Okay so, I do not live there nor have I ever even been within seeing distance of this great American metropolis. But, I can think of no better city in which to place my story. I'm stuck with the problem of writing convincingly about a city I've never set foot in. Can this be done? How would I go about doing it, by reading extensively about the Boroughs, or maybe just google street-view? Could I just make up streets and the like? This is the first time I've written a story set in a modern city, most the time it's a completely fictional place or a real city so far in the future that I have creative license over nearly everything. So any tips are greatly appreciated.
