Manhattan - where New York's heart beats

This island is just one of the neighborhoods of New York City. However, Manhattan most closely resembles what most New York imagines are.

Manhattan - the heart of New York City

5 thoughts too "Manhattan - the heart of New York City"

  1. A nice summary of the most important neighborhoods of New York. Although I also find the neighborhoods outside Manhattan very worth seeing, Brooklyn for example.


    1. Yes, that's right, Anna. Through Brooklyn, I've always just driven through on the way to JFK airport. I have not seen much. New York simply offers a plethora of interesting places for which multiple trips are not enough.
