What happens in Empire City, never sleeps.

Steven Universe

Empire City is a metropolis located in the Empire State, next to the state of Jersey. It was first mentioned in "Story for Steven", and it was Greg's next stop on his Mr. Universe Tour before his falling-out with Marty. In "Same Old World", Lapis and Steven flew over the city while they were exploring various locations on Earth. Steven came here with Pearl and his father Greg for a vacation in "Mr. Greg", where they sojourned at the prestigious hotel Le Hotel.
