How to add a new property

"Add a new property".

I feel I am close but I am not close enough. I am not sure if this would be a message or not.

I tried newYork.join. but I am getting confused because it has "country" and "USA".

Please help.

script.js
var newYork = {
  population: 100, 
  latitude: '40.7127 N',
  longitude: '74.0059 W'
};

newYork.population = 8.406e6;
newYork.join = 
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>JavaScript Objects</title>
</head>
<body>
<script src="script.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

your answer was correct, but eventually, you have overdone it.

newYork.join = //why do you need this line, is it by mistake, you added this line
var newYork = {
  population: 100, 
  latitude: '40.7127 N',
  longitude: '74.0059 W'
};

newYork.population = 8.406e6;
newYork.country = 'USA';
