Installation of elevators. Manhattan - full of skyscrapers of people


Manhattan is the most famous area of ​​New York, which is its "heart". The island of Manhattan was opened in 1609 by the English captain Henry Hudson (by the way, in honor of him, the river dividing the states of New York was named). It stretches for 21 km along the coast of the Hudson River. Often, speaking of New York, US residents have in mind Manhattan - the main cultural and financial center of the whole country.

It is almost impossible to get lost in Manhattan, all the streets are numbered from south to north, and quarters are numbered from 1 to 16 from west to east. Such an architectural breakdown looks like the idea of ​​a rectangular grid and is perfectly visible on the map. Manhattan is conditionally divided into three parts: Aptown (Upper), Middletown (Middle) and Downtown (Lower).
It is with the city of Downtown that the tourists who come here begin their journey, in which the most famous and longest street of Manhattan - Broadway originates. It is home to numerous shops, shopping centers, banks, restaurants, theaters and attractions. This is the stock exchange of New York, and City Hall - the local city hall, and the Brooklyn Bridge - a great engineering structure, and Herald Square, and much more.
