PostSubject: New York City   Sun Dec 26, 2010 5:53 pm

New York is the most populous city in the United States, and the center of the New York metropolitan area, which is one of the most populous metropolitan areas in the world. The largest city in the USA, New York City has a significant impact on global commerce, finance, media, culture, art, fashion, research, education, and entertainment. As host of the United Nations Headquarters, it is also an important center for international affairs. The city is often referred to as New York City or the City of New York to distinguish it from the state of New York, of which it is a part.

Located on a large natural harbor on the Atlantic coast of the Northeastern United States, the city consists of five boroughs: The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island. The city's 2009 estimated population approached 8.4 million,[2] and with a land area of 305 square miles (790 km2),[3][4][5] New York City is the most densely populated major city in the United States.[6] The New York metropolitan area's population is the USA's largest, estimated at 19.1 million people over 6,720 square miles (17,400 km2). The Combined Statistical Area contained 22.2 million people as of 2009 Census estimates, also the largest in the United States.

New York was founded as a commercial trading post by the Dutch in 1624. The settlement was called New Amsterdam until 1664 when the colony came under English control.[7] New York served as the capital of the United States from 1785 until 1790.[8] It has been the country's largest city since 1790.[9] As many as 800 languages are spoken in New York City, making it the most linguistically diverse city in the world.[10]
