The Skirmish at New York City was a battle that happened during the Eye War. A major victory for Brother Eye, the skirmish was one of the most succesful attempts made by the AI at cleansing New York City from its remaining human population.
Locating a hospital used by Resistance fighters that housed old, infirm and sick human beings, Brother Eye decided against turning them into Bugs. Instead it sent out its robotic chimera, with the hellhound killing every human inside and reducing the hospital to a mound of rubble.
As Brother Eye properly predicted, the battle resulted in immediate reprisal from the Resistance resulting in the Second Skirmish at New York City.
