      Manhattan is the ‘financial and cultural center of the world’. It’s divided in three parts: Downtown, Midtown and Uptown.

___Downtown Manhattan está repleta de historic districts pois foi onde New York City começou (note que in all historic districts the street signs são Brown e não Green como em outras partes da city).

      But Midtown e Downtown Manhattan escondem um segredo: areas que, no passado, foram abandoned, viraram zona de prostitution and after foram totally re-invented.

     Estes neighborhoods têm uma very original history. Alguns, como the Meatpacking District, Chelsea and West Village ainda preservam some old characteristics; outros, como SoHo, TriBeCa, NoLiTa and Dumbo (fora da island, mas ligado a ela através da famous Brooklyn Bridge) têm names montados com initial letters, indicando que passaram por replanejamento urbano and ampla revitalization.
