There is truly nowhere else like Manhattan. It has the bright lights of Broadway, the skyscrapers of Midtown and the Financial District, the tree-lined streets of the West Village, stately pre-war apartment houses and narrow, tight alleyways all within a few miles of each other. Whatever you want in a neighborhood, chances are good you can find it here.
