Made up of five boroughs, New York City has a population of 8.1 million people, making it the largest city in the United States. Often called "the city," Manhattan is the most densely populated borough, and on business days, the population reaches a whopping 5.28 million people. It is home to the financial capital of the world with the NASDAQ, New York Stock Exchange and United Nations.
A major benefit to living in "the city" is having access to virtually everything at any hour of the day. With attractions from dining and drinking to theater shows and live music, Manhattan is at the center of the action in New York City.
WALK. Madison Square Park, landscaped by Ignatz Pilat, a disciple of William Grant and Frederick Law Olmstead, offers people-watching benches, shady strolls through verdant plantings, a dog run, and elegant public monuments.
DRESS. Ann Taylor, Armani Exchange, Kate Spade, Club Monaco, and many more are only steps away.
EAT. The Flatiron District is the epicenter of Danny Meyer's restaurant empire, with one of his eateries just a short walk in almost any direction: Maialino (Italian), Blue Smoke (BBQ and jazz), Gramercy Tavern (classic American), Union Square Café (American-Italian), or Shake Shack (burger-and- shake stand).
INDULGE. Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop has been "raising New York's cholesterol since 1929" with its old-fashioned tuna melts, diner breakfasts, and Jewish classics like pastrami Rueben’s and tongue-on-rye.
