New York—often called New York City to distinguish it from the State of New York, of which it is a part—is the most populous city in the United States and the center of the New York metropolitan area, the premier gateway for legal immigration to the United States and one of the most populous urban agglomerations in the world. A global power city, New York exerts a significant impact upon commerce, finance, media, art, fashion, research, technology, education, and entertainment, its fast pace defining the term New York minute. Home to the headquarters of the United Nations, New York is an important center for international diplomacy and has been described as the cultural and financial capital of the world.
Situated on one of the world’s largest natural harbors, New York City consists of five boroughs, each of which is a separate county of New York State. The five boroughs – Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, the Bronx, and Staten Island – were consolidated into a single city in 1898. With a census-estimated 2014 population of 8,491,079 distributed over a land area of just 305 square miles (790 km2), New York is the most densely populated major city in the United States.

Know what the weather will be like when you arrive or are having your vehicle picked up. The state is home to a wide range of weather and depending on the season it could be hot and humid to nearly blizzard like conditions – knowing what you’re getting into will make the transition much easier.
Prepare for the road conditions. The roads in the state can take a toll on your vehicle. Be sure to have your car or truck looked over and get any small mechanical issues taken care of. It’s easier to do it now than to wait until you arrive and then have something go wrong!
Remove personal belongings prior to transport. Take out all personal belongings and remove any add-on’s to the car such as bike racks and anything that extends past the “normal” dimensions of your vehicle. This will ensure safe transport of your vehicle and those around it.
