They then must find the crash location, where Monkey hopes to find his motorcycle, which he believes will be the fastest way to get Trip back to her home village, 300 miles away. To do so they must cross New York and face Mechs that have been laying dormant for years.
The Slaver ship crashes through the torch of the Statue of Liberty. Chapter 2 takes place mostly in and around Grand Central Station. They must cross The Brooklyn Bridge to get closer to the crashed slaver ship. It would seem they are actually traveling east in NYC to get to the crashed ship. Since Grand Central Station is in Manhattan and they must cross The Brooklyn Bridge. So the ship actually crashed in Brooklyn.
