Argument
A city of superlatives and mind-blowing contrasts ‗City That Never Sleeps‘ ,NYC or ‗Big Apple‘ are just some of the numerous ways New York can be called. The most exciting city in the whole territory of the United States, its unofficial capital of culture and business and the nation‘s trendsetter, will represent the subject of my certification paper. One of the main reasons I choose this topic is the fact that I find New York City the most amazing place where I would like to live. The extravagant culture made me think that this American city represents a whole new world of dreams and opportunities. I am impressed by this colorful city, being stunned not only by the open-mindedness of the people, but also the refreshing air of rebelliousness and freedom. I find it a city of choice and luxury, but extremely permissive at the same time.

The Portrait of „Big Apple‟

Describing the city
New 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. A leading global city, New York exerts a powerful influence over 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 the state of New York, of which it is a part.

Geography
New York City is in the Northeastern United States, in southeastern New York State, approximately halfway between Washington, D.C. and Boston. The location at the mouth of the Hudson River, which feeds into a naturally sheltered harbor and then into the Atlantic Ocean, has helped the city grow in significance as a trading port. Much of New York is built on the three islands of Manhattan, Staten Island, and Long Island, making land scarce and encouraging a high population density. The Hudson River flows through the Hudson Valley into New York Bay. Between New York City and Troy, New York, the river is an estuary. The Hudson separates the city from New Jersey. The East River—a tidal strait—flows from Long Island Sound and separates the Bronx and Manhattan from Long Island. The Harlem River, another tidal strait between the East and Hudson Rivers, separates most of Manhattan from the Bronx. The Bronx River, which flows through the Bronx and Westchester County, is the only entirely fresh water river in the city. The city's land has been altered substantially by human intervention, with considerable land reclamation along the waterfronts since Dutch colonial 4

times. Reclamation is most prominent in Lower Manhattan, with developments such as Battery Park City in the 1970s and 1980s. Some of the natural relief in topography has been evened out, especially in Manhattan. The city's total area is 468.9 square miles (1,214 km2). 164.1 sq mi (425 km2) of this is water and 304.8 sq mi (789 km2) is land. The highest point in the city is Todt Hill on Staten Island, which, at 409.8 feet (124.9 m) above sea level, is the highest point on the Eastern Seaboard south of Maine. The summit of the ridge is mostly covered in woodlands as part of the Staten Island Greenbelt. New York City consists of five boroughs (each one is, in fact, a ‗big city‘ in itself with their own unique culture and traditions.  Manhattan- It is located between the Hudson and East Rivers. It is the most famous island, with maximum interest for tourists and unique neighborhoods.  Brooklyn- It is located across the East River at south east Manhattan.  Queens- It is a U-shaped county located to east of Manhattan, across the East River and north, east and south of Brooklyn. It consists of two international airports, the New York Mets professional baseball team, the United States Open Tennis Center, the famous Flushing Meadows- Corona Park, site of two World‘s Fairs, the country‘s second largest Chinatown and much more.  The Bronx- It is located to the North of Manhattan Island. This part of NY is well connected to the U.S. continent.  Staten Island- It is located within New York harbor, across the narrow Kill Van Kull from New Jersey. It is situated at the south of Manhattan.

A glance over the past
In the precolonial era, the area of present day New York City was inhabited by various bands of Algonquian tribes of Native Americans, including the Lenape, whose homeland, known as Lenapehoking, included Staten Island, the western portion ofLong Island (including the area that would become Brooklyn and Queens), Manhattan, and the Lower Hudson Valley, including The Bronx. The first documented visit by a European was in 1524 by Giovanni da Verrazzano, a Florentine explorer in the service of theFrench crown, who sailed his ship La Dauphine into New York Harbor. He claimed the area for France and named it "Nouvelle Angoulême" (New Angoulême). A Spanish expedition led by captain Estêvão Gomes, a Portuguese sailing for Emperor Charles V, arrived in New York Harbor in January 1525 aboard the purpose-built caravel "La Anunciada" and charted the mouth of the Hudson river, which he named Rio de San Antonio. Heavy ice kept him from further exploration, and he returned to Spain in August. The first scientific map to show the North American East coast continuously, the 1527 world map known as the Padrón Real, was informed by Gomes' expedition, and labeled the Northeast as Tierra de Esteban Gómez in his honor. New York grew in importance as a trading port while under British rule in the early 1700s. It also became a center of slavery, with 42% of households holding slaves by 1730, more than any other city other than Charleston, South Carolina. Most slaveholders held a few or several domestic slaves, but others hired them out to work at labor. Slavery became integrally tied to New York's economy through the labor of slaves throughout the port, and the banks and shipping tied to the South. Discovery of the African Burying Ground in the 1990s during construction of a new federal courthouse near Foley Square revealed that tens of thousands of Africans had been buried in the area in the colonial years. The city and surrounding area suffered the bulk of the economic damage and largest loss of human life in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States. 2,978 people died as a result of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center and many more were injured in the disaster. The rebuilding of the area, has created a 6

new One World Trade Center, and a 9/11 memorial and museum along with other new buildings and infrastructure which are at various stages of construction. The World Trade Center PATH station, which opened on July 19, 1909 as the Hudson Terminal, was also destroyed in the attack. A temporary station was built and opened on November 23, 2003. A permanent station, theWorld Trade Center Transportation Hub, is currently under construction. The new One World Trade Center is the tallest skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere and the fourth-tallest building in the world by pinnacle height, with its spire reaching a symbolic 1,776 feet (541.3 m) in reference to the year of American independence.

Social Life
New York City takes pride in its population of no less than 8.3 million inhabitants. Consequently, it is officially the most populous city in the United States. The city‘s ethnic flavor has been nuanced by decades of immigrations. As a result, nowadays, only 60% of the citizens are Native Americans. The rest belong to a wide list of nations from all over the word: Hispanics, Asians, Italians, Irish, German, Russian, Polish etc. The following lost contains some famous people born in New York City:

Cultural Life
‗Culture just seems to be in the air, like part of the weather‘, the writer Tom Wolfe has said of New York City. Numerous major American cultural movements began in the city, such as the Harlem Renaissance, which established the African-American literary cannon in the United States. The city was a center of jazz in the 1940s, abstract expressionism in the 1950s and the birthplace of hip hop in the 1970s. The city‘s punk and hardcore scenes were influential in the 1970s and 1980s, and the city has long had a flourishing scene for Jewish American literature. Prominent indie rock bands coming out of New York in recent years include The Strockes , Interpol, The Bravery, Scissors Sisters and They Might Be Giants. The city prominently excels in its spheres of art, cuisine, dance, music, opera, theater, independent film, fashion, museums and literature. The city is the birthplace of many cultural movements, including the Harlem Renaissance in literature and visual art; abstract expressionism (also known as the New York School) in painting; and hip hop, punk, salsa, disco, freestyle and Tim Pan Alley in music. New York City is also widely celebrated in popular lore, featured frequently as the setting for books, movies and television programs.

Entertainment and arts
The city is also prominent in the American film industry. Manhatta(1920), an early avant-garde film, was filmed in the city. Today, New York City is the second largest center for the film industry in the United States. The city has more than 2,000 arts and cultural organization and more than 500 art galleries of all sizes. 8

The city government funds the arts with a larger annual budget than the National Endowment for Arts. Wealthy industrialists in the 19th century built a network of major cultural institutions, such as the famed Carnegie Hall and Metropolitan Museum of Art, that would become internationally established. The advent of the electric lighting led to elaborate theater productions, and in the 1880s New York City theaters on Broadway and along 42nd Street began featuring a new stage form that became known as the Broadway musical. Strongly influenced by the city‘s immigrants, productions such as those of Harrigan and Hart, George M. Cohan and others used song in narratives that often reflected themes of hope and ambitions. Today these productions are a staple of the New York Theater scene. The city‘s 39 largest theaters (with more than 500 seats) are collectively known as ‗Broadway‘, after the major thoroughfare that crosses the Times Square theater district. This area is sometimes referred to as The Main Stem. The Great White Way or The Realto. Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts is home to 12 influential arts organizations, making it the largest performing arts complex in the United States.

Tourism
Tourism is vital to New York City, with about 47 million foreign and American tourists visiting each year. One of the most popular places to visit in New York are the Empire State Building, the Rockefeller Center, Times Square, the American Museum of National History, Central Park, Washington Square Park, the Bronx Zoo, luxury shopping along Fifth and Madison Avenues, Little Italy, Chinatown, along with New York‘s trademark, the Statue of Liberty, and Ellis Island among many others. The Empire State Building and the Rockefeller Center are one of the New York‘s tallest skyscrapers whose observatories offer spectacular views over the entire city. Furthermore, Times Square is one of the most popular squares in the world. It is surrounded by remarkable massive buildings, captivating commercials, and swanky architecture that make you feel like you are in a high-tech fairy world. The American Museum of National History serves as a window onto the world and the universe that takes you on an unforgettable journey of discovery. Moreover, it is one of the best family 9

attractions in New York and offers great educational lessons with its fascinating exhibitions. Little Italy and Chinatown are unique places situated in Lower Manhattan that make you feel as if you are really in Italy and China. Furthermore, these two neighborhoods are very popular among tourists because of their history, culture, and traditions. The Statue of Liberty is New York‘s symbol. This feat of engineering so widely portrayed in movies is located on Liberty marvel; you also get the chance to explore the famous Ellis Island, where many people have passed through with the same hope: to became Americans. The Big Apple and shopping go hand in hand. Many people come to New York for one reason only, and that is to indulge into a flurry of shopping. When in New York, most tourists do not care about money, and at the drop of a hat, they buy whatever they get their hands on. In addition, New York features all of the most popular fashion designers and brands. People can go on shopping spree and still not get pass the first block. Any of the city‘s ethnic enclaves, such as Jackson Heights, Flushing, and Brighton Beach are prime shopping destinations for first and second generations Americans up and down the East Coast. In short, New York has everything you need in fashion, tech-gadgets and entertainment, and must have brands that cam make you as happy as a calm at high tide. New York‘s transportation system is one of a kind. Its famous subway takes you to any of the five boroughs, letting you see all the ―hot spots‖ of this beautiful metropolis. In addition, the subway is the preferred transportation since taxis are very expensive. There are many other types of transportation besides the subway that can help you explore the city. Bike rides are very popular and a perfect way to explore the best of NYC. The other types of transportation are more extravagant and include New York‘s water taxi, various helicopter and cruise tour, and many trendy bus rides throughout the city.

Cuisine
New York's food culture, influenced by the city's immigrants and large number of dining patrons, is diverse. Eastern European and Italian immigrants have made the city famous for bagels, cheesecake, and New York-style pizza. Some 4,000 mobile food vendors licensed by the city, many immigrant-owned, have made Middle Eastern foods such as falafels and kebabs standbys of modern New York street food, although hot dogs and pretzels are still the main street fare.

Accent
The New York City area has a distinctive regional speech pattern called the New York dialect, alternatively known as Brooklynese or New Yorkese. It is generally considered one of the most recognizable accents within American English. The classic version of this dialect is centered on middle and working class people of European American descent, and the influx of non-European immigrants in recent decades has led to changes in this distinctive dialect. The traditional New York area accent is non-rhotic, so that the sound [ɹ] does not appear at the end of a syllable or immediately before a consonant; hence the pronunciation of the city name as "New Yawk."

Sports
New York City is home to the headquarters of the National Football League, Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, the National Hockey League, and Major League Soccer. Four of the ten most expensive stadiums ever built worldwide (MetLife Stadium, the new Yankee Stadium, Madison Square Garden, and Citi Field) are in the New York metropolitan area.The New York metropolitan area has the most professional sports teams in these five leagues. 11

New York has been described as the "Capital of Baseball".There have been 35 Major League Baseball World Series and 73 pennants won by New York teams. It is one of only five metro areas (Los Angeles , Chicago, Baltimore–Washington, and the San Francisco Bay Area being the others) to have two baseball teams. Additionally, there have been 14 World Series in which two New York City teams played each other, known as a Subway Series and occurring most recently in 2000. No other metropolitan area has had this happen more than once (Chicago in 1906, St. Louis in 1944, and the San Francisco Bay Area in 1989). In soccer, New York is represented by the Major League Soccer side, New York Red Bulls. The Red Bulls play their home games atRed Bull Arena in nearby Harrison, New Jersey. The New York area's second Major League Soccer club, to be called New York City FC, is planned to start play in the 2015 season, to be majority-owned by Manchester City F.C. owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan of Abu Dhabi, partnering with the New York Yankees baseball organization.

City Sights
Tourism is vital to the city of New York, with about 47 million foreign and American tourists visiting each year this enchanting and interesting place. It comprises a multitude of attractions, ranging from art, music, dance, sightseeing to pubs, clubs and restaurants with exquisite food. It is famous for its world class concerts, theaters and works of art. The major attraction of the city is the Statue of Liberty, which has become its icon. Other major visiting points here in New York are Empire State Building and Ellis Island. The legend says that when British immigrants tried to escape from Europe and were headed to the United States, the first thing they saw from the other side of the Atlantic Ocean was the reassuring image of this statue.

The Statue of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty (French: Statue de la Liberté), officially titled Liberty Enlightening the World (French: la Liberté éclairant le monde), dedicated on October 28, 1886, is a monument commemorating the centennial of the signing of the United States Declaration of Independence, given to the United States by the people of France to represent the friendship between the two countries established during the American Revolution. It represents a woman wearing a stola, a radiant crown and sandals, trampling a broken chain, carrying a torch in her raised right hand and a tabula ansata, where the date of the Declaration of Independence JULY IV MDCCLXXVI is inscribed, in her left arm. Standing on Liberty Island in New York Harbor, it welcomes visitors, immigrants, and returning Americans traveling by ship. The pedestal was designed by architect Richard Morris Hunt. Eugène Viollet-le-Duc was responsible for the choice of copper in the statue's construction, and for the adoption of the repoussé technique, where a malleable metal is hammered on the reverse side. The statue is made of a sheathing of pure copper, hung on a framework of steel (originally puddled iron) with the exception of the flame of the torch, which is coated in gold leaf (originally made of copper and later altered to hold glass panes). It stands atop a rectangular stonework pedestal with a foundation in the shape of an irregular elevenpointed star. The statue is 151 ft (46 m) tall, but with the pedestal and foundation, it is 305 ft (93 m) tall. Worldwide, the Statue of Liberty is one of the most recognizable icons of the United States. For many years it was one of the first glimpses of the United States for millions of immigrants and visitors after ocean voyages from around the world. The statue is the central part of Statue of Liberty National Monument, administered by the National Park Service. The National Monument also includes Ellis Island. 13

Empire State Building
The Empire State Building is a 102-story landmark Art Deco skyscraper in New York City at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and West 34th Street. Its name is derived from the nickname for the state of New York, The Empire State. It stood as the world's tallest building for more than forty years, from its completion in 1931 until construction of the World Trade Center's North Tower was completed in 1972. Following the destruction of the World Trade Center in 2001, the Empire State Building once again became the tallest building in New York City and New York State. The Empire State Building has been named by the American Society of Civil Engineers as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. The building and its street floor interior are designated landmarks of the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission, and confirmed by the New York City Board of Estimate. It was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1986. In 2007, it was ranked number one on the List of America's Favorite Architecture according to the AIA. The building is owned and managed by W&H Properties. The Empire State Building is the third tallest skyscraper in the Americas (after the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) and Trump International Hotel and Tower both in Chicago), and the 15th tallest in the world. It is also the fourth tallest freestanding structure in the Americas. The Empire State building is currently undergoing a $120 million renovation in an effort to transform the building into a more energy efficient and eco-friendly structure.

Brooklyn Bridge
The Brooklyn Bridge is a bridge in New York City and is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States. Completed in 1883, it connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River. It has a main span of 1,595.5 feet (486.3 m), and was the first steel-wire suspension bridge constructed. Originally referred to as the New York and Brooklyn Bridge and as the East River Bridge, it was dubbed the Brooklyn Bridge, a name from an earlier January 25, 1867, letter to the editor of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, and formally so named by the city government in 1915. Since its opening, it has become an icon of New York City, and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964 and a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark in 1972. The Brooklyn Bridge was initially designed by German immigrant John Augustus Roebling, who had previously designed and constructed shorter suspension bridges, such as Roebling's Delaware Aqueduct in Lackawaxen, Pennsylvania, Waco Suspension Bridge in Waco, Texas, and the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge inCincinnati, Ohio. Contemporaries marveled at what technology was capable of and the bridge became a symbol of the optimism of the time. John Perry Barlow wrote in the late 20th century of the "literal and genuinely religious leap of faith" embodied in the Brooklyn Bridge ... "the Brooklyn Bridge required of its builders faith in their ability to control technology."

15

Broadway theatre
Broadway theatre, commonly called simply Broadway, refers to theatrical performances presented in one of the 40 large professional theatres with 500 seats or more located in the Theatre District, New York (plus one theatre in Lincoln Center) in Manhattan, New York City. Along with London's West End theatre, Broadway theatre is usually considered to represent the highest level of commercial theatre in the English-speaking world. The Broadway Theatre district is a popular tourist attraction in New York City, New York. According to The Broadway League, Broadway shows sold approximately $943.3 million worth of tickets in the 2008-2009 season, compared to $937 million in the 2007-2008 season.

Wall Street
Wall Street is a street in Lower Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA. It runs east from Broadway to South Street on the East River, through the historical center of the Financial District. It is the first permanent home of the New York Stock Exchange; over time Wall Street became the name of the surrounding geographic neighborhood. Wall Street is also shorthand (or a metonym) for the "influential financial interests" of the American financial industry, which is centered in the New York City area.

Entertainment
Music and Film
New York is the first American city to fill a central gap in music history, having a very important and diverse musical background. It has been a thriving home for jazz, rock and blues for a very long time. Moreover, it represents the place where hip hop and crunk were born. People from all over the world come to experience jazz in New York at any of the city‘s many celebrated clubs. From garage bands at holes-in-the-wall with no cover charge to the world‘s greatest musicians in the glitzy stage of Jazz at Lincoln Center, you can find something for every taste every night of the week in New York. Here are some significant singers from New York:         Mariah Carey Alicia Keys Lady Gaga P Didy Mary J. Blidge Jenifer Lopez Christina Aguilera Tupac Shakur

In the early days of American film industry, The Big Apple was the epicenter of filmmaking. Nowadays, even though it is not as well-developed as Hollywood from this point of view, its billions of dollars in revenue make filming an important part of the city‘s economy, placing New York the second largest center of film industry in the United States. A series of blockbusters were filmed here, such as ―The Godfather‖ 1 & 2, ―Scarface‖, ―When Harry Met Sally‖, ―Breakfast At Tiffany‘s‖ and ―Home Alone 2: Lost in New York‖. New York also prides with its famous New York Film Academy (NYFA), which is honored to have prepared and guided the steps of celebrities such as: Steven Spielberg, Al Pacino, Jodie Foster, Pierce Brosnan, Robert Downie Jr., Jamie Foxx, Roger Donaldson and others. It is considered the most interactive film school in the world by many of today‘s top filmmakers.

NYC Nightlife
As the song says, New York is the ‗city that never sleeps‘. Even though it mainly has expensive bars and clubs, it still remains the ‗dream of an insomniac‘. No other city rivals The Big Apple in terms of performing arts. From the incredible range of theaters, operas, dance and symphony, to live rock and jazz music, the biggest problem will be choosing among the many temptations. Whether it‘s live jazz, rock, comedy or cabaret, sweating on a dance floor or sipping a martini while lounging on a plush couch, New York has a multitude of choices to make your stay worthwhile. Looking for a place to sit and have a cocktail should never be a problem, since there are 3 or 4 bars on every block. There is also a variety of bars, ranging from elegant and formal to jazz, junkie and rock and roll.  Jazz Clubs: Birdland, Blue Note, Dizzy`s Club Coca-Cola, Lenox Lounge, Smoke, St. Nick‘s Pub, The Village Vanguard, Oak Room Supper Club  Rock and roll offering: Arlene Grocery, Bowery Ballroom, Irving Plaza, Mercury, Lounge  Blues bars: B.B. King Blues Club & Grill, The Knitting Factory, S.O.B., Tonic  Expensive and elegant: 40/40 Club(owned by hip-hop singer Jay-Z), Bemelman‘s Bar, Cielo, MO bar  Comedy bars: Caroline‘s on Broadway, Comedy Cellar, Dangerfield‘s Gotham Comedy Club  Dance clubs: Avalon, Cain

Future Horizons
How will the new New York look like in a couple of years from now on? It is very possible that the city will easily expand to a population of 9 or 10 million, due to its rapid development in all aspects, especially the high rate of immigration. Politicians, bureaucrats, architects and engineers will soon start to calculate how to fit another million people into the landscape. The population‘s growth comes along with all sorts of necessities, such as offices, factories, hotels or schools, let alone groceries stores and restaurants. There should also be more buses, subways and trains, in order to facilitate the traffic and transportation of the whole population. All of these improvements will easily be made because The Big Apple‘s economy is flourishing and it is not hard to guess that a population ‗boom‘ is very likely to appear in the near future. With approximately 10 million inhabitants and 1,300 square kilometres, the New York City of tomorrow will probably become the new capital of the United States. Nowadays its influence outweighs that of Los Angeles, San Francisco or Washington D.C., the capital itself, and I see that as an indirect way of leading the country‘s economy. I dare say New York is the informal capital of the US, while Washington D.C. is the formal one.
