Discover New York City
After booking one of our hotels in New York City, here's everything you need to know for your stay.
New York City is the biggest and most densely populated city in the U.S., with a population of almost nine million and over 20 million in its greater metro area. The city is often described as the world capital of culture, finance, and media. It’s also a global diplomatic center as the site of the UN. As many as 800 languages are spoken in the city, which is a major center of American immigration. More than three million residents of New York City were born outside of the U.S.
The city is located in a large natural harbor, where the Hudson River pours into the Atlantic. It’s composed of five boroughs: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island. Manhattan is an island connected to the other boroughs by bridges, tunnels, and trains, and in the case of Staten Island, a ferry.
Before the arrival of Europeans, the area was inhabited by the Lenape people. In the early seventeenth century, the Dutch established a trading post on Manhattan, protected from Native Americans by a wooden stockade. The English took control of the city in 1674 and renamed it New York, and during the American Revolution the city was the site of critical battles.
Starting in the late nineteenth century, waves of immigrants entered the city, passing the iconic Statue of Liberty. The city’s population increased many times over. During the Great Migration, African-Americans moved to the city in large numbers, and in the 1920s and 1930s the city was the backdrop for the Harlem Renaissance.
After World War II, the city’s population surged again thanks to an economic boom and the metro area continued to expand. In 1969, the Stonewall riots among the city’s gay community helped launch the modern-day LGBT movement. And in 2001, the city tragically lost more than 2,500 people in the 9/11 attacks. Today, the city continues to be a thriving global hub of entertainment and cuisine, with some of the world’s most visited sights and attractions.
