The City Of New York, often called New York City or simply New York is the most populous city in the United States. Connie arrived here in A Wonderful American Journey with Thomas and Connie, on her way to a Day Out with Thomas event. Thomas once visited the city during his journey around the world, where he travelled on a metropolitan line. When he came out of it, he was lifted by a crane who was building a skyscraper. From 2014 to 2016 a Thomas Balloon float was used for the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade held every year in New York.
