New York City is the most populous city in the United States. It serves as one of the main settings of The Dark Tower Series.



King states in the foreword to Song of Susannah that he takes several liberties geographically when describing locations in New York City. Previously, it was in the foreword of The Waste Lands, when he switched places several times during Jake's new life (the life he got when Roland prevented Jack Mort from killing him). In the third book, some streets were in different places of the real New York.
