The central city of the United States, New York is the center of many industries and culture in the United States. New York City grew mostly out of immigrants from Europe, Asia and Latin America and represents one of the most international cities in the world. It is the home of the United Nations, the center of world finance and of the United States media. New York City covers 300 square miles which consists of five boroughs, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island. When people think of New York they usually think of Manhattan which is an island barely 12 miles long and 2 miles wide. This island, which lore says was purchased by the colonists from the Indians for about $23, is the main tourist area in the city and where most visitors stay. Manhattan consists of many neighborhoods. New York City is very densely populated but is surprisingly dog-friendly. Although you can’t take your dog to a Broadway Show there are a surprising number of things you and your visiting or resident dog can do together.
