The most well known of the boroughs of The City of New York, if asking an outsider. Often reffered to as 'The City' by residents of other boroughs of New York. Home of Broadway, Times Square, The Empire State Building, etc... also an area with a needlessly complex subway system in some areas, and a lack of subway in others. Culturally diverse, a place where the mexican food resturants are actually run by mexican people and have real mexican food. Where there is a risk of crime in any areas, the contrast between the various neighborhoods is very sharp. Also notable for it's exceedingly over-inflated property prices.
A. 1: Hey, let's go to New York!
2: Yeah! We can go to Manhattan! And... what else is there?

B. Hey, when school is done, wanna hop the Q to The City? We can go chill in the village!

C. I can take ten different trains to get to times square, but if I want to get to the east side below sixtyth, I have to take the six train and walk like crazy...

D. This food is real Chinise Food! Not psuedo american-chinise food! Sweet!

Manhattan, my friends, is not New York City.
However, Manhattan is one of the five boroughs of New York City, (the others being Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens and Staten Island.)
Many tourists and foreigners refer to only Manhattan as New York City, and at the the same time have never even heard of Staten Island.
Although Manhattan is well known to outsiders, the island that looks like a penis is not all New York City has to offer.
