Overall rating: 9

New York in USA has an area of 141,205 sq km. Its capital is Albany, while the approximate population is 18,976,500.

Having the Great Appalachian Valley in the east and Lake Chaplain in the west, the state also includes the Hudson River which flows southward into the Atlantic Ocean.

The culture of New York has been shaped by many years of immigrants. The starting point for many a cultural movement, New York is often called the cultural capital of the country.  The Afro-American Harlem Renaissance and the modern dance all gathered momentum in New York. From being the epicentre of Jazz Music in the 1940s, New York was the birthplace of hip-hop and punk rock in the 1970s.
