New York

Also known as “The Big Apple”, New York is the most populous city in the United States. Other than being one of the most famous (if not “the” most famous) cities in the world, New York has also been a center of innovation for commerce, finance, media, art, fashion, research, technology, education, and entertainment, for this reason The Secretariat chose this location as a home for GCMUN.
