look up any word, like blumpkin:
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.

In Manhattan, the only ones left are the super rich and the fucking nobodies.
Don't sweat it, Jake. It's Manhattan.

Manhattan is most sweetest, prettiest person on earth. She sometimes lures men in to her heart and has a big ass. She's sexy and has the prettiest hair, and the best sense of humor
"I wish I had some Manhattan."
"Damn, Someday I'd wanna be manhattan."

To be legit. When something works out really well or is awesome. Used in suburban D.C. slang.

To shorten the word, 'Hattan' is a substitute. 'Hattan' is used more commonly throughout the suburbs
First Person: "Yo, dude. My parents said I could go with you tomorrow."
Second Person: "Manhattan! It's gonna be so tight man."

Easily the most overpriced, and overpopulated place on the planet. Wanna see what its like to squeeze 1.6 million people into a 22 square mile radius? Then come to Manhattan, only $794612374510451230 to rent a small studio a month.

Most of Central and lower Manhattan consist of expensive, bland, soulless yuppie infested hellholes like the Upper East Side, Upper West Side, Yorkville, Batterty Park City, Chelsea, Alphabet City, and more.

Upper Manhattan consist of ghetto hellholes like Harlem, Washington Heights, and Inwood. You would think considering how expensive it is to live here that the place wouldn't be filled with criminals, but unfortunately NYC has the most ghetto trash out of any city in America.
I just won the lottery, now I just need to win 87 more times to have enough to pay the rent for my closet sized studio in Manhattan.
