Pass or Fail Survey: Some New Yorkers Pass … Others Fail

How well do you know your city?

New Yorkers pride themselves on knowing everything about their city. 

But a new quiz about New York City gives an entirely different story.

Some 400 New Yorkers were stopped on the streets over the last three months and were asked 10 simple questions. Slightly more than half of those quizzed knew where the Empire State Building is located. And, how about Junior's cheesecake? Where did it come from? Take the quiz yourself, check out the answers and see how you compare to your fellow New Yorkers.
