New York City is probably one of the furthest points in the US from a launch in North Korea. Why wouldn't they target the west coast shipping yards or oil refineries? Or the missile silos in the mid west? Or a couple other hundred things before trying to hit the hardest target possible?
If North Korea could do such a thing it would be a catalyst act. Not a first strike with thoughts of defeat and victory. NYC is pretty safe from North Korean missile strikes.
