  • New York is a city of extremes. With close to 8.25 million people, it's the most populous municipality in the United States. Its iconic skyline contains some of the tallest buildings in the world. Deep beneath its streets, the most extensive subway system on the planet transports millions of riders, 24 hours a day. With as many as 800 languages spoken on its sidewalks and nearly every cuisine imaginable available in its restaurants, New York also has to be among the most diverse cities anywhere. In honor of the greatest city in the universe and its many matchless features, we assembled the following slideshow of NYC superlatives. It may just be the most interesting thing you read all day. —Jonathan Zeller
