When most people talk about "New York", they mean Manhattan. Natives call it "The City" as in "I'm going into The City" or "is that in The City?" Manhattan is one of the most crowded places on the planet. Home of Wall Street, Central Park, countless world-class museums and universities, and the best pizzas and bagels in the world!
Visit Wall Street, and see the center of global capitalism at work. At the corners of Wall and Broad street sits the NYSE and a block or so away is the giant bull sculpture representing the undying optimism of the American markets.
