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.
