New York City – Metropolis at Storms' Edge

The most populous city in the United States, New York, is a storied center for a tremendous spectrum of fields, including commerce, finance, and the arts, among many other endeavors. New York is also renowned for an ever-present natural element that has at times dramatically affected its inhabitants' lives: its weather.
