New York is a state in the Northeastern region of the United States. New York is the 27th most extensive, the 3rd most populous, and the 7th most densely populated of the 50 United States. New York is bordered by New Jersey and Pennsylvania to the south, and by Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont to the east. The state has a maritime border with Rhode Island east of Long Island, as well as an international border with the Canadian provinces of Ontario to the west and north, and Quebec to the north. The state of New York is often referred to as New York State to distinguish it from the city of New York.
In the movie, New York is never seen in destruction, but there is a scene when President Wilson is delivering a national address about the catastrophe happening all over the world and it shows groups of people watching the address in Times Square. Although not shown nor mentioned, New York City was most likely destroyed, along with the other major cities in the US, either from the megatsunami or from the Yellowstone ash cloud.
