"They headed for a distant pack of skyscrapers, an ominous elevation that studded the horizon like giant chipped and broken teeth in the mouth of some mythical hockey goalie. Two of the buildings looked familiar. Shimmering rectangles. Twin towers. The World Trade Center! New York."

New York is a state in the Northeastern United States where the country's most populous city, New York City, is located. In a simulated reality, New York was conquered by the Yeerk Empire, where they destroyed every single skyscraper except the Empire State Building, which they modified into the Yeerk Empire State Building, and the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, which they left untouched.

History[]

"See, I'd been to New York before. A class trip. I may not have noticed much of the cultural stuff I was supposed to have noticed, but I noticed one thing. You can shout Hamlet's soliloquy or scream Limp Bizkit lyrics, you can blare "The Star-Spangled Banner" or stomp an American flag, and no one — I mean no one — will give you the time of day. They'll look you over, but then they'll walk right on."

Simulated Reality[]

"Brooklyn. Queens. The Bronx. The suburbs. The string of distant cities beyond. All of it glowed a telling red. The East Coast megalopolis, to the horizon and beyond. Yeerk. All of it. Yeerk."

Trivia[]

  • The Familiar, published in April of 2000, features a future New York City set around the mid-to-late 2010s that has most of the skyscrapers destroyed, with an exception made for the Twin Towers, which are left standing and unscathed. In relation to this, the audiobook edition begins (after the warning against unauthorized copying) with MacLeod Andrews giving a Content Guidance advising of the book's original publication in relation to the 9/11 attacks.
