The City That Never Sleeps (nickname)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The City That Never Sleeps is a well-known nickname for New York City that was popularized by Frank Sinatra, in the Theme from New York, New York's words:

  • I want to wake up in a city that never sleeps
    And find I'm a number one, top of the list ...[1]

Although New York City may have been the first well known city termed "The City That Never Sleeps",[2][3] and the city's subway system never closes,[4] the term has been applied to other cities. Here is a list, in alphabetical order, of cities that have also been called "the city that never sleeps":[5][4]

Other services for those awake

New York City's free[14] 25 minute Staten Island Ferry operates 24 hours a day,[15] 7 days a week, with boats leaving every 15 to 20 minutes during peak hours and every 30 minutes at other times.[16][17]

Moreover, in many "24 hour" cities plenty of eateries are open until 3am, several clubs are open until 6am[3] and bars close 2am[4] or a few hours later.

The people who make use of these facilities, studies have found, are nevertheless affected by sunrise and sunset.[18][19] In other words: "that most humans aren’t as influenced by Earth’s light-dark cycle as we used to be" is not fully supported; there is an observed annual shift for "a stretch of three or four months" and "then, the process reversed direction".[20]
