5 thoughts too "Manhattan New York - 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.
