What is New York City? It’s 8 million inhabitants spread out across five boroughs and speaking 200 languages. It’s 25,000 restaurants serving every kind of cuisine imaginable. It’s Broadway and Times Square, the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. It’s the most extensive 24-hour subway system in the country.
