First of all, the laws of eruv are complex and I do not know them well.

There are eruvin up in various parts of manhattan, but they cannot enclose an area with more than a certain number of residents, so there could not be one around the whole city. Also, an eruv must enclose a "residential area" so central park cannot be included in an eruv. But there is one on the Upper West Side, Upper East, Downtown. It sort of demarcates a neighborhood in a way and creates a communal area.
