The City of New York, is the most populous city in the United States and the most densely populated major city in North America. Located in the state of New York, New York City has a population of over 8.1 million within an area of approximately 830 kmĀ².

Nicknamed "the Big Apple", the city attracts large numbers of immigrants, with over a third of its population foreign born. Moreover, it attracts people from all over the United States, who come for its culture, energy, cosmopolitanism, and economic opportunity.

The city is a centre for international finance, fashion, entertainment and culture, and is widely considered to be one of the world's major global cities with an extraordinary collection of museums, galleries, performance venues, media outlets, international corporations and financial markets. It is also home to the headquarters of the United Nations.

This time, I haven't had much time to enjoy the entertainment and culture, as I've spent half of my stay in the Permanent Mission of the State of Qatar to the United Nations, attending a meeting of the UN Alliance of Civilisations hosted by Her Highness Sheikha Mozah Bint Nasser Al Missned, the Consort of the Emir of Qatar and Chairperson of the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development.

This was a new experience and one more which will be associated to New York on my mind. For me, New York will remain as the best representative of both Heaven and Hell on Earth. Nothing in-between. And I guess this is why I love it so much!
