New York is a global centre of international finance and politics. Many of the world's largest corporations are headquartered here. The United Nations has its headquarters in New York, and most countries have a consulate here. This city's influence on the world is hard to overstate, as decisions made within its boundaries often have impacts and ramifications across the globe.


Nicknamed "The Big Apple", NYC is at the centre film, music and fashion. Manhattan is home to many world-class museums, art galleries, and theatres, and is the heart of the "city that never sleeps".
