Are the fact that these schools are in NYC factored in to their rank?

There is no binary "NYC/not NYC" metric in the USNWR calculations.

then it seems like NYU/CLS are slightly devalued by the ranking system; being in NYC has to be a huge boon to employment prospects that should be accounted for by TLS'ers.

Uh, what? If that is in fact a "huge boon," then it's already accounted for by USNWR--there's a weight assigned to employment scores (though perhaps that should be more heavily weighted). If there were an extra "in NYC" criterion, that'd be double counting.

proximity to NYC accounts for like 80% of the USNWR ranking dood

This is dumb, a major flame, or bad pro-T6 trolling. CLS and NYU are already ranked extremely highly. As another poster said, their ranking contains their employment data -- should that be weighted more heavily? Probably, but it wouldnt change their rank -- and subsequently it ranks any factors implicated by/impacting employment data.

Its not real. They dont average.
