The largest city in the United States and one of the pre-eminent metropolises in the world, New York City is a major financial, cultural, entertainment, media, and commercial centre almost unparalleled on the global stage. A major destination for business and pleasure alike, this bustling metropolitan hub of nearly 20 million residents is the prototypical modern city and always an exciting place to visit.
Founded as New Amsterdam by Dutch colonists in the 1620s, New York City has grown into the most densely populated American city and one of the world’s most linguistically and ethnically diverse urban areas. Located on one of the world’s largest natural harbours, New York’s skyline is famous for its multitude of towering skyscrapers, in particular the Art Deco Empire State Building and Chrysler Building. Many of these skyscrapers rise above Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange, the heart of the American and indeed the world financial system. Many other corporations, media companies, and retail giants have offices, studios, stores, and facilities in New York City as well.
Visitors to New York have a wide variety of attractions and experiences to choose from in “the City that Never Sleeps”. New York’s culinary options are among the finest in the world, with many Michelin-starred restaurants as well as a multitude of eclectic and unique dining choices across the city. New York is a live theatre mecca as well, with blockbuster Broadway musical productions clustered at theatres around vibrant Times Square in addition to compelling and often star-studded off-Broadway shows. The manicured landscape architecture of Manhattan’s prime green space, Central Park, offers a place of naturalistic respite among the bustling avenues.
Major cultural institutions along Central Park’s Museum Mile include the American Museum of Natural History, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Guggenheim Museum; the Museum of Modern Art, Madison Square Garden, the Lincoln Center for the Arts, Radio City Music Hall, Harlem’s Apollo Theatre, and Carnegie Hall also attract millions of visitors each year.
Outside of Manhattan, guests of New York City can enjoy the newly fashionable borough of Brooklyn (connected to Manhattan by the iconic Brooklyn Bridge) or catch a New York Yankees baseball game at one of the sport’s shrines, Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. A short ferryboat trip from Battery Park at the southern tip of Lower Manhattan will take you to the world-recognized symbol of American democracy, the Statue of Liberty, as well as Ellis Island, once the entry point for millions of new immigrants to the country and now a fascinating museum.
New York City is served by three major airports: LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy Airports within the city’s boundaries and Newark Liberty International Airport across the Hudson River in New Jersey.
