What more can be said about New York City? Also known as The Big Apple, Gotham, and the City That Never Sleeps, New York is the largest city in the United States and one of the largest in the world, with over eight million people in the city proper and more than 22 million in the greater Tri-State area, stretching from New Jersey across Downstate New York and into Connecticut. It is located at the centre of the Boston–Washington megalopolis, four hours southwest of Boston, 4½ hours northeast of Washington, DC, and two hours northeast of Philadelphia. Fittingly for a city of its size, there are many local transit systems in the New York Metro area, not only including state-, county- and city-run systems in New York but also state-wide agencies in New Jersey and Connecticut.
