The average price for a 2 bedroom apartment in Manhattan is $1.4 million. (2004)
Home of the worst traffic on earth.
Beep Beep Motherfucker!

Manhattan-greatest town on Earth and a damn fine cocktail too.
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!

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!
E. I ain't paying over a million dollars for a STUDIO APARTMENT!!
one of the five burroughs of new york city. an island bound by the east and hudson rivers, manhattan contains most of the landmarks and sights that make new york city famous. it is comprised of many neighborhoods such as harlem, soho, the east village, wall street, that have unique personalities and attributes.
often, it is unfairly classified as being dirty and crime-ridden when it is actually one of the cleanest, safest (not including terrorism) cities in the world.
"manhattan has always been and will always be the center of the world"
One of the five boroughs of the City of New York, which is known as one of the top finiancal, entertainment, and social centers of the world. But this borough mostly consists of people who were not born in the city, but rather moved here under the delusion that life here is like Sex and The City or Rent. In reality it is a place where people come to work and/or drink, unless one is wealthy enough to live comfortably or enjoys slumming it knowing their parent's money will back them up.
Hey, we just graduated from some big liberal arts univeristy, so let's move to Manhattan and rent an apartment on 14th and C and pay 2,500 a month for one bedroom! Yes, mice included too! Wow, don't I have such hipster cred!
