New York City, NYC, New York, the City, Nueva York, Nova York, whatever you call it, New York City really is the city that never sleeps.
New York City has been Latin since the first immigrant, Juan Rodriguez arrived in 1613. He was a multilingual African Portuguese sailor from Santo Domingo (now the Dominican Republic) on a Dutch ship, who decided to stay instead of shipping on to the Netherlands.

International New York City
It’s a small world after all. Everybody is here.
This is New York
New York is a great diversity of interlocking purposes. We are not the biggest human city, but we are the world’s most diverse human city.
Everyone from everywhere is here. The best and worst of every good and bad idea are here.
If you look at how people live around the world, New York City shouldn’t function at all. Humanity’s investment in petty differences is too great. But on most days, New York does work, and it works surprisingly well.
Perhaps the hurry that is necessary to survive here forces us to let go of our baggage, to drop our differences. When you do that, the only thing left is our common humanity.
This is my city. This is your city. This is New York.
