New York City is the most populous city in the US and famously competitive. If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. As the headquarters for commerce, finance, media, art, fashion, technology, healthcare, entertainment and international diplomacy, NYC’s influence extends across the globe. In recent years, tech and new media industries have become big business particularly in “Silicon Alley’”, defined as Upper Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. With renowned cultural institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim, Lincoln Center and Julliard, Broadway Theater District, Rockefeller Center and the Empire State Building, the Big Apple is widely deemed the cultural capital of the world.
