New York Challenge Woes...

Need to change the population size - shouldn't this work? I got stuck on this somehow.

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

newYork.population: 8.406e6;
script.js
var newYork = {
  population: 100, 
  latitude: '40.7127 N',
  longitude: '74.0059 W'
};

newYork.population: 8.406e6;

You are close! But your new line of code is not part of a declaration, it will be an assignment.

:point_right: The assignment operator is equal-sign (=).
