Good to know

The New York State Capitol of Albany is home to the equivalent of 1% of the city’s population. Nearly 1,000 different languages are spoken in the city. And almost half of the households speak a language other than English.

The city became home to the headquarters of the United Nations in 1952. The building itself is considered International Territory. On April 25th, 1901, New York became the first state to require license plates. But the government didn't issue them. The onus was on drivers to make license plates themselves out of whatever materials they chose.
