the home to the main headquarters of the United Nations in the Upper East Side neighborhood and the New York Subway, one of the most extensive metro systems in the world, and the financial Wall Street district.

The city itself is divided into five boroughs: Manhattan (the most well-known of the five), Brooklyn (the one of most culturally, socially and ethnically diverse of the five (the other is Queens)), Queens (the location of John F. Kennedy International Airport), The Bronx, and Staten Island (the legal immigration entryway).

Ghostbusters

This city is also the home to the Ghostbusters and their headquarters since their inception, where they tried to take down many ghosts that make a mess out of the city. Although they really do their job well, an argument with the city government nearly shut down the group, and Walter Peck soon unknowingly plagued the city with more disturbed ghosts by opening the Ghostbusters' Containment Unit, causing the city to head straight for its doom with the arrival of the obscure Sumerian god Gozer who was finally released by its accomplices The Terror Dogs possessing Dana Barrett and Louis Tully.

The Ghostbusters tried to zap Gozer with their Proton Packs, but Gozer was just too strong from its return to the world to be taken down easily. It then demanded them to pick its Destructor Form or the city will be destroyed quickly. Ray accidentally picked Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, causing a giant Mr. Stay Puft (Gozer) to appear and attack the city. Luckily, Egon's idea of reversing the proton particles to destroy the Temple of Gozer and stop Gozer from bringing further more damage to New York proved to be effective when they zapped the reverse proton particles to the doors of the Temple of Gozer, destroying it and Stay Puft/Gozer in the process and making a ginormous rain of hot marshmallow gunk to rain down on the city.

Gremlins 2: The New Batch

Gremlins 2: The New Batch takes place in the city. The Clamp Center is located here. Billy and Kate also live in the city in a small apartment. Shortly after Billy rescued Gizmo from Splice O' Life, he was tricked by his superior Marla Bloodstone to go on a date with her, leaving Gizmo to wander about Clamp Tower and get wet from a stray water fountain incident. This very event spawned four new Mogwai (George, Lenny, Daffy, and Mohawk (who's actually the vengeful reincarnated Stripe from the first film) who would start a new batch of Gremlins out to tear the city apart.

The Muppets Take Manhattan

New York City served as a backdrop in The Muppets Take Manhattan. Locations used in the film include Central Park, the Empire State Building, Sardi's, Bergdorf Goodman and Broadway. Then-mayor Ed Koch made a cameo appearance.
