The title question for this entry does not have to do with temperature, it has to do with the international flavor of New York City. 40% of the people who live in New York City were not born in the United States. SIPA typically enrolls students that represent over 90 different countries. We also have many U.S. permanent residents enrolled each year so the number of countries students hail from is most likely well over 100 countries per year.
New York City has a 311 telephone line that is meant to provide government information and non-emergency services. A fact you may not be aware of, the line provides immediate access to translation services in over 170 different languages. How cool is that?
