Manhattan crowds its huge personality onto a 23-square-mile island at the
center of New York City. From the industrious financial district
surrounding Wall Street downtown, to eclectic, artsy midtown with its
thriving theater district, Greenwich Village, and the Bowery, to wealthy
5th and Park Avenues uptown, the city is a heady patchwork of
experiences. The green oasis of 843-acre Central Park is a peaceful
counterpoint to the bustle of the city. Bordering Central Park to
the east and west are upscale brownstones, shopping and dining, and an
array of attractions including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the
American Museum of Natural History.
