“In New York
Concrete Jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothin’ you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let’s hear it for New York
New York, New York”
– Alicia Keys, Empire State of Mind (partial lyrics)

Over 3 million people call New York City (The Concrete Jungle, The Big Apple, Gotham, The City that Never Sleeps, The Melting Pot, Metropolis, The City So Nice They Named It Twice) home. Spread across 5 boroughs, NYC is the largest and most influential city in the United States.

When you hear Times Square, you think New Year’s Eve.
When you hear Wall Street, you think finance.
When you hear Harlem, you think jazz.
When you hear Madison Square Garden, you think concerts and sporting events.
When you hear Broadway, you think theater.
When you hear Fifth Avenue, you think shopping.
When you hear Madison Avenue, you think advertising.
When You hear Statue of Liberty, you think freedom.
We are home to some of the world’s best museums, art galleries, jazz clubs, sports teams, and theater offerings and we represent the ultimate collection of races, national origins, cultures, religions, languages, and talents.

As Frank Sinatra sings, “If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere. It’s up to you, New York, New York.”
