Description

After 25 years of research and living in the Big Apple, I have discovered the secrets of what makes New York City "The Empire City"

1. Why do New Yorkers think that their city is the center of the universe? 

2. How did New York become the most diverse city on the planet?

3. Why does every New Yorker lust after fame, glory, and wealth?

4. Why is New York the most competitive city in the world?

5. Why is the city filled with monumental buildings in honor of great New Yorkers?

From the beginning of the Dutch colony, governor Peter Stuyvesant fervently believed that New Amsterdam (the former name of New York) was destined to become a New Jerusalem, a holy city on the Hudson River that would usher in the "end days." 

This myth was given the name “The Empire City” by President Washington and a succession of great New Yorkers elaborated on this myth and the city remains until today not just another American or world city, but THE city destined by God and Man to lead the nation and the world to greatness. 

Now you know why the city is the Empire City. 

“So let's get started on our voyage to discover what makes New York City unique among world cities and how it got to be that way!”

Dr. Ronald Brown
