New York County Information
New York County shares the same boundaries as what most people call Manhattan, and this is the oldest of the five boroughs of New York City. The borough is primarily located on Manhattan Island, but does include several smaller islands, including Roosevelt, Liberty, Ellis and four other islands. This is one of the most heavily populated places in the world, and it is also one of the richest. Home to Wall Street, the New York Stock Exchange, and Times Square, Manhattan is one of the world's great financial and commercial centers, with millions of people living, working, or visiting this 23-square mile area.
Manhattan has several other famous landmarks as well, including Broadway, Grand Central Station, the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, and the Statue of Liberty. All of these are popular with visitors, as are the many cultural museums and attractions in the area. New York City as a whole has always been a haven for immigrants, and Manhattan is no different. As a reflection of this diversity, there are distinctive neighborhoods in the borough, such as Little Italy, Harlem, and Chinatown. Other areas, like Soho and Greenwich Village, are famous for their shopping and sidewalk cafes, while some locales are known for their ritzy quality, such as the Upper East Side. Central Park is another of Manhattan's most famous areas. This lush, landscaped 843-acre park is a National Historic Landmark and is a natural reprieve in an area that is wholly urbanized. Millions of visitors come to the park each year to jog, bicycle, boat, play, ice skate, and more.
