New York City is a city located in the United States.


In 1942, a time quake originated in New York City caused by Damien Darhk aiding the Nazis in detonating an atomic bomb to cripple the Allied forces. The Legends arrived in New York and went after Darhk. After Nazis loaded the bomb into a U-boat, Rip Hunter took the Waverider underwater to collide with the atomic bomb saving New York, but scattering the Legends throughout history. After the Legends reassembled, they return to New York and are later confronted by the Justice Society of America.[1]

In 1965, Rip Hunter dropped off Henry Heywood in the Manhattan area of the city and charged him with protecting a piece of the Spear of Destiny. The Legends arrived shortly thereafter but were unable to retrieve Henry since he used his disappearance skills to vanish into the city crowd.[2]

In 2016, Dr. Nate Heywood used UFO sightings by multiple witnesses in New York to deduce that the Legends were in trouble and to go to Oliver Queen for help.[1]
