Boston is the capital and most populous city of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in the United States and the largest city in New England. Considered the unofficial capital of the New England region, Boston had an estimated city-proper population of 596,638 in 2005. The city lies at the center of America's eleventh-largest metropolitan area known as Greater Boston, which is home to 4.4 million people. Residents of the city are called Bostonians. Through land reclamation and municipal annexation, Boston has expanded throughout the peninsula. It has become one of the most culturally significant cities in the United States, and is recognized as a global city. With many colleges and universities within the city and surrounding area, Boston is a center of higher education and a center for health care. The city's economy is also based on research, finance, and technology — principally biotechnology.
