To the residence of New York City


This efffort is to assist in openning to door to the greater world of who you are as well as others through Inter - Cultural Communications via the internet.This blog and the associated website is based upon the principle of cultural democracy. What this means is that you the community - online ( because your are now using a computer to read this ) user has the means to impact your community with others through your contribution to what is being published on the internet about your community.

A community has many voices, and those who are not aware of either your community or the diversity among your very own people should be likewise known.This is a mirror reflection of us all, and depicts the very differences each community has, which then becomes the very scoiocultural richness and valuable assests we need to maintain a rich an full life -individually. Moreover, this effort was started as a result when suggestions were offered by two Cornell student's emails - right after I place Ithaca Night Life ( NightLife ), NY online. Since then I have cover many other communities, and have enlisted help from the very same communities I have covered in my Night Life ( NightLife ), RMC series of blogs, journalsites and websites. Emails come in daily.

A perspective on New York City - ongoing...

New York City, officially named the City of New York, is the most populous city in the United States, the most densely populated major city in North America, and is the largest financial center in the world. The city is at the center of international finance, politics, entertainment, and culture. New York City is one of the world's major global cities (along with London, Tokyo and Paris) and is home to an almost unrivaled collection of world-class museums, galleries, performance venues, media outlets, international corporations, and stock exchanges. The city is also home to all of the missions to the United Nations, which has its headquarters in New York City. New York is widely regarded as one of the great intellectual, financial, and cultural centers of the world. Located in the state of New York, New York City has an area of 309 square miles (800 km²). Estimated in 2004 to have 8,168,388 residents, it is the heart of the New York Metropolitan Area, which is one of the largest urban conglomerations in the world with a population of over 22 million. New York City proper comprises five boroughs: Brooklyn, the Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island, with all but Staten Island having populations exceeding one million. It also stands in the middle of the BosWash megalopolis that runs down the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. (see: Metropolitan Combined Statistical Area) The city includes large populations of immigrants from over 180 countries who help make it one of the most cosmopolitan places on earth. Many people from all over the United States are also attracted to New York City for its culture, energy, and cosmopolitanism, and by their own hope of making it big in the "Big Apple." The city serves as an enormous engine for the global economy, and is home to more Fortune 500 companies than any other place in the United States. The city is estimated to have a Gross Metropolitan Product of nearly $500 billion. If it were a nation, the city would have the 17th highest gross domestic product in the world, far exceeding that of Switzerland ($377 billion) and nearly equaling that of Russia ($586 billion). Nicknames for the city include "The Big Apple", "The City That Never Sleeps", or just "The City" (though to a New Yorker, this generally refers to the borough of Manhattan). A resident of New York City is referred to as a New Yorker.
