The largest city
in the United States
as well as the financial capital of the world (followed by Tokyo
), famous for its vast skyline. Downtown Manhattan
contains more infastructure and office space per square foot of land than anywhere else. With a population of over 8 million, New York City is one of the most diverse
cities worldwide, with people representing nearly every existant race
, sexual orientation
, political party, and nationality at any given moment. New York's high-culture environment and unique diversity contribute to New York's cosmopolitan
atmosphere and may account for New York having the lowest crime rate among the largest 25 cities in the United States. The New York city Urban Area
(including parts of New York
, New Jersey
, and Connecticut
is the world's largest, consisting of over 22 million people. New York continues to amaze inspire artists, students, immigrants, patriots, and tourists. If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.
I'm going into New York City to view an exhibition at the Museum of National History, seeing a Broadway play, and going clubbing afterwards.
