ABOUT NEW YORK
The most populous city in the United States, anchoring the largest metropolitan area in the world, New York is a global center for the arts, medicine, live theater, communications, food, finance, music, fashion, and culture. New York is home to numerous world-class museums, unique attractions , Broadway theaters, endless dining options, diverse nightlife, and infinite shopping possibilities. It is also home to nearly 9 million people, collectively the most ethnically diverse population in the world, with an estimated 800 native languages spoken among its inhabitants.
Often referred to as New York City, to distinguish it from the state in which it resides, or just “the city” to locals, New York comprises hundreds of distinct neighborhoods spread among the city’s five geographic boroughs — Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island. Manhattan, the 23-square-mile island lying between the Hudson and East Rivers, is the business, tourism, and entertainment center of the city, as well as home to numerous quiet residential neighborhoods. In its center lies the 843-acre Central Park, home to walking and biking paths, a lake, thick woods, sports fields, an ice-skating rink, zoo, nature sanctuary, carousel, outdoor theater, a castle, and the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir. Fun fact: Central Park is the most filmed park in the world!
