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. It’s young and old and everything in between…and that’s just the beginning.

How well do you know this spectacular metropolis? NewYork.com is here to help your readers find out — and give them a chance to win a little money in the process. This week and running for the next four weeks, NewYork.com is releasing a series of fun quizzes, each more difficult than the last. Each Monday for the NewYork.com will reveal a new quiz on this page.

You’ll have from Monday at noon EST through Friday at midnight EST to test your knowledge – so still time to share this week! Each time you get five or more of the answers correct you’ll be entered to win a $500 gift certificate to NewYork.com, which you can use to book that Broadway show you’ve been dying to see, a night in a hotel, a romantic brunch cruise and much more. NewYork.com is giving away four $500 gift certificates in all — one per week — for a chance to win up to $2,000 over the course of the program.

Readers need not worry if they don’t get all the answers correct the first time around — they can take the quiz as many times as they’d like. NewYork.com announces the winner to each week’s quiz on the subsequent Monday.
