On 1 May 2053, the borough of Manhattan was completely destroyed by nuclear weapons during the opening minutes of World War III, killing millions of people.

In later centuries, the radiation is presumably removed from the area, and the borough resettled, with much reconstruction of the destroyed landmarks.
