S., is situated in the mouth of the Hudson River. There are 5 boroughs in New York Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island. Here situates General Staff OON. Harlem Another feature of New York population is the vast number of Negroes living in Harlem, which is the most densely populated section of the city. The houses in Harlem are in worse conditions than anywhere else, yet rents are higher than in any other part of the city. Manhattan When people think of New York one of the most exciting cities in the world - they mostly think of its borough of Manhattan. Manhattan is an island just 13 miles long and 2 miles wide. It is the center of American finance, advertising, art theatre, publishing, fashion - and much more. Comparatively few of New Yorkers live in Manhattan, although the majority spends a considerable part of the day in this centre of business life. Here Broadway begins, here is Wall Street and Stock Exchange filled from ten to three with a crowd of businessmen. This is the financial district, the heart of America. New York Skyscrapers New York is the city of skyscrapers. New York's first skyscraper - the Flatiron Building - was built in 1902. Twenty stories high it towered over the other buildings of its time. The most beautiful and famous of the skyscrapers of that period are the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building. The World Trade Center or the " Twins" was designed by Minoru Yamasaki and built as headquarters for the international business. On September 11, 2001 skyscrapers collapsed after the terrorist attack on the WTC, when two planes were hijacked and flown directly in its Twin Towers. Over two thousand people were killed in this terrorist act. The Statue of Liberty The Statue of Liberty National Monument, located on Liberty Island in New York Harbor, is one of the most heavily visited monuments in America. The colossal figure of a woman with uplifted flame across the entrance to the New World is a symbol of America to many people, but it was conceived as an expression of French republican ideals. Brooklyn Bridge Opened in 1883, it still ranks among the world's greatest suspension bridges. Walk across for a fine view of Lower Manhattan and the harbour. Central Park and the Metropolitan пѓ� The price of land in Manhattan has turned the island into a sea of concrete. Fortunately for the New York residents they have got Central Park. This huge park in the middle of the city was designed in the 1850s by landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted. пѓ� The Metropolitan Museum of Art, with huge collections of art from around the world, is the most important museum in the United States. Its collections include more than two million works of art from prehistoric through modern times and from all areas of the world. Thank you for attention!
