      A population de New York  included immigrants from England, France, Germany and the Netherlands – bem como slaves from Africa.

      In 1895, os habitantes das cities vizinhas (Queens, Bronx, Staten Island and Brooklyn) votaram a favor de uma integration. Junto com Manhattan, deixaram de ser cities e passaram a ser boroughs da “Greater New York”.

      Today more than 8 million people live in New York. Immigrants from Asia, Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America – dentre others – são 1/3 da population. The diversity and vibrant artistic life fazem de New York a maior cultural capital of the United States.
