Manhattan, NY Apartments for Rent

It is a tiny island that’s been called the “Center of the Universe.” It is the Big Apple, the Crossroads of the World, the City That Never Sleeps. When people talk about New York City, odds are good that they’re really talking about Manhattan, the epicenter of American urban culture for nearly four hundred years.

The landmarks are known around the world: Central Park, Broadway, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, the Empire State Building. But what’s it like to actually live in Manhattan? By area, Manhattan is New York City’s smallest borough, but it is also the most densely populated-- if you choose to dive in, you’ll be joining a whopping 1.6 million people from all walks of life and every corner of the map. The options for dining, shopping, entertainment, and nightlife are among the most diverse on the planet, and the city’s famous public transportation system allows you to take full advantage of the truly endless possibilities no matter what part of the island you choose to call home.

Manhattan is divided into Downtown, Midtown, and Uptown, and each section has its own unique characteristics that will dramatically impact the experience of living there. Midtown is perhaps the most famous part of the borough, home to the Diamond District, Rockefeller Center, the Theater District, Times Square, the Garment District, Koreatown, Hell’s Kitchen, and Madison Square—bright lights and tourists are major components of the atmosphere here.

The East Side is separated from the West Side by 5th Avenue, and both offer prime access to Central Park as well as high-class cultural institutions like the Lincoln Center, the American Museum of Natural History, The Met, and the Guggenheim. Uptown is home to neighborhoods such as Upper Manhattan, Inwood, Marble Hill, Washington Heights, and Harlem, as well as Columbia University and The City College of New York.

Downtown includes Little Italy, Chinatown, the Financial District, Greenwich Village, NYU, and Tribeca. While rental rates in Manhattan tend to be famously steep, demand is extremely high, so apartments don’t usually stay available for long — find yours today if you “heart” New York.
