Speaking as a third-generation Manhattan native (didn't move to the DC area 'til late '07)... I agree, and I'd love to see a well done NYC scenery. The problem is, though, that default NYC is such a performance sinkhole - one of the worst in FSX - that any scenery designer is going to have to start from a real performance disadvantage. I wonder if it's possible to get acceptable frames/smoothness there at all. I'm pessimistic, at least until another sim comes along. Would love to simulate flights to/from New York but as a general rule I try to avoid the place in the sim, just because I can't stand the slideshow.
