Manhattan borough guide 

Manhattan borough guide 

With five distinct boroughs, New York City is one of the most diverse and populated cities on earth. Yet no borough is as unique is that of bustling Manhattan. Home to more than 1.6 million people, Manhattan is full of unique neighborhoods that all bring something special to the table.  

Upper West & Upper East Side 

In the northern part of Manhattan, you’ll find the Upper West Side and the Upper East Side, both known for their classic New York City architecture and close proximity to Central Park. 

The Upper West Side, known as being the cultural and intellectual center of Manhattan, is where you’ll find landmarks such as Columbia University and the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. 

While you're exploring the Upper East Side, you’ll find The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Park Avenue. Both the Upper West Side and the Upper East Side are known for their abundance of lavish clothing boutiques, fancy restaurants, and lively nightlife. 

Midtown 

A little further south, is Midtown, the most central neighborhood in Manhattan and home to many of New York City’s most iconic landmarks such as the Empire State Building, Times Square, and Rockefeller Center. Perhaps the most touristic area of Manhattan, Midtown is the one section of Manhattan that never truly sleeps. 

Every night, whether it’s Monday or Saturday, you can find dramatic productions, concerts, and stand-up comedy. While you’re in Midtown, remember to visit the extravagant New York City Public Library. It is truly a sight to behold. 

Little Italy 

While Little Italy may be a small neighborhood compared to Midtown, it’s also one of the most culturally unique and significant. The area, known for being populated by the first Italian American immigrants that moved to New York City, is known for Mulberry Street where you’ll find all of the most authentic Italian restaurants and bars.  

Chinatown 

Neighboring Little Italy is the sprawling area of Chinatown, where the largest population of Chinese Americans in the world live. Extremely significant culturally, Chinatown is growing every day and has begun to take over Little Italy almost entirely. If you’re in the mood for some good Chinese food, don’t forget to visit one of its more than two hundred restaurants, many of them on Mott Street. 

Tribeca 

Tribeca is known as being the home to some of New York City's best-known celebrities such as Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio who brought much attention to the neighborhood with the Tribeca Film Festival. Tribeca, in the southern part of Manhattan, is one of New York City's biggest up-and-coming neighborhoods.
