About The usa

The United States of America (USA) is a federal country of 50 states covering a vast area of North America. By total area, the USA is the third largest in the world covering 9.8 million square kilometers with a 2016 estimated population of 350 million people.  

The capital is Washington D.C. The USA is a highly developed and the largest economy by nominal GDP. It is ranked highly in several measures such as human development, socioeconomic performance, productivity, financial market development and many more.   

New York City, one of US’s well-known cities, is about 300 square miles in size. However, a dedicated walker can cover miles by foot in just one day. In the city, one mile is roughly equal to 20 streets, with one avenue equivalent to three streets in length.  

During your walk in the city, you will notice that the Village and SoHo lack the super-tall skyscrapers that other sections of the city have. This is because the middle of the city is situated on soft soil that is not conducive to skyscraper construction.
