Although New York City may have been the first well known city termed "The City That Never Sleeps", the city's subway system never closes, the term has been applied to other cities: Buenos Aires Chicago, in the film City That Never Sleeps Las Vegas Madrid Mumbai Sao Paulo Tel Aviv Tokyo New York City's free 25 minute Staten Island Ferry operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with boats leaving every 15 to 20 minutes during peak hours and every 30 minutes at other times. Moreover, in many "24 hour" cities plenty of eateries are open until 3am, several clubs are open until 6am and bars close 2am or a few hours later; the people who make use of these facilities, studies have found, are affected by sunrise and sunset. In other words: "that most humans aren’t as influenced by Earth’s light-dark cycle as we used to be" is not supported.
