known as “New York, New York”,
New York City is home to the Statue of
Liberty, Times Square, the Empire State
Building, and a lot of surly American
citizens. The metropolitan area of New
York City contains about twenty one million
people, while the “inner city”
contains about eight million people. New
York City is the second largest city in
the world, right behind Tokyo. Tokyo claims
to have about over thirty four million
people, so New York City has a bit to
grow if it wants to get the title.
New York City is of course known for its
forests of skyscrapers, but most of its
buildings are not that tall. New York
City is made up of five “boroughs”;
they are Brooklyn, the Bronx, Manhattan,
Queens, and Staten Island. New York City’s
gross metropolitan product was estimated
to be $480 billion American Dollars. That
means that if the city were a nation it
would have the 16th highest gross domestic
product in the world!
hard to imagine that New York City started
out as a small Dutch settlement called
“New Amsterdam”. Located on
the southern tip of the island in the
1620s, this flyspeck would grow until
it took over everything. New York City
would see some serious times, including
the woes caused by the Civil War, two
World Wars, corruption by the Mafia, a
tide of urban crime, and the destruction
of the World Trade Center. New York City
is stronger then anyone could imagine,
and it would probably take a nuke to level
such a city.
