Manhattan Living and Culture

The oldest and most densely-populated of the five boroughs is New York City. Manhattan is bounded by the Hudson River on the west and the East River on the east. Commonly divided into three different sections – Downtown (or Lower), Midtown, and Upper. Manhattan’s streets are for the most part, laid out in a strict grid plan, and making it easy for even newcomers to navigate their way through the city’s crowded streets.

Neighborhoods

Given Manhattan’s diversity, neighborhoods within the borough, are unique and fun to explore.  Many neighborhoods are associated with New York’s so-called “Bohemian” subculture, created by the number of artists looking for their big break in the Big Apple. Neighborhoods rich with artistic influence include Greenich Village, Alphabet City (made famous in the Broadway show “Rent”), the Lower Eastside, and the East Village. These neighborhoods are complemented nicely by upscale areas such as: SoHo and Noho and the Upper East and Westside, by far some of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the United States.
 
Harlem, having experienced a renaissance of sorts in the late 20th century, is benefitting from renewed interest and is home to numerous theaters and other arts centers.
 
Those who live in Manhattan thrive on its fast pace and rich culture. Walking the streets of Manhattan is a common and necessary means of transportation, while public transportation also covers the entire borough and whisks riders to surrounding boroughs as well.
 
New Yorkers have at their disposal plenty of places to unwind and relax. Expansive Central Park, one of the largest city parks in the country, is spread over 843 acres and attracts some 35 million visitors annually and has nineteen waterfalls throughout the park, according to the NYC tourist bureau. Locals love it too and head there not only to walk, bicycle, skate, or jog but also to enjoy the park’s pretty lakes and visits to the Central Park Zoo.
 

Other areas of the city, like Lower Manhattan, have strived to provide as much green space as possible for local residents and have begun to attract young families, with a desire to combine the convenience of city living with a healthy lifestyle for themselves and their children.
