A city of stark contrasts and deep contradictions, New York is perhaps the most fitting representative of a diverse and inclusive nation. It is located at the mouth of the Hudson River in the northeastern section of the United States. The Hudson, St. Lawrence, Delaware and Niagara rivers all form parts of its boundaries. Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island are the five boroughs that make up this city; each exhibiting its own flare and appeal. Being one of the largest and the most influential American metropolises, it is the most populous and the most international city in the country.
The Statue of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty, a gift from the people of France, is one of its most iconic symbols. It arrived to the United States in 214 crates which were then assembled and unveiled in the New York Harbour in 1886.
The Central Park, a masterpiece of landscape architecture, is New York’s largest urban park and one of the largest parks in the world, covering an area of 843 acres. It is home to artificial lakes, waterfalls, wooded areas and meadows. Its main attractions include landscapes such as the Ramble and Lake, Sheep Meadow, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir and the Hallett Nature Sanctuary.
New York City
New York City, being one of the largest cities in the United States, is home to a diverse population with a wide range of language needs. For many of the Deaf and hard of hearing individuals in this city, American Sign Language (ASL) is their primary mode of communication.
