New York City Facts
  • New York (city) is the largest city in the United
    States and is the home of the United Nations. It
    is the center of global finance, communications,
    and business.
  • New York is composed of five separate counties
    called boroughs. Originally the city included
    only the borough of Manhattan, located on an
    island between the Hudson and East rivers. In
    1898 a number of surrounding communities were
    incorporated into the city as the boroughs of
    Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Staten Island.
    The Bronx is the only borough on the mainland of
    the United States. Manhattan and Staten Island
    are surrounded by water, while Queens and
    Brooklyn are part of Long Island.

New York City A Summation
  • All in all, my visit New York City, for about a
    week, is going to cost about 2,600.00. If I
    want to go, I had better start saving my pennies
    today. Nonetheless, the area is rich is culture
    and has plenty of sights to see. It will be
    worth the cost.
