I'm not entirely sure I understand your question, but here's the answer to the question I think you are asking: Urban (from the latin urbs, urbis) means having to do with a city Rural has to do with the suburbs (sub is latin for under, urbs being city - literally under the city), which is the area in the countryside, outside the city. NYC being the bustling hub of activity it is, NYC is urban.
