New York (ニューヤーク Nyuu Yaaku?) is a city along the east coast of North America. During the One Year War, New York was a target for the Principality of Zeon's Earth Attack Force. Although the site of a major battle, the city was quickly overrun by the 3rd Terrestrial Mobile Division and fell into Zeon hands on March 11, UC. 0079. Much of the downtown areas of the city fell into ruins as result of the battle. After Zeon forces had captured most of North America, New York became the headquarters for Garma Zabi's North American forces.
During this period of occupation the cities Mayor Eschonbach was allowed to stay in power. Although Eschonbach hated the Zeon he decided to stay behind to watch over New York's remaining citizens. After the death of Garma Zabi, Zeon Command in New York was left in disarray. The city was liberated by Earth Federation Forces during the mopping operation in North America in the last month of the war.
