    Can't wait to see what post-Doomsday New York City looks like.

    Also, do children watch SpongeBob SquarePants ITTL?

    New York City and the surrounding metro is full of craters. Majority of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, and New Jersey has sunken into the bay itself with remnant structures protruding out of the water. It won't be habitable for a century or so and may never even be rebuilt judging by the amount of radioactive ruble around the waterways and the bay. There is so signs of life. It would look like this:

    Spongebob SquarePants is butterflied away since the Stephen Hillenburg and majority of the cast are assumed to have been killed. Even if some of them survived, Hillenburg was behind the creation of everything and with so much chaos and butterflies, it may never see the light.

    I believe it was said there's nothing but an enlarged bay where New York was, outside of the very right fringes of Queens.

    Yep and to quote the wiki article:

    "Subsequent official expeditions by the Outer Lands Coast Guard in 2005 and 2009 reported that much of Manhattan Island itself no longer existed, the bombed portions covered up by the Hudson River and Upper New York Bay. Land area belonging to old Brooklyn also was covered up by water. No recognizable landmarks were noted.

    That particular part of the reports have been disputed by scientists who argue that only a massive ground burst could have caused Manhattan Island to sink. While it may be possible that parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn are flooded, the land is still there, albeit in a ruined state.

    All official and private expeditions have been done by sea, and from a considerable distance; only a direct flight over, or expeditions directly into, the area would determine once and for all the extent of damage to the five boroughs and surrounding regions.

    Portions of adjacent New Jersey, New York state and Long Island directly explored by private or official expeditions had only irradiated, scarred, destroyed land to speak for its current condition.

    The closest active towns with recognizable landmarks, forests, trees and signs of active human life are to be found in Torrington, Vermont (located in the former U.S. state of Connecticut); southeastern New York state; and the former town of Vineland in southern New Jersey, where the nation of Delmarva has commenced resettlement efforts.

    The League of Nations estimates that repopulation of the area could occur no earlier than 2060, based on conjecture. As of September 2011, mainly because of concerns regarding lethal radioactivity in the region, no known military or exploratory flights had been made over New York City. Air reconnaissance, along with further exploration and testing to determine the types of bursts in New York City and the level of radioactivity remaining there, would help determine if, and when, salvage and clean-up work could begin.

    The first music video post doomsday airs on Brazilian television to commemorate Carnival 2019. Screenshot taken from a VHS recording.
