The most populous city in the United States, New York is the country's financial, communications and fashion centre.  From shopping on 5th avenue to the annual New Year's countdown at Times Square to interesting shows from Broadway, there are many things to see and do for every taste.  For a change of pace, wander through Central Park - a massive 843 acre green space located in the centre of Manhattan or look for the historical-Waldorf Astoria hotel located at the park's perimeter.  Other must sees include the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Empire State Building - an iconic structure and New York's tallest building.

Situated on the north bank of the Hudson , where that river meets the Atlantic Ocean, the city of New York was founded by the Dutch in 1624 as a commercial trading post. Comprised of 5 boroughs ( Manhattan , Queens, Bronx, Brooklyn and Richmond ) Its population of 8.3 million (18.8 million in the metropolitan area) is composed of many different ethnic, racial and religious backgrounds. In 1850 the advent of the railways and the 1900s the construction of the subway and auto routes, contributed to the industrial and commercial development of New York . As it has become a major financial and governmental centre and is the headquarters of the United Nations it is in a unique position to exert the authority of a country, which has global influence. Rich in museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and a focus of artistic life, New York has become a world renowned centre for performance and appreciation of the arts.
