What am I doing wrong in this challenge?

I thought that I was doing it correctly.

var newYork = {
  population: 100, 
  latitude: '40.7127 N',
  longitude: '74.0059 W'
newYork.population = 8.406e6;
newYork.country = USA;

USA is a string so it needs to be like this ‘USA’

Hi there! You're incredibly close here. You are only missing a pair of quotation marks around "USA". We're trying to create a new property on the newYork object called country and set it to the string "USA". Because the quotation marks are missing, it believes that it should be looking for a variable named USA which doesn't exist in this context. Simply adding the quotation marks causes this to pass the challenge.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
