New York was a city along the east coast of North America. Prior to the Zentraedi Holocaust, the city's mayor, who had a lot of influence with certain figures in the United Earth Government, commissioned an experimental barrier defense system, that was able shield several areas (notably the Carnegie Hall) from significant damage the reflex bombardment by the Zentraedi Grand Fleet. However, the barrier broke down on other parts of the city, resulting in massive damage and loss of life. The city was rebuilt following the Reconstruction Era, and served as a cultural capital well until the Invid Invasion.
Carnegie Hall was a concert venue in Midtown Manhattan in New York City, United States, located at 881 Seventh Avenue, occupying the east stretch of Seventh Avenue between West 56th Street and West 57th Street, two blocks south of Central Park.
Designed by architect William Burnet Tuthill and built by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie in 1891, it is one of the most prestigious venues in the world for both classical music and popular music. Carnegie Hall had its own artistic programming, development, and marketing departments, and presents about 250 performances each season. It was also rented out to performing groups.
Carnegie Hall had 3,671 seats, divided among its three auditoriums. The hall was restored following the Zentraedi Holocaust.
Statue of LibertyEdit
The Statue of Liberty (Liberty Enlightening the World; French: La Liberté éclairant le monde) was a colossal neoclassical sculpture on Liberty Island in the middle of New York Harbor, in Manhattan, New York City.
The statue, designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and dedicated on October 28, 1886, was a gift to the United States from the people of France. The statue was of a robed female figure representing Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom, who bore a torch and a tabula ansata (a tablet evoking the law) upon which was inscribed the date of the American Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776. A broken chain lay at her feet. The statue was an icon of freedom and of the United States: a welcoming signal to immigrants arriving from abroad.
During the Third Robotech War, Scott Bernard and his group made a quick stop over for supplies at Invid-occupied New York. Lancer, in the guise of Yellow Dancer, recalled having been to city and visiting Carnegie Hall during his childhood, prior to migrating to deep space. He always dreamed that he would one day perform in the famed concert venue.
Meanwhile, Prince Corg tracked down the resistance fighters in the city, and against Sera's orders, began to purge the entire human population. Scott's and his freedom fighters launched a counterattack, and took out the main hive in the city. The Invid attack halted, Scott's group leave, but not before flying by the Statue of Liberty.
