New York City

New York is known as the cultural, financial, and media capital of the world. Home to the headquarters of the United Nations, its residents speak over 800 languages and over 60 million people visit the city every year to take it all in.

New York is home to Wall Street and the two largest stock exchanges in the world and it’s known as the most financially powerful city in the world with more billionaires in residence than any other city. For over 200 years, the "Big Apple" has been the centre of opportunities where dreams and accomplishments can be big, and is known for it fast pace, which is unrivalled.

Getting around

Put a New York City map in front of you, and you will see how easy it is to get around town. Most of Manhattan's neighbourhoods are after all quite self-descriptive: Upper East Side, Upper West Side, and so on.

Commuting to word can be as easy as putting on a pair of walking shoes: many New Yorkers walk to their destination. If walking isn't your forte, public transit is another great option - or hailing one of its famous yellow cabs. New York is known for its inexpensive and environmentally-friendly rail system, or "subway".
