NEW YORK CITY New York is the most populous city in the United States, and the center of the New York metropolitan area. The city's 2008 estimated population exceeds 8.3 million people, and with a land area of 305 square miles (790 km2).
THE STATUE OF LIBERTY The Statue of Liberty greeted millions of immigrants as they came to America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Statue of Liberty, dedicated on October 28, 1886, is a monument commemorating the signing of the United States Declaration of Independence.
CULTURE New York carries an important role as a center of culture. The city prominently excels in its spheres of art, dance, music, opera, theatre, independent film, fashion, museums, and literature. The New York Times has won more Pulitzer Prizes for journalism than any other news publication.
CULTURE The city is the birthplace of many cultural movements, including the Harlem Renaissance in literature and visual art; abstract expressionism (also known as the New York School) in painting; and hip hop, punk, salsa, disco, freestyle, and Tin Pan Alley in music.
IMMIGRATION New York City is famous for its ethnic diversity and population density. In 2005, nearly 170 languages were spoken in the city, and 36% of its population was born outside the United States; the New York region continues to be the largest metropolitan gateway for legal immigrants to the United States.
TERRORISM The city was one of the sites of the September 11, 2001 attacks, when nearly 3,000 people died in the destruction of the World Trade Center. A new One World Trade Center (previously known as the Freedom Tower), along with a memorial and three other office towers, will be built on the site and is scheduled for completion in 2013.
PARKS New York City has over 28,000 acres (110 km2) of municipal parkland and 14 miles (23 km) of public beaches. Manhattan's Central Park is the most visited city park in the United States with 30 million visitors each year.
BROOKLYN Brooklyn is the city's most populous borough and was an independent city until 1898. Brooklyn is known for its cultural, social and ethnic diversity, an independent art scene and a distinctive architectural heritage.
MANHATTAN Manhattan is the most densely populated borough and is home to Central Park and most of the city's skyscrapers. The borough is the financial center of the city and contains the headquarters of many major corporations, the United Nations, a number of important universities, and many cultural attractions.
THE BRONX The Bronx is New York City's northernmost borough, the location of Yankee Stadium, home of the New York Yankees. It is home to the Bronx Zoo, the largest metropolitan zoo in the United States, which spans 265 acres (1.07 km2) and is home to over 6,000 animals. The Bronx is the birthplace of rap and hip hop culture.
QUEENS Queens is geographically the largest borough and the most ethnically diverse county in the United States. Historically a collection of small towns and villages founded by the Dutch, today the borough is predominantly residential and middle class.
STATEN ISLAND Staten Island is connected to Brooklyn by the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and to Manhattan by way of the free Staten Island Ferry. The Staten Island Ferry is one of the most popular tourist attractions in New York City as it provides unsurpassed views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and lower Manhattan.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the largest museums in the world.
The new Yankee Stadium has been home to the New York Yankees since 2009.
The New York City Subway is the world's largest mass transit system by number of stations and length of track.
