Hi there! I'm writing a near-future novel. In my novel, transportation has been capped in cities in an effort to reduce carbon emmisions, save for emergency vehicles, government, and the excesively wealthy perhaps. People walk and bike everywhere otherwise (and take trains/subways). I want to set the novel in NYC because I am from there, but I wonder if it's cliche to have a future novel in NYC? Do others feels it's overdone? I have also lived in Charleston, SC and toyed around with the idea of setting it there. As a small city, the bann of teansportation could work, but my MC family and friends are blends of Moroccan and Asian and Charleston just did not have that kind of diversity. It's in the future, but it's only 40 or so years in the future, I don't think that is much time to turn a city fully multi-ethnic. Thoughts? Ps. Sorry for any spelling/grammar errors, my ipad backspace key is not working!!
