Synopsis

New York by Sally Garrington

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 on 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.
