New York is part of the Twenty-First Nome and is the location of Brooklyn House. Carter and Sadie Kane are taken here by their uncle, Amos, after their father attempts to summon Osiris and subsequently destroys the Rosetta Stone. Magicians, the House of Life and Egyptian gods generally tend to avoid Manhattan as it tends to have other "problems" by way of the presence of Olympus atop the Empire State Building. This is supposed to be a reference to the Percy Jackson series and the Greek/Roman gods that reside there. It is suggested that while Egyptian gods grow weak if they venture into Manhattan Greek/Roman deities have little or no problam going into Brooklyn (as seen in The Last Olympian during the Battle of the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel).
