Ah, the wonderful city of lights. The city that never sleeps, in other words. And it’s true. If you’re looking for auto shipping to NYC, here are some things that may interest you about the city.

It lies about halfway between Washington D.C. and Boston, MA, and it’s located at the mouth of the Hudson River, which feeds naturally into the Atlantic Ocean. This feeding as helped the city grow into a major trading city, and much of New York is built on the three island of Manhattan, Staten Island and western Long Island, thus making land scarce and promoting a high population.

What’s interesting about NYC is that although it lies on roughly the same latitude as Naples and Madrid (in Europe), it has a humid continental climate which results from a prevailing wind pattern bringing cool air from Canada into the city.

Summers are generally warm and humid with the winters being cold and chilly, and the city’s long-term weather and climate are directly affected by the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (the Atlantic Current) that flows through the Atlantic Ocean. However, the resulting change in the current has resulted in much more severe weather, with heat waves and hurricanes in the summer and stunning blizzards in the winter.

But don’t let this discourage you from your auto shipping decision, because there is so much in NYC that you can’t possibly let a little bad weather get you down! Read on and find out what’s so cool about New York City.

New York City (NYC) itself is made up of five different boroughs, which in turn forms and unusual government that is in place to administer the five counties that make up the city.

What’s interesting is that if each borough were to form their own cities, four of the five (Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and the Bronx) would be among the ten most populous cities in the U.S.

The five boroughs are the Bronx, home of Yankee Stadium, Brooklyn, which is known for its cultural and ethnic diversity, Manhattan, home to the cities largest skyscrapers, Queens, which is the largest borough land-wise, and Staten Island which is made up of mostly suburbs. Each of these boroughs are different in their own right, making auto shipping to NYC both fun and exciting.

Another wonderful thing about NYC is the vast culture. Many cultural revolutions have began in the city, including the Harlem Renaissance, which established the African-American literary canon in the U.S. with the likes of Langston Hughes and Maya Angelou. It was the center of jazz in the 1940’s, abstract expressionism in the 50’s, and the birthplace of hip hop in the 1970’s. Punk rock was influential in the 70’s and 80’s, and prominent indie rock bands have come out of NYC.

Baseball is the sport that is most followed by citizens of NYC. There have been 14 World Series championship series between NYC teams, commonly called the Subway Series. The two teams that reside currently are the NY Yankees and the NY Mets, and there are two NFL teams as well: the NY Jets and the NY Giants (officially called the NY Football Giants), and both teams play their home games in Giants Stadium in New Jersey. All the more reason to get your auto shipping to New York, NY situated today.

What’s really neat about NYC is that it’s one of the safest cities in the United States. Violent crime in NYC has dropped 75% in the past twelve years and the murder rate is at its lowest since 1963. Although crime rates spiked in the 80’s and 90’s due to the crack epidemic, it fell rapidly as the NYPD adopted CompSat and broken windows policing. Now, it’s truly a great place to raise the kids, another reason auto shipping to NYC is a great idea.

The NYC public transit system is the largest in the world. One in three users of mass transit in the United States live in NYC and its suburbs, while in the rest of the country only 10% of people use public transit. Also, only 25% of people who live in Manhattan own a car, while nationally 8% of people walk or take the bus.
