New York, commonly referred to as New York City or NYC, holds the distinction of being the most populous city in the United States. With a population of 8,804,190 as of 2020, spread across an area of 300.46 square miles (778.2 km2), it stands as the most densely populated major city in the country. Compared to Los Angeles, the second-largest city in the nation, New York City boasts a population that is more than twice as large. In fact, the city’s population exceeds that of 38 individual U.S. states. Situated at the southern tip of New York State, New York City serves as both the geographical and demographic center of the Northeast megalopolis and the New York metropolitan area, which is the largest metropolitan area in the U.S. in terms of population and urban area. The city’s metropolitan statistical area has over 20.1 million people, and its combined statistical area has a population of 23.5 million as of 2020. Moreover, more than 58 million people reside within a 250-mile (400 km) radius of the city, making it one of the world’s most populous megacities. Renowned as a global hub for culture, finance, technology, entertainment, fashion, media, and glamour, New York City wields substantial influence in fields such as commerce, healthcare, life sciences, research, technology, education, politics, tourism, dining, art, fashion, and sports. It houses the headquarters of the United Nations and plays a crucial role in international diplomacy, often being referred to as the “capital of the world.”

New York City is located on one of the largest natural harbors in the world, extending into the Atlantic Ocean. It consists of five boroughs, each coextensive with a respective county of the state of New York. These boroughs—Brooklyn (Kings County), Queens (Queens County), Manhattan (New York County), The Bronx (Bronx County), and Staten Island (Richmond County)—were established in 1898 through the consolidation of local governments into a single municipal entity.

In terms of economic prowess, the New York metropolitan area holds the top spot as the world’s largest metropolitan economy, boasting a gross metropolitan product exceeding $2.4 trillion as of 2021. If the New York metropolitan area were an independent nation, it would possess the eighth-largest economy globally. The city serves as a prominent safe haven for global investors and is home to the highest number of billionaires, individuals with ultra-high net worth (greater than US$30 million), and millionaires of any city in the world.

New York City and its metropolitan area are recognized as the premier gateway for legal immigration to the United States. The city’s linguistic diversity is unparalleled, with approximately 800 languages spoken, making it the most linguistically diverse city worldwide. As of 2016, New York City is home to more than 3.2 million foreign-born residents, constituting the largest foreign-born population of any city globally.

Regarding climate, New York City falls under the humid subtropical classification, being the northernmost major city in North America to have this categorization. The suburbs to the immediate north and west lie in the transitional zone between humid subtropical and humid continental climates. As per the Trewartha climate classification, the city is considered to have an oceanic climate. The city experiences an average of 234 days with some sunshine annually. While winters tend to be chilly and damp, the presence of prevailing wind patterns and the Atlantic Ocean mitigate the cold, resulting in warmer temperatures compared to inland cities at similar latitudes during the winter months. The mean daily temperature in January, the coldest month, is 33.3 °F (0.7 °C). Temperatures can drop to 10 °F (−12 °C) multiple times throughout winter but can also reach 60 °F (16 °C) for several days. Spring and autumn are generally mild, with temperatures ranging from cool to warm and lower humidity. Summers are typically hot and humid, with an average daily temperature of 77.5 °F (25.3 °C) in July.

The financial industry, famously known as Wall Street, is the cornerstone of New York City’s economy. The securities industry remains the largest segment within the city’s financial sector and serves as a significant economic driver. Numerous major financial institutions are headquartered in the city, and it has also become a hub for emerging financial startups.

Lower Manhattan hosts iconic financial institutions such as the New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street and the Nasdaq on Broadway. These stock exchanges hold the distinction of being the world’s largest and second-largest, respectively, based on average daily trading volume and total market capitalization of listed companies in 2013. In 2012, Wall Street’s investment banking fees amounted to approximately $40 billion, while senior bank officers responsible for risk and compliance functions earned annual salaries as high as $324,000 in 2013. The securities industry on Wall Street generated 19% of New York State’s tax revenue during the fiscal year 2013-14.

New York City remains a global leader in public equity and debt capital markets, driven by the size and financial development of the U.S. economy. It also excels in hedge fund management, private equity, and the volume of mergers and acquisitions. Several investment banks and asset management firms based in Manhattan play critical roles in other global financial centers. Additionally, many of the world’s largest media conglomerates have established their headquarters in the city. Manhattan alone had over 500 million square feet (46.5 million m2) of office space in 2018, making it the largest office market in the United States. Midtown Manhattan, with 400 million square feet (37.2 million m2) in 2018, stands as the world’s largest central business district.

New York City’s stature as a global hub for business, commerce, and investment has led to its reputation as the “capital of the world.” The term “global city” gained prominence through sociologist Saskia Sassen’s 1991 work, “The Global City: New York, London, Tokyo.” In addition to its dominance in banking and finance, the city’s influence extends to sectors such as healthcare, life sciences, medical technology, research, retail, international trade, transportation, tourism, real estate, new media, traditional media, advertising, legal services, accountancy, insurance, theater (both musical and prose), fashion, and the arts within the United States. New York’s high-tech sphere, known as Silicon Alley, continues to expand. The Port of New York and New Jersey serves as a significant economic driver, benefiting from the post-Panamax expansion of the Panama Canal and surpassing California seaports in monthly cargo volumes in 2023.
