The Manhattan Island is bordered by the Hudson River and the East River, and it is only 3.5 km wide and 22 km long. The area is full of skyscrapers that form the characteristic silhouette of Manhattan. Some of the skyscrapers belong to tallests buildings in the world.
Manhattan Island is the home of the most attractive tourist destinations in the city of New York. In addition, the island is an important business centre (for example, the famous 5 Avenue ) and also a distinctive entertainment centre (world-famous theatres in Broadway Street) . The heart of the island is its southern part, called Lower Manhattan. It is known as the financial centre and it is famous for the Statue of Liberty , located on Island not far from the southern promontory of Manhattan. The once popular "Twins" (World Trade Center, destroyed by terrorist attack on 11th September 2001) used to be on the Lower Manhattan, too. There is the world-famous New York Stock Exchange in Wall Street, the stock exchange that is connected with all businesses around the world. The southern part of Manhattan is connected with Brooklyn on the other side of the East River with the Brooklyn Bridge.
Another important part of Manhattan is the Midtown with other main tourist destinations in the city of New York, for example, the tallest skyscraper in New York, 443 metres high Empire State Building , slavnou Time Square , St. Patrick Cathedral and Rockefeller Museum. The territory to the north from the Midtown is covered with the Central Park , oasis of green and peace in the middle of the bustling city. On the sides of the Central Park you may come across other interesting areas, the Upper East Side and Upper West Side with numerous famous shops, and also world-famous museums, for example, the Guggenheim Museum, the Metropolitan Museum, Frick Collection, American Science Museum or the Carnagie Hall . The Central Park borders on a not very safe Afro-American quarter named Harlem. At this part of Manhattan there is also Morningside Heights where the Columbia University is seated. You can move around Manhttan by taxi (the cabs are distinctively yellow) and the whole Manhattan is literally networked with the subway.
