Allie it's set in Tulsa, Oklahoma in the movie and the author was somewhat involved in the movie, so I'll just go with that. Dallas Winston (Dally) moved from New York to Tulsa and it says something about that in the beginning of the book.
Tara S.E Hinton wrote The Outsiders when she was 17 and was inspired by the gangs in her own school in Tulsa Oklahoma. I believe the book is set there although I don't think it is actually stated in the book.
KT For some reason, I thought it was New York. Probably because New York is mentioned quite a bit. But, apparently, it is Oklahoma.
