An International City
The ramifications of New York City's illustrious international heritage permeate nearly every facet of modern-day Manhattan life. The air resonates with multilingual conversations, both within and beyond the numerous ethnic pockets peppering the city; Chinatown, Little Italy, Little India, and Little Brazil are only among the best known. Myriad specialty eateries cater to every palate, from Burmese to Ethiopian cuisine. The United Nations, headquartered in Manhattan, is a focal point for global politics where history is made on a daily basis. In every
sense, New York City is a world-class destination.
