NEW YORK CITY
New York, U.S.A.
AMERICA'S WORLD CITY
Welcome to...The World. It's New York City. It's made up of the five boroughs: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island.
It's one of the most influential cities in the world, a center of business, culture, politics, education, and entertainment. Truly a 24-hour city, and a wildly diverse universe unto itself. In fact it's a universe of 8 million inhabitants, making it the most highly populated city in the U.S. Ask almost anyone who hasn't been, and you'll find that it tops their list of places to see. Many imagine the skyscrapers of Manhattan or the elegant brownstones of Brooklyn, but a journey into all five boroughs shows the many and varied environments existing in this "greatest city in the world". The nicknames never cease, nor do the crowds of tourists and transplants seeking for themselves a piece of that most famous pie. MANHATTAN Headed to The City? Of all the boroughs, the moniker, The City, is reserved for Manhattan. The all-night lights of Times Square, the star power of Broadway, the dazzling heights of the Empire State Building, the honking yellow cabs, Central Park, skyscrapers, chic shops of Madison Avenue and the jazz clubs of Greenwich Village...this is what Manhattan is known for. It's an island overflowing with workers who trek in from the outer boroughs, tourists who come in from every country in the world, and residents who make their homes in mega-apartment complexes, townhouses, lofts and small buildings. It's dense, and offers the epitome of urban living. BROOKLYN Once a far second to Manhattan in cultural significance and tourism, Brooklyn has emerged to a new and hungry crowd as the hot place to live.There was a time when most tourists walked across the Brooklyn Bridge simply for the iconic Manhattan views that it offered, while much of the borough itself remained an after-thought. Have things changed! Historically it's home to the largest black population in the United States, including many from Caribbean and African nations. Brooklyn also boasts the largest number of churches of any city in the country. Artists and writers and others of the creative class have always been there. But recent booms in neighborhoods like Fort Greene and Williamsburg brought on an epic opening of the floodgates, and the rush to own one of the iconic Brooklyn brownstones brought a rise in real estate, with prices competing with many in Manhattan. With Prospect Park, Brooklyn's own version of Central Park, plus beautiful tree-lined residential blocks, and a myriad of cultural institutions, endless signature restaurants and boutiques, Brooklyn offers a unique and inspiring change of pace. QUEENS The melting pot of all melting pots is Queens. Point your finger almost anyplace on the globe and you'll likely find someone from that place living in Queens. Why? Because this city holds the honor of being more ethnically and culturally diverse than anyplace in the world. In fact, over half of the residents are foreign born. Hop off the 7 train and soak up the sounds, colors and tastes of India and South Asia in the neighborhood of Jackson Heights. It's a borough with lots of space, the largest in size, so large that they built JFK and LaGuardia Airports there. So if you're flying into New York City you're most likely landing in Queens. Unlike much of NYC, Queens has lots of free-standing homes, and larger apartments than those found in most of the city. And with attractions like Citi Field (home of the NY Mets), Flushing Meadows Corona Park, and world- renowned art at the PS.1 Contemporary Art Center, Queens really is the queen of NYC. THE BRONX A surprisingly urban greenspace, The Bronx is known for sprawling apartment communities, the Rocky films, and that accent, the Bronx is the nation's third most heavily populated city. With attractions like the Bronx Zoo, America's largest in fact, and Pelham Bay Park, NYC's largest public park, it has a surprising amount of greenery and space amidst the density. It's also home to the beautiful New York Botanical Gardens, a virtual Garden of Eden in the metropolis that is NYC. Sports fans crowd into Yankee Stadium for baseball and Major League Soccer games. Unlike Manhattan's shrinking Little Italy known for blocks of tourist restaurants, Bronx's Little Italy remains a real neighborhood, a thriving business and residential district, offering a taste of what Bronx locals call the real Little Italy. The Bronx has impressive schools like Fordham University and Lehman College, and a thriving arts and education mission via the Bronx Museum of the Arts. Housing in the borough is much cheaper than that in most of NYC, and there is enough variety to appeal to almost anyone's tastes. STATEN ISLAND And the suburb in The Big Apple is Staten Island. It's easy to forget that you're still in NYC when you're spreading your wings on Staten Island. This borough offers a lot more room to breathe than anywhere else in the city. That's because it's NYC's least populated borough. With deeply-rooted, primarily Italian and Irish communities, you'll find lots of family ties on this island. Newcomers are drawn by lower rents and closeness to lower Manhattan, just a twenty-five minute ferry ride away. And free-standing homes, more affordable rents, parks and those family ties attract many seeking a less bustling life in the five boroughs. It's home to everyone's favorite, and still free, ferry. Tourists hop on the Staten Island Ferry in lower Manhattan for the famous round-trip with a view of the city's favorite lady, The Statue of Liberty. And if you've got pizza on your mind, unbeknownst to most, some of the oldest and most authentic, aka best, pizza is right on the island. All of this makes up the great world city, New York!
