New York City, often shortened to just New York or NYC, is a major metropolitan city located on the eastern coast of the United States. It is near the city of Washington, D.C.
It is home to the headquarters of S.H.I.E.L.D. Points of interest include the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, and George Washington Bridge. Companies based out of the city include Stark Enterprises and Pym Industries.
The aliens then used three ships to attack S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters but were defeated by the Avengers.
Months later the Chitauri attacked the nation of Wakanda. The Chitauri Command Ship spread a field across the planet and used walkers and fliers to attack cities such as New York, London, Moscow, Paris, and Sydney. While the Avengers fought the ship in Wakanda, the Hulk broke out of his prison and fought the aliens in New York. Eventually the Chitauri were defeated and the field went down.
