In 1664, after seizing New Amsterdam from the Dutch who had settled there, the British gave it a new name: New York City.
For the next century, the population of New York City grew larger and more diverse as it became a destination for immigrants coming to the country to begin a new life. Now, more than 8 million people live in the city’s five boroughs – The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island.
New York City is one of the top destinations for tourists around the world. Drawcards include the iconic Statue of Liberty, shopping on Fifth Avenue, the impressive Central Park, the hustle and bustle of Times Square and Broadway – the heart of the NYC’s performing arts scene. Along with iconic museums and galleries – destinations like the Met and MOMA house immense collections – the City is also a culinary capital featuring cuisines from every corner of the globe, including the world famous NYC pizza and bagels.
