New York is a metropolis, the largest city in the USA, also nicknamed the Big Apple. It consist of Manhattan, the core of the New York city, Brooklyn , Bronx and Statue an Island.
For centures Ellis Island was the entrance gate for millions of emigrands from all over the world. The Statue of Liberty offered by the French people stands there as a symbol of democracy. New York is also the birth place of uncle Sam, the nickname for the typical citizen of the USA.
Therefore, New Yorkers have a tendency to look down on the rest of America as being rather primitive, saying that Manhattan is an island off the coast of America. New York is a dream of American life, by its sky-scrapes, the Philharmonic, Bronx- the heart of jazz, the Museum of Natural History, and so forth.
Times Square, like Wall Street and Fifth Aventue, is one of those New York addresses that is famous the world over. Its main claim to fame is the massive neon billboards which have led historians to argue that modern mass adversiting was born here. Yet, Times Square is also the heart of New York’s theatre distings, 44 legitimate theatres- Tennessee Williams and Arthur Miller were producing their best work- otherwise known as Broadway. As of that wasn’t enough, the Square is home to THE NEW YORK TIMES.
