New York is perhaps the most famous city in the world. It has amazing museums, nightlife, great restaurants and pretty much anything else you can dream of. It is also very, very expensive to live there.
Many people live outside of the city and commute in from Long Island and the towns along the Hudson River, from New Jersey on the other side of the river and even from Connecticut which is about an hour away by Train.
New York City has five boroughs or subdivisions and the most famous is Manhatten Island. Each of these, in turn, is divided into a series of neighborhoods or areas each of which has its own characteristics.
