New York City Facts
-The population of New York City is roughly 8.245 million. This hectic city has a lot of traffic, people, and never ending noise. It is "The City That Never Sleeps"! There is always commotion and it has a lot of well known landmarks. The most well known is the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. New York also has an unemployment rate of 8.8 percent and is a crazy, but fun place to live!
New York City's Relation to Simplicty
New York City is always a place full of action. There is never a dull moment in the city. Traffic is consistent and there are hundreds of stores and retaurants that are always extremely busy. My philosophy of simplicity is not evident in New York City. The city is a place with lots of things going on at the same time. When in the city, you have to always be on your toes and paying attention. There is no time to sit and relax, it is always go, go, go. New York City is not a simple place, but instead it is the exact opposite, sophisticated.
