Music
The music of New York City is a diverse and important field in the world of music. It has long been a thriving home for popular genres such as jazz, rock and the blues, as well as classical and art music. It is the birthplace of hip hop, Latin freestyle, doo wop, bebop, disco, punk rock, and new wave. It's also the birthplace of Salsa music, born from a fusion of Cuban, Puerto Rican and Dominican influences that came together in New York's Latino neighborhoods in the 1960s. With nearly 8 million people riding the city's subway system each day, New York's transit network is also a major venue for musicians. NYC is also home to the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, which is the largest performing arts center in the world and the Center is home to twelve resident organizations including:
Sports
New York City is home to the headquarters of the National Football League, Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, the National Hockey League, and Major League Soccer.

Theater
New York City's Theater District is an area in Midtown Manhattan where most Broadway theaters are located. It extends from West 40th Street to West 54th Street, from west of Sixth Avenue to east of Eighth Avenue, and includes Times Square. Many Broadway shows are world famous, such as the musicals Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, and many more. Along with those of London's West End, theaters in New York's Broadway district are often considered to be the most professional.
Film
New York's film industry is smaller than that of Hollywood, but its billions of dollars in revenue makes it an important part of the city's economy and places it as the second largest center for the film industry in the United States. While major studio productions are based in Hollywood, New York has become a capital of independent film. The city is home to a number of important film festivals, including the Tribeca Film Festival, the New York Film Festival and the Human Rights Watch Film Festival, as well as major independent film companies like Miramax Films.
Today New York is a global center for the international art market. The industry is clustered in neighborhoods known for their art galleries, such as Chelsea and DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) These areas have emerged as some of NYC's premier arts districts. The New York Festival of Light illuminated DUMBO, Brooklyn, with a collection of lighting installations and performances by artists from all over the world.
Queens is a rapidly flourishing art scene in New York City, serving as home to the largest concentration of arts institutions outside of Manhattan. Its abundance of industrial warehouses provide ample studio and exhibition space for many renowned artists, museums and galleries.
