Spotlights of Manhattan
Manhattan is much-loved for its huge variety of diverse neighborhoods, homes, businesses, and cultures, all juxtaposed onto a thriving urban center. Around every corner, along each new street, is something new to discover—beautiful historic buildings, upscale shopping, eclectic mom-and-pop shops, hole-in-the-wall eateries, thriving entertainment districts, rich cultural hubs, and so much more.
Manhattan might be an urban metropolis, but it’s also home to a variety of beautiful parks. The iconic Central Park encompasses over 30% of all parkland in the borough and features miles of paths, two ice rinks, a wildlife sanctuary, sporting areas, playgrounds, and more. Parks throughout the borough offer a diverse array of amenities, including playgrounds, greenways, sports courts, picnic areas, and waterfront trails.
Manhattan is known for its high-demand high-price real estate, much of which is high-end luxury. The market encompasses a diverse array of housing styles and sizes, but rowhouse townhomes are common throughout may of the borough’s neighborhoods. There are also newer and more modern high-rise condos and co-ops as well.
Where Is Manhattan?
Arts and culture
Thanks in part to its incredibly diverse culture and rich history of art-focused movements like the Harlem Renaissance, Manhattan is known as a cultural hub that truly knows no bounds. It is, of course, home of the archetypal Broadway show, considered by many to be the highest form of professional theatre in the US. The Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts also houses the Metropolitan Opera, the NYC Opera, the NY Philharmonic, the NYC Ballet, and the Juilliard School, among other smaller organizations. World renowned museums can also be found here in Manhattan—including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Frick Collection.
Sports and events
Manhattan is the city that never sleeps, which means there’s always something happening—a concert, a parade, a sporting event, a festival or celebration… anything and everything. The borough is particularly well known for its iconic street parades, like the famed Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Other popular events include the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and New York Fashion Week. Manhattan is also home to various pro sports teams, including the New York Knicks of the NBA and the New York Rangers of the NHL, both of which play at Madison Square Garden.
Manhattan is the financial and economic epicenter not just of New York City, but of the state, the country, and even the world. Business hours bring almost 1.5 million commuters to the borough, largely to work in white-collar industries like finance, tech, and communications. Manhattan is home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange, the tech hub known as “Silicon Alley”, and some of the nation’s major broadcasting companies, like ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, and Univision. It’s also features over 500 million square feet of office space, including many of the nation’s corporate headquarters, and Midtown Manhattan is among the largest central business districts in the world.
