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 Citys banks and law firms have prospered. The Metropolitan regions 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 Yorks 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 nations television and radio networks, making it the heart of the mass media in the United States. The headquarters of most of the nations major publishing houses and advertising agencies are also clustered in Manhattans Midtown.
