New York City is a major city in New York, United States. It is located at the mouth of the Hudson River in southeastern New York state, which is in the northeastern section of the United States. It is the most populous city in the United States.

It was mentioned in the original Scream, where it was stated Gale Weathers had come to Woodsboro from New York after the Sharon Stone stalker case. In the MTV series Scream in Season 2 during the Halloween specials, it is mentioned by Brooke Maddox as she applies to New York University during her senior year. It is the main setting for Scream VI and to its events, known as the New York Murders. It is also the home of Gale Weathers, her talk show, and home to Blackmore University.


At some point between 2011 and 2022, Dewey and Gale Riley moved to New York City so that Gale could take her turn at focusing on her career. Dewey couldn't deal with the change and, after two months, decided to leave and moved back to Woodsboro by himself. Gale remained in New York City, where she eventually became the host of her own morning show, Good Morning with Gale Weathers.
