New York City is the location that Tom Clancy's The Division is set in. The player has the ability to free roam around New York City, specifically Midtown Manhattan and a small section of Brooklyn, and is able to search through buildings while scavenging for items. Although the city is optimized for the best gameplay, the city pertains real-life locations based in New York City, New York.

With a population of 8.5 million, New York City is the most populous city in the United States. Comprised of five separate administrative units called "boroughs" - Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island - the city has long been a global epicenter of finance, commerce, and culture.

But in recent decades, this status has made New York City a target of bitter resentment and retaliation by international terrorist organizations. To date, America's showcase city has been Ground Zero in the two most devastating terrorist strikes in modern American history: Al Queda's commercial jet attacks of September 11, 2001, and last December's devastating "Green Poison" bioweapon attack.

Quarantined after the initial surge of smallpox outbreak, New York quickly shut down its bridges and tunnels, and ushered in federal troops to help city police quell growing panic. With their airspace closed and a naval blockade cutting off all waterways, New Yorkers soon felt isolated, trapped, even abandoned. Civil unrest began to spiral out of control.
