actually a county.

New York City has the most number of people living in it than any other city in the U.S, well over 8 million, and
they're all packed in... making NY City the most densely populated city in the country, and the world as well.
That poses a big challenge for researchers, especially when many sources simply cite "New York City"
as the location of the individual. So this site will be for all those pieces of genealogical data designated simply
as "New York City". If something says Brooklyn or Manhattan or any of the other boroughs, we'll put it
on those county sites, so check those sites as well as here.
York City consolidated
with the Counties of
and Richmond (Staten
Island) in 1874.
