Regis Philbin, the only human being ever to have been named after a high school, is perhaps New York City's most famous resident.

New York City, officially the City of New York, is the most populous, important, culturally vital, interesting, amusing, crime-ridden, scenic, and wonderful city in the United States and the most densely populated major city in whatever that continent is it's apparently attached to.

The city is at the center of politics, entertainment, and culture, and is one of the world's major metropolises with a virtually unrivaled collection of huge apartments, police detectives, Crime Scene Investigation teams, wacky neighbors, and silly hijinks. It is also home to the global headquarters of everything worthwhile.

Located in the state of New York, named after the city, New York City has a population of 8.1 million, half of whom star in sitcoms, with the other half starring in law enforcement roles, within an area of 321 square miles (approximately 830 km²). It is at the heart of the New York Metropolitan Area, most of which is only relevant in shows about the Mafia. The city proper consists of five boroughs: Manhattan, where important stuff happens, The Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens, where occasional stuff happens, and Staten Island, which is used only in punchlines. Each of these boroughs, except for Staten Island, is home to at least a million actors and screenwriters and would each be among the nation's largest cities if considered independently.

Nicknamed "the Big Apple," the city attracts large numbers of immigrants from over 180 countries, as well as people from all over the United States, who have seen it on TV and think it would be great to live there, or anyway in a show set there. The city is also currently notable for having the lowest crime rate among major American cities, except on NBC on Wednesday nights.
