We Love New York

Over eight million New Yorkers live, work, and play here.

New York City is where the Hudson River meets the Atlantic Ocean. Manhattan island is densely populated and among the world’s major commercial, financial and cultural centers. There are also The Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island.

New Yorkers are conservative and promiscuous, hardworking and productive, cynical and fearless, genuine and unadulterated, spenders and prosperous, shrewd and unscrupulous, sloppy and elegant, academic and literary, loners and popular, casual and fashionable, rich and powerful, well-fed and fasting, chilling and hardworking.

New York City is known by many nicknames— “The Big Apple” “The City that Never Sleeps” “Gotham” and many others.


The city is well known for its illustrated and often topical covers, its commentaries on popular culture and eccentric Americana, its attention to modern fiction by the inclusion of short stories and literary reviews, its rigorous fact-checking and copy editing, and its global journalism hub.

There's no other city on the planet with an energy that can compete with New York. The fast pace, the buzzing traffic, the hustle and bustle of our people, the 24-hour life, and the creative spirit make NYC one of the most vibrant places on earth.

This NYC subway station sign says it all and this is why New Yorkers are known for straight talk about politics, and social issues.
