New York City, often referred to simply as New York and nicknamed The Big Apple, is a location in the state of New York, which lies on the east coast of the United States of America.
In 1989, New York City was considered an urban war zone; conflicts between local gangs and police reached unprecedented levels of violence. Several Predators also arrived in New York City in 1989, as well.
- Predator 2 was originally going to be set in New York City, but was moved to Los Angeles to make filming both easier and cheaper. The scene where the City Hunter scales the Eastern Columbia Building was originally intended to use the Chrysler Building in New York.
