  • Also, we don't normally say "Where he was born in", just "where he was born."

If you use "where", you don't need any preposition, although you need them when using "which" in that sentence. Its corrected versions are

  • New York City, where Jordan was born, is in the United States of America.

  • New York City, which Jordan was born in, is in the United States of America.

  • New York City, in which Jordan was born, is in the United States of America.
