Yisrayl Details the Second Babylon…
Revelation 16:20, says, “And every island fled away…”
New York City is a multi-island city.
The reader must be aware not to confuse this three-part city with the city, which is the seat of the beast (Revelation 17:9).
The seat of the woman is built on seven hills (mountains). That city “reigneth over the kings of the earth.”
This latter description fits none other than Rome, which sits on seven hills, as proven in Chapter 8.
This city made of three parts, New York City, is the second Babylon.
It is part of the last beast which came up out of the earth (Revelation 13:11) and has two horns—two religious powers, Catholic and Protestant. Again, the reader is advised to reread Chapter 4 for this proof.
The Basic Everyday Encyclopedia gives information on New York City:
New York, city, SE NY on NY Bay at mouth of Hudson R. 365.4 sq mi including water area, 299 sq mi land area; pop 7,891,957. The largest city and financial and comm’l center of the US, NY is the focal point of a huge metropolitan area (1950 census, preliminary total 12,831,914) which includes parts of NJ, Westchester and Rockland counties. Long Island, from which thousands of commuters come daily.
As a cultural and educational center with great art galleries, musical organizations, museums, universities, schools, places of entertainment, shops, hotels, parks, botanical gardens, libraries, characteristic nationality sections, NY is without parallel.
It’s magnificently situated natural harbor, with 771 mi waterfront, is the greatest in the US, handling 40% (by value of the nation’s foreign commerce. It is the world center of finance and trade and its industry produces 10% (by value) of the nat’l output; mfg clothing (25% of US total) and fur goods (90%); ptg and publishing (focal point of most US publishers); varied food processing, metalworking, mfg drugs and chemicals, textiles, scientific equipment; auto assembling, ship bldg, repairing.
Served by 12 RRs (4 into center of city), 4 airports, truck lines and interstate bus lines, the city’s internal transportation is handled by a vast (but inadequate) network of subways, surface cars, fleets of taxis, bridges and express highways; there are several vehicular and RR tunnels.
There are 130 hospitals and large medical research centers. NY’s history dates from a Dutch settlement (earlier visited by Henry Hudson, 1609, possibly by Verrazano, 1524) when Peter Minuit of the Dutch West India Co purchased Manhattan from the Indians, reputedly for $24 worth of trinkets; called it New Amsterdam; British seized it in 1664, renamed it for the Duke of York.
NY was US cap 1789-90, and Washington was inaugurated at Federal Hall, now a nat’l monument. Its growth was rapid after the Revolution. Its financial greatness dates from the establishment of a stock exchange (1792) and Bank of NY (under Alexander Hamilton 1784).
Completion of Erie Canal (1825), linking NY to Gr Lakes region, and bldg of RRs, stimulated growth further. By the mid 1800’s, great waves of European immigrants had congested the city and deplorable slums were established.
