Welcome to “The Big Apple!” This city, also known as the Capital of the World, contains within its borders close to 7.5 Million residents.

New York is home to many nationally and internationally recognized landmarks and places of interest such as the American Museum of Natural History, the Statue of Liberty, and the Broadway Theater.

What makes New York special is its contagious energy and excitement. At the center of so many industries, New York is truly on the cutting edge of civilization. While other cities are only beginning to shape a skyline, Manhattan has captured the world’s imagination as the most magical exuberating city for centuries. New York City and Broadway are synonymous; maybe that’s why some consider New York to be a spectacular stage set with the world’s most fascinating and colorful actors.

New York is, above all, a walker’s city. Along its busy streets, an endless variety of sights unfolds everywhere you go, and the character of its neighborhoods changes every few blocks. Quaint town houses stand shoulder to shoulder with sleek glass towers, gleaming gourmet supermarkets sit around the corner from dusty thrift shops, and chic bistros inhabit the storefronts of soot-smudged warehouses

In terms of the geography of NYC, it is best to imagine the Greater New York area as a main center island (Manhattan) surrounded by outer islands (the other boroughs):

Queens is located just east of Manhattan.
Brooklyn is situated to the southeast of Manhattan.
Staten Island is located southwest of Manhattan.
The Bronx is located north of Manhattan.
