Why is New York the epicenter for COVID-19 in the US?

Why does New York State have close to half of the Covid-19 cases in the US? Is it because of NYC? If so, then why?

What ares the demographics of the infected? Are they predominantly poor? Are they predominantly non-english speaking?

I'm looking for a reason that would explain the disproportionate number of cases NY has compared to the entire country

I guess NYC is the largest US city and it seems to be the densest large US city as well. I didn't think it was that much different than places like Chicago but maybe it is different enough to make a difference

It still doesn't fair well against Mexico City (similar sized city but slightly less dense)
