Lost in NYC?

As if you didn’t know by now, New York, often called New York City (or simply NYC, or even The Big Apple,) is the most populous city in the United States, located at the southern tip of New York State on one of the world’s largest natural harbors. This is no news for any alert traveler, as it’s no doubt it’s a place that everyone wants to visit. And, in fact, 2.4 million visitors typically do that exactly each year. That’s quite a pilgrimage.

As a refresher though, the city comprises five boroughs, each of which is unique, coextensive with a respective county. New York is a global center of finance and commerce, culture and technology, entertainment and media, academics and scientific output and the arts and fashion.

And, as home to the headquarters of the United Nations, is an important center for international diplomacy. NYC is the center of the world’s principal metropolitan economy. In summary, you won’t get bored if you aim yourself to The Big Apple. You may simply run out of time. Or, run out of steam.
