In 1997, New York City expanded their territory by obtaining the four Burroughs surrounding the island of Manhattan. The growth of New York, did not cease at the expansion of the city’s border- the whole population has grown exponentially. New York City has grown by over 1 million people since 1990. With a July 2015 population of 8,550,405, New York is the most populous city in the United States, more than twice the size of the second largest city, Los Angeles. With such a high amount of people living in one city it only makes sense that New York real estate continues to expand with sky scrapers.
