The Empire State Building even has its own zip code.

The Big Apple also has the most subway stations in the world with 472.

According to New York City's Transit Authority, around 5.7 million people ride the subway each weekday. It's made up of more than 665 miles of track which, laid end-to end, would reach Chicago.

For those who prefer above ground transportation, there's no shortage of taxis in the city either.

NYC has more of those than any other US city as well. Nearly 13,600 of them according to the Taxi and Limousine Commission.
