1) Quick City Overview: New York






Placed on the top of the most important cities of the world, New York functioned in the 20th Century as some sort of world capital, with a demonstration of all of the biggest industrial achievements of the Humanity in the century, from the conquest of the skies with the Art Deco and Neogothic skyscrapers (in a direct competition with Chicago), to the elevated trains, iconic bridges and one of the largest subway networks. The city is divided into 5 Boroughs: Queens, Staten Island, the Bronx, Brooklyn and Manhattan. The two main cores of the city are the Midtown Manhattan in front of the Central Park, who always was one of the most expensive places in the world, and the Lower Manhattan in front of the Statue of Liberty, who concentrates the whole history of New York. That was the exact place where the dutch founded New Amsterdam several centuries ago, just before when the british took over and renamed it. Nowadays, the old british buildings still lie between the skyscrapers who were built when the area progressed and it became the financial district, whose core is the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and Wall Street. This was also the place where the old and new World Trade Center were built. Somehow, it served as the front door to those who sought a new life in America. And as for the 21th Century, the future looks very promising for New York, with the construction of new skyscrapers who are going to surpass the established height limit of the Empire State Building and the fast progress coming to the surrounding boroughs.

New York City, greatesssst city in the world,
All other cities are built by marrrrrmot,
NYC, No.1 in taller skyscrapers, while other cities are lack of skyscraper feel.
