Manhattan is about two miles wide and over 12 miles long. It contains most of the business, economic, entertainment and cultural sights of the city. A four-miles long by half-mile wide Central Park, located at the very center of the island, neatly divides the city into sectors. The southern part of the island is called “Downtown” and the section directly south of Central Park is called “mid-town”. Everything from the middle of the park to the northern tip of the island is usually called “Uptown”. The part of the island closest to Long Island is called the “East Side” and the part closer to the Hudson River is the “West Side”. The two neighborhoods lying on either side of Central Park are called “Upper East Side” and “Upper West Side”.

The numbered streets of Manhattan all run east-west beginning with First Street just above Greenwich Village, and extending all the way up to 218th Street at the far northern tip of Up-town. Avenues run north-south beginning with First Avenue on the East Side and extending to Twelfth Avenue along the Hudson River on the West Side. These numbered Avenues are interspersed with named Avenues such as Park Avenue, Lexington, Madison and Broadway. Broadway is a bit unusual as it starts out as a typical north-south avenue in the middle of the island downtown, but angles sharply to the west just below Central Park and continues on up the West Side to the top of the island.

Maneuvering within New York is relatively easy. You won’t need a car — in fact, a car will be more hindrance than help, as parking is expensive and in short supply. This is a mass-transit city. The subway system and public buses lines are an easy and inexpensive way of getting around the city. Taxis are easy to hail and reasonably affordable, especially if there’s more than one person in your party. And when the weather permits, biking and walking are always an enjoyable way to see the city.
