Mundane Status Quo
Like every other city in the world, New York has it’s fair share of crime, decay, and despair.
Struggling against this is the City Government and the officers of the NYPD. New York’s Finest are a model police force to many a city, having had most of it’s corruption cleaned out under the leadership of Mayor Giuliani in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. Mayor Bloomberg strives to continue this tradition, though, darkness has found a way of creeping back in.
Since 9/11, New York has continually been in an Orange level alert statues. This provides the mayor with quick access to the National Guard, and even the US Military, should another terrorist incident be discovered or occur.
