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 Greenwich 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
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.
