Wolfenstein: The New OrderEdit
Once the largest city in the United States of America, New York was the financial and cultural hub of the nation. At the time of Wolfenstein: The New Order, it was destroyed in December 21st, 1948 by Der Bestrafer (The Punisher), a nuclear bomb developed by the Third Reich. An irradiated wasteland by 1960, Nazi media boasts that the region may soon be rendered habitable in less than three years, thanks to the Nazi-developed terraformer technology. The Nazis are planning to rebuild New York by 1967 with Über Concrete.
Wolfenstein II: The New ColossusEdit
New York City, specifically Manhattan, is a major plot point and playable location in Wolfenstein II. Being exactly as one would expect, it is an irradiated, burned-out ruin. The skeletons of entire buildings eerily curl with altitude due to the kinetic energy of the nuclear blast stretching them.
A small but formidable cell of rebels led by Grace Walker reside at the top of the Empire State Building, which in itself is badly damaged but still standing nonetheless. It is also the only habitable location left in the city without protective gear, with the radiation levels at the topmost floors being non-lethal.
