New York Quick Guide
Culture. Commerce. Central Park. The City of New York is world-renowned for all this and more, but to the nearly 8.2 million people who call it home, "The Big Apple" is all about the attitude, the pride of living in what they consider the center and capital of the world.
Known by many monikers, this "city that never sleeps" offers non-stop, round-the-clock opportunities to experience the sights and sounds that make it unlike any destination in the world. From art and architecture to Broadway and Battery Park, Gotham City residents will tell you there's no place like New York.
The city prides itself on having the best of everything: the best restaurants, best museums, and the best city park ever, Central Park. For visitors and residents alike, the Big Apple has something to appeal to everyone.
To contact City Hall, residents in the 212 area code may dial 311, or (212) NEW-YORK (639-9675) for those outside of the city, for access to many city officials, departments and services.
