The City That Never Sleeps
New York City, originally founded by the Dutch as 'New Amsterdam' in 1625, consists of five 'boroughs', or districts: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx, and Staten Island. Manhattan and Brooklyn are the most popular districts in terms of sightseeing and business. As a world capital city, New York can offer you the best in everything and anything you could possibly want: from world-class shopping, fine dining, rock or hip-hop concerts, to first-rate international conference and convention centers. Famous television shows like 30 Rock, Friends, and Seinfeld help depict the lives of your average New Yorker.
