Nestled between the East, Hudson, and Harlem Rivers, Manhattan is the heart of New York City. It is America’s most densely populated city, and with good reason. With a rich American history, vibrant cultural esthetic, top-notch entertainment, and numerous iconic attractions including Times Square, Central Park, the Empire State Building and Grand Central Terminal, Manhattan has become ‘America’s city’ in the eyes of the world.
The main hub of the New York metro area, Manhattan, like all of the surrounding areas, was bought from the Lenape Indians and exchanged hands (and names) between the Dutch and the British throughout centuries that followed until the United States of America was founded, becoming America’s original capital. Thanks to Alexander Hamilton’s policies and practices as the first Secretary of the Treasury, New York has remained an economic center since its inception.
After the Civil War, the rate of European immigration to New York skyrocketed, and Ellis Island was built to handle the influx. With the exploding population rate of people from all different backgrounds, compounded by the microcosmic nature of living on an island, Manhattan developed a culture all of its own, which lead to many major developments over the years, including revolutionary transportation systems such as the subway system and cultural events like the Harlem Renaissance.
