Ultimate New York By Night
New York City
From 1929 to 1989, New York City was controlled by the Sabbat, the enemies of the Camarilla. During the 1990’s, the sects waged a war over control of the city, first neighborhood by neighborhood, then borough by borough . In 1999, from their war base in the Park Slope Armory the Camarilla Generals Parker and Espanada launched a series of withering attacks against the Sabbat stronghold in the tunnels below Grand Central Station. The Sabbat Regent, a Follower of Set named Jafar Abdel-Rahman, was dramatically assassinated when he attempted to escape to Egypt, and the Camarilla took control of New York City. Strangely, neither General Parker or General Espanada was promoted to Prince, as is the custom. They were instead given ownership of the Bronx and Manhattan respectively. Michael Goldman, a popular Ventrue business mogul, was personally chosen and installed as Prince of the city by the Camarilla leadership in Switzerland. To solidify his authority, the ancients also engineered Goldman as the mortal Mayor of New York in 2000. There have been no major Sabbat attacks since the final cleansing in 1999.
