Steven The 87th Precinct is part of an imaginary city with some resemblance to New York City, generally just referred to as "The City." Its boroughs include Isola, Majesta, Calm's Point, Bethtown and Riverhead. In terms of locations within the City, very little really seems to correspond to locations within the real NYC's five boroughs, although the population makeup, as seen in the various novels, is roughly similar in its ethnic clustering. The various media adaptations have mostly moved the action to real world locations -- New York City, Boston, Japan -- although the 1961-62 TV series named the setting Isola, the equivalent to Manhattan, rather than using the generic "the City" as McBain did.
