New York City has risen from its humble beginnings as a Dutch settlement to a teeming international center of politics, media, commerce, and culture. The Big Apple lures people from throughout the world to its famous art galleries, theaters, and monuments. Hardworking New Yorkers now represent a range of ethnicities, spread among the city's five boroughs. From the neon lights of Broadway to the top of the Empire State Building, Great Cities of the World explores what makes New York City a multifaceted metropolis.
