to New York
My Home Town

New York is a city of many cultures, a melting pot, so to speak. It is truly the city that never sleeps. This is a picture of lower Manhattan. The World Trade Center is in the background. The New York Stock Exchange which is located at Wall and Broad Streets is the worlds largest stock exchange, trading hundreds of millions of shares each day. Also located in lower Manhattan is the Federal Reserve Bank as well as many other banking, insurance and brokerage institutions. 

New York is one of the world's leading commercial, financial and cultural centers. New York City is subdivided into five boroughs that are coextensive with 5 counties of New York State. The boroughs are Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island. Almost all of the Bronx is situated on the mainland, but the other boroughs are situated on, or comprise, islands: Brooklyn and Queens are located on the western end of Long Island. Staten Island is an entire island by itself. Manhattan is primarily made up of Manhattan Island, but also includes a small part on the Bronx mainland. 

New York has a population of almost 8 million people. The largest urban population in the United States. 

New York City has two major airports; John F. Kennedy Int'l Airport (for both domestic and international flights) and LaGuardia (primarily for domestic flights), both located in Queens. The city is also served by Newark Int'l Airport located in Newark, New Jersey. 

Also located in New York City are Radio City Music Hall, The Theatre District, The United Nations, Central Park, The Empire State building, The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and many other notable landmarks. 

New York has some of the world's finest restaurants. You can get just about any kind of cuisine here. Also located in lower Manhattan are New York's world famous Chinatown and Little Italy. I say, if you can't get it in New York, you can't get it anywhere in the world.
