Reference of a big city, though not incorporating full title


Typically I know not to capitalize "the city" as it is not a proper name, however, when a protagonist uses it consistently throughout a book to reference a big city, like NYC, is it ever o.k. to capitalize any part of "city"?  I guess the question is does this word or any part of it deserve emphasis to emphasize it over other general cities?  Thanks for your help!
