New York attract peopl from all over. Get on a subway in New York and

look at the newspapers that peopl around you are reading . One person is

reading a newspaper in Spanish , anouther in Chinese, yet others in

Arabic , Russian , Italian , Yiddish, and French . New York was always a

city of immigrants. It still is .


The are 5 boroughs in New York - Manhaptan , Brooklyn , Queens , the

bronx , and Staten Island. Brooklyn alone has so many people that if it

were a separate city , it would be the fourth largest in the United



Manhattan Geography.


Manhattan is an island just 13 miles long and 2 miles wide . It is the

centre of American finance, advertising , art theatre, publishing ,

fashion - and much more. The borough of Manhatten is what most people

think of New York, one of the most exciting cities in the world.


Manhattan is divided into the East Side and the West Side. The dividing

line is Fifth Avenue. So, for example , East 47th Street begins at Fifth

Avenue, as does West 47th Street.


Manhattan is also divided , wuth less exactnes, into Lower (Downtown),

Midtown and Upper (Up-town) Manhattan. As you go North, or uptown, the

street numbers get higher. Lower Manhatta refers to street numbers below

14th Street and Central Park, and Upper Manhattan to the renaming,

northern, part of the island.


The Financial District .


The Dutch were the first Europeans to settle Manhattan. To protect

themselves from attacs, they built a sturdy wooden wall. Although it`s

now long gone, this wall gave it`s name to a street in Lower Manhattan

and the street, in turn, became synonymous with American capitalism. The

street, of course, is Wall Street. The New York Stock Exchange and the

American Stokc Exchange are both in the Wall Street area. So are many

stokc brokers, investment blanks and others bank, and headquarters of

many large corporations.


To escape the commotion of Wall Street you can visit the nearby South

Street Seaport, an open area of low buildings on the East River. In

addition to many shops and restaraunts, the seaport has a museum.


Two good ways to get the larger picture of New York are to circle it in

a bout and to hover over it in helicopter. In the financial district,

thogh, there`s anouther way to see New York. The twin towers of the

World Trade Centre rise 1,350 feet above the city. There`s an

observation deck on the 107th floor of one of the towers.


Appropriately, the very first business deal in Manhattan was made in

what became the financial district. As every American schoolchild

knows, the Dutch bought Manhattan from the Indians, for the

rediculously low price of 24 dollars worth of beads and trinkets. There

is, however, another, less known side of this: evidently, the Indians

who had sold Manhattan did not themselves live there or in any sense own

it. The Dutch and the Indians alike walked away pleased.


The Lower East Side.


The lower East Side was originali an ellegant neighborhood. When New

York was the capital of the United States, Presedent George Washington
