Details

New York, the most densely populated city in North America, is the home of the United Nations and a hub of international finance, art, and entertainment. Strategically located on one of the world's largest harbors, "New Amsterdam" was founded by the Dutch in 1625. A must-see for tourists from around the world, New York is a powerful symbol of American culture. The city welcomes immigrants, with more than a third of its population foreign born. And it has successfully dealt with crime—it is the safest large city in the U.S. Though devastated by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, New York continues its strong recovery. New York offers readers a well-ordered introduction to this complex city, from its history and amazing diversity to its economy, infrastructure and management, and the possibilities ahead.
