New YorkNew 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.  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, New York City consists of five boroughs: The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island.  

With a population of 8.4 million distributed over a land area of just 305 square miles (790 km2), New York is the most densely populated major city in the United States.  As many as 800 languages are spoken in New York, making it the most linguistically diverse city in the world.  

The New York metropolitan area's population is the United States' largest, estimated at 19.1 million people distributed over 6,720 square miles (17,400 km2).  The New York metropolitan area is part of a combined statistical area that contained 22.2 million people as of 2009 Census estimates, the largest combined statistical area in the United States.

New York traces its roots to the 1624 founding of New Amsterdam as a trading post by Dutch colonists.  The city and its surrounds came under English control in 1664, and was renamed New York after King Charles II of England granted the lands to his brother, the Duke of York.  New York served as the capital of the United States from 1785 until 1790.  It has been the country's largest city since 1790.

Many districts and landmarks in New York City have become well known to outsiders.  The Statue of Liberty greeted millions of immigrants as they came to America by ship in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  Times Square, iconified as "The Crossroads of the World", is the brightly illuminated hub of the Broadway theater district, one of the world's busiest pedestrian intersections, and a major center of the world's entertainment industry.

New York City's financial district, anchored by Wall Street in Lower Manhattan, vies with London as the financial capital of the world and is home to the New York Stock Exchange, the world's largest stock exchange by market capitalization.  Manhattans real estate market has become well known to the world as one of the most prized and expensive in the world.  Numerous colleges and universities are located in New York, including Columbia University, New York University and Rockefeller University, which are ranked among the top 100 in the world.
