Curious about the city itself?
New York City, in the state of New York, has five boroughs: Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island. Out of those, Manhattan is the most densely populated one and it’s commonly described as the cultural and financial capital of the world. Surely, you know that the United Nations Headquarters is situated in Manhattan. Also, due to the infamous Wall Street of the Financial District of lower Manhattan, New York City has been considered as the leading financial center and the most economically powerful city in the world. After all, doesn’t the mere mention of the city make you think of Suits or Blue Bloods?
Regarding its geography, Manhattan is composed of Manhattan Island, Marble Hill and several smaller islands, such as Roosevelt Island, Liberty Island, Ellis Island, Randalls and Wards Island. Manhattan Island is divided into three parts, The Downtown, Midtown and Uptown, bordered by the Hudson, Harlem and the East River. Marble Hill, funnily enough, used to be a part of the Manhattan Island, however, due to the digging of the Harlem Canal, they’ve been divided.
We understand that you may have some trouble navigating the neighborhoods of the city, as they aren’t named according to any, particular, single method. Some received their titles due to their geographical position, such as the Upper East Side or the famous Soho, which refers to South of Houston. And then, some of the neighborhoods are named in an ethnically descriptive way, for example Little Italy or Harlem, the name of which comes all the way from the colonial era, as a reference to Haarlem, a city in Netherlands.
