There the laws of physics are the usual ones without gravity.

Gravity is the curvature of spacetime. To define the concept of curvature do we need to evaluate at least one neighborhood of point P? Is general relativity local?

An infinitesimally small neighborhood suffices for that purpose, so yes, it's local.To define the concept of curvature do we need to evaluate at least one neighborhood of point P? Is general relativity local?
