New York City (JOBS), the largest city in the United States,
is made up of five boroughs: Manhattan, Queens,
and Staten Island. It is the home of the United
Nations and a major center of global finance,
communications, and business. New York City is spectacular
for so many reasons: its high residential density;
its extraordinarily diverse population; its forest
of hundreds of skyscrapers; its thriving central business
district; its extensive
public transportation system; and its more than
400 distinct neighborhoods. The city's concert houses,
museums, galleries, and theaters constitute an ensemble
of cultural richness rivaled by few cities. In 2000,
the population of the city of New York was 8,008,278;
the population of the metropolitan region was 18,323,002.
New York has a temperate climate with annual precipitation
of 47 inches (119 centimeters) per year. The city is
not immune to an occasional dump of snow in the winter.
New York City is at about the same latitude as Naples,
Italy, but the weather isn't quite the same: the temperature
averages at 28F (-2C) in January and 76F (24C) in July,
with the Atlantic Ocean helping to moderate weather
extremes in the city.
Those who like museums and the performing arts will
be in seventh heaven in New York. The city contains
famous museums like the Metropolitan
Museum of Art, the American
Museum of the Moving Image, the Guggenheim,
Museum of Natural History, and the Cloisters!
And then there's Broadway
(and Off Broadway, and Off Off Broadway), where you
can enjoy any type of theatrical genre imaginable.
Catch a performance at the Lincoln
Center for the Performing Arts, with its 12 resident
companies, including the New
York City Ballet, the New
York Philharmonic, and the New
York City Opera.
And while the sports enthusiast may cringe at such
a cornucopia of artistic opportunities, they also very
well know they'll be quite happy, as they'll have the
York Yankees, the New
York Mets, the New
York Rangers, New
York Islanders (Uniondale), the New
York Knicks, and New
