Manhattan

Manhattan is the place everyone thinks of when they think of New York City. Bound by the Hudson and East Rivers, this island (along with some of the smaller islands around it) is iconic for a lot of reasons. The financial and fashion capitals of the world, Manhattan is full of hustle and bustle, just the way the locals like it.


Atmosphere of Manhattan

If you can make it in Manhattan, you can make it anywhere. Living in Manhattan, will give you some of the greatest working, educational, and entertainment possibilities in the country, if not the globe. You have to be ambitious to make the most of this island. But, for individuals seeking excitement and adventure, there’s no place better.

There is no other borough in the United States that has added more to the collective cultural consciousness than Manhattan: Wall Street is the financial capital of the world, Broadway changed the way theater is made, and Harlem is a driving force for civil rights. The residents of Manhattan change the world, and they always do it in a stylish way.


Transportation Options in Manhattan

MTA (Metropolitan Transit Authority)—Subways and Buses

The MTA is the city's subway and bus system. It's cheap, eco-friendly, it’s a terrific way to see the attractions across the five boroughs, and runs 24/7. Download the MTA app for maps and information on train delays.

For passengers with vision, hearing, and/or mobility impairments, consult the MTA's accessibility handbook and list of accessible subway stations for further information.


Subways

The subway is the most convenient and rapid method to get about the Manhattan borough. Riding the subway is also a great way to blend in with the locals.

Quick facts:

  • Subway trains run seven days a week, 24 hours a day.
  • For $2.75 (the cost of a single ride on a pay-per-ride MetroCard), you may travel around the city and transfer to different subway lines as needed, as long as you don't exit via a turnstile.
  • On local lines, subway stations on the same line are typically 8 to 10 blocks apart. Stops on express trains are usually farther apart.

Buses

Buses are a picturesque method to view the city and go to places that aren't close to a metro stop. It's also worth mentioning that public transportation is at the heart of New York City's attempts to become more environmentally friendly, with an increasing number of hybrid and electric buses on the road.

Quick Facts

  • The MetroCard is accepted on all city buses.
  • Before boarding, check the route sign on the front of the bus to see if it's making all stops or merely "limited" stops as limited buses don't make all stops along the route.
  • Many buses run 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so make sure you check to see whether your route runs overnight. At the bus stop, a timetable and route map show when the bus will come and where it will proceed.
  • Depending on the time of the day, buses operate every five to fifteen minutes, or at longer intervals.

Manhattan Safety

New York is constantly ranked as one of the safest metropolitan areas in the country and Manhattan is one of the safest boroughs. Violent crime is extremely rare and any part of the city that residents or tourists would want to go to will be nice and safe.

Manhattan is also home to some of the country's best hospitals like New York Presbyterian, Mt. Sinai, and NYU Langone. All of these hospitals, and their various branches, are easily accessible should an emergency occur.

History and Fun Facts of Manhattan

Before the Dutch settled the island that is now Manhattan, it was inhabited by Native Americans, which is where the island got its name. Manhatta was a Lenape word roughly meaning “Place where we gather wood for bows.”

The area was not mapped until Henry Hudson came across the island in 1609. A permanent European presence began in 1624 in New Netherland, beginning with the founding of a Dutch fur trading settlement on Governors Island. In 1625, construction was started on the citadel of Fort Amsterdam on Manhattan Island, in what is now Lower Manhattan. This establishment is recognized as the birth of New York City.

In 1664, the English conquered New Netherland and renamed it “New York” after the English Duke of York and Albany, the future King James II. The citizens of the former New Netherland were able to retain their previously attained liberties, including freedom of religion, under the new colonial English rulers.

During the American Revolution, Manhattan, along with the other boroughs, was under British control after several early losses at the Battle of Long Island. However, General George Washington came back to reclaim the city in 1783.

After the war, New York quickly grew as an economic center. By 1810, it had surpassed Philadelphia as the largest city in the United States, largely due to Alexander Hamilton’s policies and practices and with the opening of the Erie Canal in 1825 which connected the Atlantic port to markets in the midwest.

In the 19th Century, the rate of immigration from Europe grew steeply. Following the Civil War, New York became the first stop for immigrants seeking new lives in the United States.The construction of the Brooklyn Bridge in 1883 established connections to Brooklyn across the East River, which in turn created a large and more diverse area of land and lead to the 1898 deal that would make Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island part of the Greater New York City.

The construction of the Subway, which opened in 1904, bound the city together, as did the additional bridges that were built across the East River into Brooklyn. NYC became the most populous city in the world, overtaking London in 1925 which had reigned as such for a century.

The 1970s brought job losses due to industrial restructuring which caused NYC to suffer economic problems as well as rising crime rates. The city began to undergo dramatic policy changes in the 1990’s leading to financial prosperity and a significant decrease in crime. Today Manhattan is one of the safest places in the world.
