A megacity, the biggest city in North America. Wall Street, epicenter of world trades and business, a good place to go broke and wind up living on the streets like most people. NYC is not part with Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and/or Staten Is. Although most people confused it, NYC is only Manhattan, Ghettos everywhere mostly around the edges of the island. Uptown: Harlem, Spanish Harlem notorious for crack/cocaine fiends, high crime but never reported. It is also home of grea jewish population. As you go down south on the island, there are ghettos with infamous projects with high crime rates. Midtown: Tourist center of the world, you see tourists from every part of the world who are mostly ripped off or musguided on purpose, unfortunately. Downtown (SoHo, NoHo, Tribeca, LES, The Villages, Little Italy, Chinatown and the Financial District): Dangerous but only in some parts. Little Italy filled with mobsters who work with the NYPD. Chinatown, 2nd home of the bootleg DVD's after Harlem, which is the capital of bootlegs. Also home of chinese triads and gangs. The Villages as you all might know, flamboyant people aka Homosexuals. And the financial district, where money is made and people go broke afterwards. Manhattan is a tough city to live in, as the saying goes "If you make it here in NYC, you can make it anywhere". look up the rest of the 4 boroughs for definitions.
New York City is the capital of the world.
