When you're entrenched in the mountains of high-rise offices in midtown Manhattan, it's easy to forget that New York City is mainly made of water.

If you added up all of the city's rivers, bays, estuaries and channels it would be the sixth largest borough. It's thanks to these waterways that New York was able to experience such massive growth, as material goods were brought in from around the world.
