New York City consists of five boroughs, Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island. The populations of the five contribute to approximately 8 million people total. Manhattan is the heart of it all, an eight mile long island which, besides central park (setting of Alone in the Dark 5) is a sprawling metropolis. Manhattan is a hub of restaurants, business, and for the most part, high living. However, there is also a high poverty rate in NYC, contrasting the glamorous lifestyle. NYC makes an ideal game setting, as its grand architectures and hundreds of different locations provide a dynamic experience of any person.
