New York City facts
New York City (also referred to as "New York", "NYC", "The Big Apple", or just "the City" by locals), is the most populous city in the United States. It lies at the mouth of the Hudson River in the southernmost part of the state, which is part of the Mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. The city spans a land area of 305 square miles (790 km2). New York City has a population of approximately 8.2 million people. The New York Metropolitan Area, which spans lower New York, northern New Jersey, and southwestern Connecticut, has a population of 18.7 million, making it the largest metropolitan area in the U.S. As of 2007, it was 5th in the world, after Tokyo, São Paulo, Mexico City and Seoul.
New York City is a centre for media, culture, food, fashion, art, research, finance, and trade. It has one of the largest and most famous skylines on earth, dominated by the iconic Empire State Building. New York City is the business and financial capital of the world, and many leading national and international corporations have their headquarters there. The city's financial centre, Wall Street, is the world's leading centre of finance and the home of the nation's most important securities market, the New York Stock Exchange. The same area contains the nation's second largest exchange, the American Stock Exchange, and several smaller exchanges, including the Commodity Exchange, which deals in metals, rubber, and hides; the Coffee, Sugar, and Cocoa Exchange; the Cotton Exchange; the Futures Exchange; the New York Mercantile Exchange; and the International Monetary Market.
In addition, in the vicinity of Wall Street are many of the nation's biggest banks, trust companies, insurance companies, and brokerage houses. Because of its favourable location, excellent port facilities, and large population, New York City is the leading wholesale and retail trade centre in the United States. New York is also a leader in communications, the hotel and restaurant business, building construction, and manufacturing. New York City has reinvented itself economically in the last half of the 20th century. In 1945 it was the busiest port and the most important manufacturing centre in the world. Since that time, it has lost more than 800,000 of its 1 million factory jobs. Although more than 100,000 longshoremen once worked its docks, fewer than 10,000 did so in the late 1990s. Activity on the waterfront was decimated by a combination of intense competition from other U.S. ports and technological changes such as containerization, which allow ships to be loaded and unloaded by far fewer workers.
Between 1955 and 1980, the city also lost jobs as corporations left the city, moving to nearby suburbs or to other parts of the country. Companies found that they could cut the cost of office rentals, wages, and taxes that they had paid in the city. Since 1980, however, New York has experienced an economic boom, particularly in new service industries that provide services to individuals and businesses in such fields as finance and banking, health services, education, restaurants, and sales. It has also solidified its reputation as a financial, cultural, and communications centre. New York City’s banks and law firms have prospered.
The metropolitan region’s well-paid managerial class has worked to integrate the world economy with that of the United States, through the influence of the city’s stock market, investment banks, and currency traders. New York’s stock market, the largest in the world, has a profound influence on finances around the world. In addition, the city’s investment banks are extremely influential in establishing the value of foreign firms and currencies. By the end of the 1990s, every important financial institution in the world had a presence in New York, and Wall Street had become synonymous with high finance. Manhattan is the headquarters of the nation’s television and radio networks, making it the heart of the mass media in the United States. The headquarters of most of the nation’s major publishing houses and advertising agencies are also clustered in Manhattan’s Midtown.
the Bronx Neighborhoods
Notable Bronx neighborhoods include the South Bronx; Little Italy on Arthur Avenue in the Belmont section; and Riverdale.
Main article: East Bronx
(Bronx Community Boards 9 [south central], 10 [east], 11 [east central] and 12 [north central] )
The neighborhood of Co-op City is the largest cooperative housing development in the world.
East of the Bronx River, the borough is relatively flat and includes four large low peninsulas, or 'necks,' of low-lying land which jut into the waters of the East River and were once saltmarsh: Hunts Point, Clason's Point, Screvin's Neck (Castle Hill Point) and Throgs Neck. The East Bronx has older tenement buildings, low income public housing complexes, and multifamily homes, as well as single family homes. It includes New York City's largest park: Pelham Bay Park along the Westchester-Bronx border.
Neighborhoods include: Clason's Point, Harding Park, Soundview, Castle Hill, Parkchester (Board 9); Throggs Neck, Country Club, City Island, Pelham Bay, Edgewater Park, Co-op City (Board 10); Westchester Square, Van Nest, Pelham Parkway, Morris Park (Board 11); Williamsbridge, Eastchester, Baychester, Edenwald and Wakefield (Board 12).
City Island and Hart Island
Main articles: City Island, Bronx and Hart Island, New York
The sea is a part of everyday life in City Island.
(Bronx Community Board 10)
City Island is located east of Pelham Bay Park in Long Island Sound and is known for its seafood restaurants and private waterfront homes. City Island's single shopping street, City Island Avenue, is reminiscent of a small New England town. It is connected to Rodman's Neck on the mainland by the City Island Bridge.
East of City Island is Hart Island, which is uninhabited and not open to the public. It once served as a prison and now houses New York City's Potter's Field or pauper's graveyard for unclaimed bodies.
Main article: West Bronx
Grand Concourse at East 165th Street
(Bronx Community Boards 1 to 8, progressing roughly from south to northwest)
The western parts of the Bronx are hillier and are dominated by a series of parallel ridges, running south to north. The West Bronx has older apartment buildings, low income public housing complexes, multifamily homes in its lower income areas as well as larger single family homes in more affluent areas such as Riverdale and Fieldston. It includes New York City's fourth-largest park: Van Cortlandt Park along the Westchester-Bronx border. The Grand Concourse, a wide boulevard, runs through it, north to south.
(Bronx Community Boards 7 [between the Bronx and Harlem Rivers] and 8 [facing the Hudson River] – plus part of Board 12)
Neighborhoods include: Fordham-Bedford, Bedford Park, Norwood, Kingsbridge Heights (Board 7), Kingsbridge, Riverdale (Board 8), and Woodlawn (Board 12). (Marble Hill, Manhattan is now connected by land to the Bronx rather than Manhattan and is served by Bronx Community Board 8.)
Main article: South Bronx
(Bronx Community Boards 1 to 6 plus part of Board 7—progressing northwards, Boards 2, 3 and 6 border the Bronx River from its mouth to Bronx Park, while 1, 4, 5 and 7 face Manhattan across the Harlem River)
Like other neighborhoods in New York City, the South Bronx has no official boundaries. The name has been used to represent poverty in the Bronx and applied to progressively more northern places so that by the 2000s Fordham Road was often used as a northern limit. The Bronx River more consistently forms an eastern boundary. The South Bronx has many high-density apartment buildings, low income public housing complexes, and multi-unit homes. The South Bronx is home to the Bronx County Courthouse, Borough Hall, and other government buildings, as well as Yankee Stadium. The Cross Bronx Expressway bisects it, east to west. The South Bronx has some of the poorest neighborhoods in the country, as well as very high crime areas.
Neighborhoods include: The Hub (a retail district at Third Avenue and East 149th Street), Port Morris, Mott Haven (Board 1), Melrose (Board 1 & Board 3), Morrisania, East Morrisania [also known as Crotona Park East] (Board 3), Hunts Point, Longwood (Board 2), Highbridge, Concourse (Board 4), West Farms, Belmont, East Tremont (Board 6), Tremont, Morris Heights (Board 5), University Heights. (Board 5 & Board 7)
