New York City. After 30 years in Paris, a French guy in NYC

 

After 10 days with Judd and his family in Canada, I went to visit Tal and this amazing place. I knew i'm going to use my kites in this place however I used to live in Paris 30 years... So it was a "come back" to city after 4 years in my Paradise. Tal introduce this city perfectly between Museum, Restaurants, Subway, Café, Night Club and more.

Also we rent bikes and it was a nice idea to ride from Hudson River to Financial District, Chinatown, Little Italy, Soho... for 40 US and few hours, try it and you will see this city with different eyes...

About Big Apple
New York City (officially the City of New York) is the largest city in the United States and one of the world's major global cities. Located in the state of NY, the city has a population of over 8.1 million [1] within an area of 321 square miles (approximately 830 km²), [2] making it the most densely populated major city in North America. With a population of 18.7 million the NY Metropolitan Area is one of the largest urban areas in the world, [3] yet this city has the lowest crime rate among major United States cities. [4]

 

New York City is an international center for business, finance, fashion, medicine, entertainment, media, and culture, with an extraordinary collection of museums, galleries, performance venues, media outlets, international corporations, and financial markets. The city is also home to the headquarters of the United Nations, and to many of the world's most famous skyscrapers.

 

Popularly known as the "Big Apple," the "City That Never Sleeps," or the "Capital of the World," the city attracts people from all over the globe who come for NY City's economic opportunity, culture, and fast-paced cosmopolitan lifestyle.

 

NY City: Boroughs
The five boroughs: 1: Manhattan, 2: Brooklyn, 3: Queens, 4: Bronx, 5: Staten Island

Officially the "City of Greater NY ", is comprised of the Five Boroughs. Throughout the boroughs there are hundreds of distinct neighborhoods, many with a definable history and character all their own. If the boroughs were independent cities, each would be among the 50 most populous cities in the United States.

Manhattan (NY County, pop. 1,593,200[1]) is the business center of the city, and the most superlatively urban of the boroughs. It is the most densely populated, and the home of most of the city's skyscrapers. It is loosely divided into downtown, midtown, and uptown regions.

The Bronx (Bronx County, pop. 1,357,589[1]) is known as the birthplace of hip hop culture[10], as well as the home of the New York Yankees and the largest cooperatively owned housing complex in the United States, Co-op City. Excluding its minor islands, the Bronx is the only borough of the city that is on the mainland of the United States.

Brooklyn (Kings County, pop. 2,486,235[1]), the most populous borough, was until 1898 an independent city and has a strong native identity. It ranges from a modern business district downtown to large historic residential neighborhoods in the central and south-eastern areas. It also features a long beachfront and Coney Island, famous as one of the earliest amusement grounds in the country.

Queens (Queens County, pop. 2,241,600[1]) is geographically the largest borough and, according to the US census, the most ethnically diverse county in the United States.[11] Prior to consolidation with NYC it was composed of small towns and villages founded by the Dutch. It is home to the New York Mets, two of the region's three major airports, and Flushing Meadows Corona Park, site of the 1939 and 1964 World's Fairs and tennis' US Open

Staten Island (Richmond County, pop. 464,573[1]) is the most suburban in character of the five boroughs, but has gradually integrated with the rest of the city since the opening of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in 1964, an event that caused controversy and even an attempt at secession. Until 2001, Staten Island was the home of the infamous Fresh Kills Landfill, formerly the largest landfill in the world, and now being reconstructed as one of the largest urban parks in the United States.
