NYC, New York, Nueva York, Nova York, whatever you call it,
New York City really is the city that never sleeps.
New York City
New York City’s five boroughs (counties) are:
Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island.
There is a lot more to it, but this is what most people mean when they say “New York City” or “The City”
It’s become the New York City borough of “cool”
Over 200 languages are spoken in the most diverse place on earth
The home of salsa, hip-hop and the Yankees
The quiet borough has a maritime past and a large Italian community
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.
