New York

The Big Apple, the Empire State, a city so nice they named it twice, New York, New York! As the most populous city in the United States, NYC is a melting pot of culture, and its residents are characterized by their fast-paced lifestyle. It is a city where you can a snag a piping hot slice of pizza at any time of day, and where everyone – young and old of all backgrounds - rides the 24-hour subway system. Comprised of five boroughs -- Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx, & Staten Island – each offers a unique setting for the ultimate creative ebb and flow that New York coaxes from its inhabitants. Often described as the cultural, financial, and media capital of the world, New York has international influence on everything from entertainment, research, politics, tourism, and of course art and fashion.
