One of my biggest fears when it comes to writing a story is getting the location/setting wrong. Almost all of my stories are set in the real world so I would pick real-life cities to be the setting but I don't want my story to take place in New York and the only thing making the area New York-ish is a character mentioning it. So, I want to now how you other writers deal the location/setting of your stories. Do you look up information on the city and wing it? Or do you not pay that much attention to the setting unless a real-life monument is involved?
