New York City was a pre-War city in the United States.


New York was the location of the United Nations headquarters before it was disbanded on July 26, 2052.[1]

In 2065, a nuclear reactor, struggling to power the population of seventeen million people, went supercritical for a period of about five minutes. While there was no explosion, the NYC incident coined the term "hot summer" for a heat-related electrical overload on nuclear systems.[2]

During the Great War, the city was affected by nuclear strikes.[3][4]



New York City is mentioned in the Fallout Bible 0 and also in a Capitol Post article about the disbanding of the United Nations in Fallout 3. It is also mentioned in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Dead Money, as well as Fallout 4 and Fallout 76, with the Statue of Liberty making a cameo appearance in the Atomic Command game. New York City is also listed as "gone" along with Washington, Boston and the rest of the East Coast on Arnold Wabash's terminal located in the Nucleus Command Center. A Boston Red Sox fan was also arrested by the Boston Police Department for standing on an overturned car and holding a defaced t-shirt with "WE BEAT NEW YORK!" written on it.
