New York City is the most populous city in the United States. It’s also one of the world’s most diverse cities and has been since its founding as Dutch settlement in 1624.

With 8.5 million residents, it has more people than any other U.S. city except for Los Angeles (10 million). New York City is also home to one out of every seven Americans born outside of this country–and many others who came here as immigrants or refugees but have since become citizens through naturalization!

Pizza Slices

New Yorkers love pizza. It’s the most popular food in New York, and it’s a traditional Italian dish that has been around since the mid-19th century. Pizza is made with a doughy, round base covered with tomato sauce and cheese; you can find it on almost every street corner in New York City.

In fact, there are so many different kinds of pizza here that people even eat slices instead of whole pies! The term “slice” refers to how much you get for your money: A single slice costs about $2 USD (or less), but if you want two or three slices then your total will be higher than if you had bought just one large whole pie at first place–because then they would be considered “by-the-slice prices.”

Bagels with Lox and Cream Cheese

Bagels with Lox and Cream Cheese

Bagels are a traditional New York breakfast food. Lox is a type of salmon, which is often served on bagels with cream cheese. In fact, the combination of lox and cream cheese is so popular that it has its own name: “bagel and lox.” Bagels are often served with a side dish of cream cheese–and many people eat their bagels plain without any toppings at all!

The original Waldorf Salad recipe didn’t include any nuts or raisins–just apples and celery dressed with mayonnaise (the traditional version uses sour cream). But there are many variations on this classic dish now: some people leave out one ingredient or another; others add grapes or pineapple chunks; some like to use walnuts instead of pecans; others prefer raisins over currants…you get the idea!

Martini Cocktail

The Martini cocktail is one of New York’s most iconic drinks. It was first invented by Martini di Arma di Taggia in 1863, but it wasn’t until World War II that the drink became popular.

After the war, people all over America were looking for ways to unwind from what they had been through. The martini was perfect for this; it was easy to make at home and didn’t take much time or effort to enjoy.

Today there are many different variations on how people make their version of this classic cocktail–but no matter which version you prefer (dry or dirty), we think everyone should try one sometime!

Manhattan Cocktail

Cosmopolitan Cocktail

The Cosmopolitan is the quintessential New York cocktail. It’s a cosmopolitan city, after all, and this drink is one of its most iconic drinks.
