All around good stats and brings real flexibility and stability for the city plots.
Certainly, one of the best cards for location control.

I think all new City plot cards should include flavor text that says "Good thing this isn't a River plot, then you might have to use them..."

Now when building a city deck, if it has Shadows, and either Maester or Army characters, I will be up to 6 City plots I would actually want to use!

You could "discard" The Red Keep (TftRK) which just puts it back into shadows. Pay the 1 g during next shadows action to bring back out.
I think I'll use this as my single other City plot along with my At The Gates. Being able to get rid of a cost 1 location is great, like Massey's Hook for example which is currently very popular in my meta and sometimes the location that pyromancer's cache is on.
This is especially a useful plot in a Melee game. There is little draw back here unless you have locations you just can't give up.
"each player" means also the controller of the plot, right?
It does. I've still had much use of this plot and I recommend you trying it out either way if you're considering running it :)
If I have no "City" plots in my discard pile when this is revealed, would that mean any location of zero cost can be dicared from play?
Yup, that's exactly what it means.
Thank you!
Do you name 1 location? and if any opponent has it they discard it, or do you name a location for each opponent?

You choose a location for each player to discard.
What is the proper understanding here? For me, the composition is like:
Subject: choose and discard 1 LOCATION

But the phrase "controlled by each player" only pertains WHERE TO CHOOSE 1 LOCATION..

If the words "by each player" is that who is picking, I think thats just wrong. Because it does not make sense.

I think its like this?
choose and discard 1 location controlled (by whom?) by each player

Not like this:

Each player must choose and discard 1 location they control
