Hello Wesley X ! Welcome to the Community,
Please read the following article about Advanced Location Options
" Advanced location targeting options allow you to reach:
- People in, searching for, or viewing pages about your targeted location (default)
- People in your targeted location
- People searching for or viewing pages about your targeted location"
If you want "only people who are in new york city to see your ads" , select the second option because the default option triggers Ads if the search term includes your location name.

If you do not find Advanced Location options, my guess is that you have a "Standard" campaign. It is explained here what features lack from this type of campaign, and Advanced Location options is one of them : link
To use the Advanced Location options, just change the type of campaign to "All features campaign"
It is not advisable in your case to use radius , because you want people from a City to see the Ads.
Please read more about the targeting options from here : link
When you expand the "Compare location target types...." you can see the for the 3rd option "Radius..", the 3rd column "Types of businesses that might not benefit is : A business that only wants to reach specific cities, regions, or countries."
