  • New York was originally the capital of the USA but only for one year.

New York City

  • There’ s a windowless skyscraper on Thomas Street. It was built in 1977 and is surrounded by conspiracy theories and mystery. It is said to be the most secure building in the world: it was designed this way to be protected from nuclear fallout.

  • There are no Walmarts in New York.
