- Manhattan Borough is the city, the administrative, business and financial center of all 5 boroughs of New York City. The city is world renowned for its massive collection of skyscrapers, cultural museums, Park Avenue, Central Park and the financial district.
- Park Avenue just like in the Monopoly game has some of the most expensive real estate in the world. For example, square footage for a Park Avenue address sell for several thousand per square foot.
- The high-rise expensive elegance of Park Avenue and the Upper East Side trails away into the well-known neighborhood of Harlem to the north and to the south Greenwich Village on the Lower East Side.
- Upper East Side Historic District is one of New York City’s largest districts with many historic brownstones and opulent apartment buildings.
- The Harlem district many people believe is a major population of African- Americans, that was true in the 1950’s but in the 2008 Census reported blacks were 40% of the population. Harlem has been undergoing gentrification steadily since than and some say the poorer residents are being priced out of their neighborhood.
- Greenwich Village on the Lower East Side was a rural village in the 17th century with a rather organic spontaneous street layout when the Commissioners Plan of 1811, decided on the grid pattern for the settlement on Manhattan. Greenwich Village was allowed to keep those streets that were already built up resulting in a modern neighborhood whose streets are dramatically different in layout from the rest of Manhattan. Many of Greenwich Village are narrow and some curve at angles which most people consider as charming and highlighting the historic nature of the neighborhood.
- Manhattan has more than any other small metropolitan area to offer in the way of historical sites, museums, things to do, parks to visit, places to live, places to work and of course all the wonderful stage plays showing on Times Square.
