New York

Whether it’s your first visit or your 50th, New York City is an excellent destination for an adventure. For more than a century, NYC has been one of the world’s leading business, financial and cultural. As the home of the United Nations, the city is a hub for international diplomacy. NYC is comprised of five boroughs: The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. With over 8.2 million residents within an area of 322 square miles, NYC is the second most densely populated major city in North America, behind nearby Union City, New Jersey.
The city has many neighbourhoods and landmarks known around the world. The Statue of Liberty greeted millions of immigrants as they came to America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, at Ellis Island. Wall Street, in Lower Manhattan, has been a dominant global financial centre since World War II and is home to the New York Stock Exchange. The city has been home to several of the tallest buildings in the world, including the Empire State Building and the former twin towers of the World Trade Center, which collapsed in the September 11, 2001 attacks.

New York is often called the “Big Apple,” as well as “The City that Never Sleeps,” not least because its subway system operates around the clock and because many neighbourhoods in Manhattan, such as Times Square, are busy at all hours.
