New York City

New York City has sooo many people. Actually, about 1 in every 38 Americans live in the city. The city was originally named New Amsterdam by the Dutch settlers who came in the 1620s. There are lots of places to visit, including the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island (where European immigrants entered the US). I tried ice skating at Rockefeller Center and saw a play in the theater district on Broadway. I even went to Wall Street where the big financial companies and the New York Stock Exchange is located! I rode in a subway deep underground, and visited each of the five boroughs – Queens, Bronx, Brooklyn, Staten Island and Manhattan. New Yorkers are fond of talking and love to tell stories. They talk loudly, quickly and interrupt each other. It was all very exciting, but now I am ready for a cat nap! Purrs, Gulliver
