After install gnome-maps today, I opened it and it immediately displayed
a map of New York City, presumably since gnome-maps looked up my city
location, which I entered in Anaconda, found New York, and displayed a
pin over New York City.

The first time I opened GNOME Maps (i.e. right now) I too saw New York City, and I'm in Plymouth, UK (about 5337km away). My system is configured to use Europe/London at the time zone. Could your home city selection be a red herring with regard to GNOME Maps?
