DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT NEW YORK?


  1. New York's population is ranked 3rd in the U.S. - Total 19,378,102 (2010 Census)

  2. There are 62 cities in New York. The largest city in the state and the most populous city in the United States is New York City, which comprises five counties, the Bronx, New York (Manhattan), Queens, Kings (Brooklyn), and Richmond (Staten Island). New York City is home to more than two-fifths of the state's population.

  3. New York is home to the largest African American population and the second largest Asian American population in the United States. In addition it is home to the largest Puerto Rican, Dominican and Jamaican American populations in the continental United States. The New York City neighborhood of Harlem has historically been a major cultural capital for African-Americans of sub-Saharan descent, and Bedford Stuyvesant is the largest such population in the United States.

  4. The University of the State of New York oversees all public primary, middle-level, and secondary education in the state, while the New York City Department of Education manages the public school system in New York City. In 1894, reflecting general racial discrimination, the state passed a law that allowed communities to set up schools for children of African-American descent. In 1900, the state passed another law requiring integrated schools.

  5. New York's gross state product in 2007 was $1.1 trillion, ranking third in size behind the larger states of California and Texas. If New York were an independent nation, it would rank as the 16th largest economy in the world behind Turkey. Its 2007 per capita personal income was $46,364, placing it sixth in the nation behind Maryland, and eighth in the world behind Ireland.

  6. New York City has a humid subtropical climate. Weather in New York is heavily influenced by two continental air masses: a warm, humid one from the southwest and a cold, dry one from the northwest. The winters are long and cold in the Plateau Divisions of the state. The summer climate is cool in the Adirondacks, Catskills and higher elevations of the Southern Plateau.

Hello,
I found your website on line. I'm am in need of a young (21 to 40 year old) soul singer who sings pop music. This is a amazing opportunity for someone who has talent and is committed and is mature.

Must have reliable transportation and be well rounded. This is an exceptional opportunity to perform in the Capital District with one of the oldest, most popular band in the area. We have 2 or 3 performances per weekend. Any assistance you could give me would be appreciated.

Sincerely,
Paul

Currently, he serves as the Coordinator for the NFL Legends Community, serving as a central resource for players to learn about programs and benefits available to them, while supporting various charities.
