New York City is a fanmade character for Hetalia: Axis Powers. She represents the City of New York, New York, the most populous city in the United States of America. Her human name is Alexandra Selena Jones York, or Alex York for short.


Alex looks like Alex Russo. A lot like Alex Russo. She has the same black hair as Alex, she has her mischievous hazel eyes too. In fact, this Alex has been mistaken for the other Alex more than a few times because not only do they look alike, they are also wizards. Alex wears the first top, pants, and shoes that she lays her hands on. She doesn't subscribe to her half-sister's "fashion ala Blair Jones" because as a Level 1 CSI, Alex gets to swim in the Big Apple's sewers and Dumpsters, and the smell wouldn't go well with any fashion statement.

Alex has two scars on her chest, a constant reminder of the events of September 11, 2001.

Personality and Interests

Alex is calm and methodical, but when she gets angry, she gets angry. The last person to see her become angry disappeared immediately after, and so no one has an account of what happened.

Alex likes the New York Yankees, New York Mets, and the New York Knicks, and she has a secret crush on Stephon Marbury (at least before he went to Boston). She likes Times Square, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, and the World Trade Center (before it was destroyed).

After the successful ditching of US Airways Flight 1549, she developed an interest for air accidents and incidents. (She hated air crashes after 9/11)

Alex's half-sister. They like each other but when it comes to fashion, they disagree. Once, when Blair asked Alex why she doesn't wear the clothes that she gave her, she invited her to an investigation. Needless to say, Blair didn't ask again.

United States of America (Alfred F. Jones)

Main article: America

Alex's second stepfather. Alfred took her away from Arthur Kirkland (England) in 1783, who traded her away from the Netherlands in the 1600s for Suriname (Dutch Guiana). She mastered her powers under Alfred and Arthur's supervision.


  • Alex's birthday is listed as September 3 or February 2, although she admits that she doesn't remember after all those years. However, she does know that either one of those dates is her real birthday.
  • Alex's full name comes from her favorite character in Wizards of Waverly Place Alex Russo and her actress Selena Gomez, while her surname York comes from New York.
  • Since the UN Headquarters is located in her home, Alex is fluent in almost every language in the world, but her primary languages are still English and Dutch.
  • Alex's favorite fruit is the apple (for obvious reasons).
