A city in the county of Yorkshire (in the UK) and was for a very long time a very important city (from its humble beginings as a roman fort, to the industrial revoloution)

But during the industrial revoloution, what were previously smaller cities and towns took a bigger role due to the fact there were more mills and factories in places like Bradford and Leeds.

One thing however, that York still holds on to is a major tourism industry. Despite having too many tourists pronouncing Gillygate wrong (it is pronounced Jillygate), it is an awesome city.
York is where I was born.
