Dominating Metropolis:
“New York City dominates the economy of the state as the leading center of advertising, banking, finance, media and publishing in the U.S. If New York were a country, the state’s $1.4 trillion dollar economy would be the 14th largest in the world after South Korea.” - Forbes

New York Stock Exchange
“The New York Stock Exchange, one of the world´s leading equities markets and combined with the NYSE Group family of exchanges, trades more U.S. equity volume than any other exchange group. A listed community of more than 2,400 companies is taking on today’s greatest challenges at the NYSE because it is the hub for capital formation where those ideas are exchanged and valued, where companies are given the fuel they need to invest, create jobs and power progress.” – NYSE

Regional Logistic Hub:
“The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey builds, operates, and maintains critical transportation and trade assets. Its network of aviation, rail, surface transportation and seaport facilities annually moves millions of people and transports vital cargo throughout the New York/New Jersey region. The Port Authority also owns and manages the 16-acre World Trade Center site, home to the iconic One World Trade Center.” – PANYNJ

Port of New York and New Jersey
“It is the largest port on the East Coast, and the third-largest in the nation. In 2014, it handled 3,342,286 cargo containers, a 5.4 percent increase in total container traffic from 2013. The record volumes allowed the port to maintain its position as the busiest on the East Coast with nearly 30 percent of the total market share. The dollar value of all cargo that moved through the port exceeded $200 billion.” - PortNYNJ

JFK International Airport
“John F. Kennedy is one of the world's leading international air cargo centers. The airport offers nearly 4 million square feet of modern, state-of-the-art cargo warehouse and office space. The entire air cargo area is designated as a Foreign-Trade-Zone. JFK serves the world's key air cargo markets though a strong mix of long-haul, direct and nonstop all-cargo aircraft and wide-body passenger aircraft flights. During the year 2014, 422,415 flights, 53,254,533 passengers and 1,343,683 tons of air cargo passed through the airport.” – JFK International Airport

“In April 2015, Mayor de Blasio announced the release of “One New York: The Plan for a Strong and Just City,” a comprehensive plan for a sustainable and resilient city for all New Yorkers that addresses the profound social, economic, and environmental challenges ahead. The plan sets out a comprehensive blueprint for preparing New York City for the future.” – NYC Mayor's Office of Technology and Innovation

Smart City:
“New York has made a lot of the digital age. The city hosts a thriving tech sector with 300,000 employees -- on par with Silicon Valley -- and city government is praised for its use of analytics in evaluating all manner of programs. Its signature environmental initiative -- PlaNYC -- contains hundreds of objectives on everything from the number of breakwaters made from oysters to cubic feet of natural gas captured from sewage plants.” – CNN Money
