NYC is considered one of the most popular cities in the world for a variety of reasons. New York has a civic superiority, expansive art and culture scene, and historically, it has always been considered an incubator for everything innovative—be it sartorial, architectural, or technological. Below is a list of what makes NYC popular, and enables it to stand out from other cities in the US.

Additional noteworthy buildings include the Twin Towers (its absence has been filled by the One World Trade Center), and the Woolworth Building. These are structures that have assisted in helping cement Manhattan’s supremacy as the home of the modern day skyscrapers since the beginning of the 20th century.
