The pulse of New York City is in Civic Center. This is where the city breathes and breeds; the laws are either made or upheld here. When a New York sports team wins a championship, a celebratory parade ends right in the middle of City Hall Park. On July 9, 1776, George Washington read the Declaration of Independence to a large crowd here. The area's Park Row was once known as “Newspaper Row” and was essentially the birthplace of modern journalism. Today, Civic Center remains critical to the everyday functioning of the city. Many municipal and government buildings dominate the infrastructure – buildings such as the FBI headquarters; the city’s court system and the NYPD headquarters. Plenty of people (some 20,000 or so) call this 10-block neighborhood home. The boundaries of Civic Center start at Worth Street to the north, the East River to the east, Ann Street to the south and Broadway to the west.
