Greetings Infomaniacs,

New York is the third most populous state in the United States after California and Texas. Of its population of 19 million, a little over 8 million live in New York City alone.

In fact, about 1 in every 38 people in the U.S. lives in New York City, and more people live in New York City than in Australia and Switzerland combined.

Enjoy!
