New York is a powerful metropolis with an impact that is felt worldwide. The five boroughs, consisting of Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, The Bronx, and Staten Island, each offer a unique flavor built from the city’s history and its people.
New York City is always changing and endlessly fascinating. Ever since the ports opened, immigrants have flooded in and called the place home. They changed its flavor by transplanting cultural elements from their own countries. Some 800 languages can be heard on its streets, ensuring that every one of its nearly 60 million visitors can feel at home.
New York is also a striking travel destination for vacations and cultural tours. The megacity hugs one of the world’s largest natural harbors. The Brooklyn Bridge, One World Trade Center, Times Square, the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, and Central Park are each worth the trip. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Rockefeller Center Observation Deck, the National 9/11 Memorial and Museum, and the Manhattan skyline draw travelers back again and again.
