New York City is an amazing place, filled with many incredible sights. There are several unique things about the city that you can find nowhere else, such as the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty, both of which are iconic symbols throughout the world. That is what makes the city so memorable. New York City is one of my favorite places, and in this essay you fill find out why.
New York City’s old slum neighbourhood, the Five Points, was notoriously known for its vice and crimes. The first organized crime group in New York City was the Forty Thieves which was led by Edward Coleman, started in 1825, in the back of a grocery store. The Dead Rabbits were an Irish gang in the Five Points area, and are most known for the riot they caused in 1857. The Eastman Gang were a Jewish group in the Five Points area, which began in the late nineteenth century, and were the rival of the Five Points Gang. The Five Points Gang was another group, started by Paul Kelly and included future famous mobsters. In Five Points, where most of New York City’s crime started, it also started some of history’s most notorious gangs, and mobsters.

I finish carving the tally into the leather strips wrapped around my forearm, the wind attempting to whip my braided hair into my face. I lean back against the brick building, staring at each tally.
On the day of March 6 1979 everything seemed normal in the scenic European country called Poland. Passerbys walked along the streets, bundled up in warm clothes, birds sang their melodies, children were in school, adults were working, and children were born. One of these children, however, would go on to make a name for herself almost halfway across the world on a small and somewhat reclusive island in America.
There’s me, standing on the sidewalk of some nondescript city street in the Bronx. It’s summertime, right smack in the middle of July, and the towering brick buildings surrounding me allow no breeze. The clamor of New York is encompassing; I feel the city’s rhythm in my bones, it’s heartbeat thump, thump, thumping under my feet. Right now, I feel like crying. I am talking to an old man, Ahmed. Ahmed is an Indian immigrant who stopped at the soup-kitchen-on-wheels (actually: The Relief Bus) I am volunteering at. We stand under a tree planted close to where the Bus is parked. Around us, dozens of homeless people, many of whom don’t speak a word of English (as the Bronx is mainly poor immigrants), eat their soup and bread. My fellow volunteers
My minor insight is New York City as the financial capital of the world. New York’s thriving economy is one of the main reasons that it is a global metropolis. Not only is NYC an economic capital, but it is also a cultural capital of both the United States, and the world. NYC is made up of millions of immigrants (about 36% of the total population) who have been able to assimilate into the American lifestyle, and act as a resource for the growth of our economy. NYC’s diversity has benefited our city by producing talented, hard-working citizens, which can provide an example for many other cities around the globe. New York’s cultural identity has helped shape our city, by allowing

The book is set in New York City and focuses specifically on immigrant women and their families as they adapt to both cultural and social changes that influence their daily lives. The methodology of research used was ethnography and the observation of families in their natural state to better understand the idea of the birth weight paradox amongst the immigrant population.
shoving each other to get the first breathe of “American Air.” I held the children close to me as we winded up the many flights of stairs. My heart beat was increasing at each step I took, for it was such a thrill. It was a great joy to watch the little one’s expressions as they too were as excited as I was. We stepped outside and walked a ways following the crowd as we all slowly entered a large building. There was a sign hanging above the entrance that said “ Ellis Island.”
While carefully reading through this reading, one idea in particular stood out to me over everything else. That idea is Adam Gopnik’s view of the “Old Times Square, New York” being superior to the newer, more modern Times Square. Gopnik tends to speak in past tense throughout the reading referring to the mostly to the older Times Square and comparing it to the current day Times Square.

In a little neighborhood, we all know and love called Union Square has a history that would be unknown to the naked eye. The park has undergone redevelopment multiple times in hopes of bettering the neighborhood. Within the little area, there is shopping, varieties of food, all kinds of entertainment, and of course, places to rest. Even though there is not the same overwhelming amount of stimulation as Times Square, Union Square has still become a big tourist attraction Rather, all along the outskirts of it are different neighborhoods we’re all familiar with, such as the Flatiron District and Greenwich Village. As Union Square underwent re-design and gentrification, so did the outer neighborhoods, hiking the rent and making it harder for
