...A Guide to Unique and Local NYC

This Manhattan neighborhood map shows you the heart and soul of New York City…the places New Yorkers live, eat, work, explore and the reason we all love living in New York City.

Every Manhattan neighborhood has a different vibe to it, with different shops, restaurants, cafés and attractions. These neighborhoods are almost all a 20-30 walk within (no stopping), but it might surprise you how easy it is to identify the character of each Manhattan neighborhood as you visit them – and how different things are from one block to the next.

The Upper West Side is a residential neighborhood filled with young professionals and families. It is a great place to stay if you are looking to avoid the heavy crowds of Midtown, explore Central Park, The Museum of Natural History, the Beacon Theatre, Lincoln Center, the West Side Highway and still be about 20 minutes from most of Manhattan.

Garment District / Fashion Center

The Garment District, also called the Fashion District or Fashion Center, is home to many of the world’s most famous fashion designers and showrooms. The area is an amazing resource for fabrics, beads and trims, however, unless you are trade, don’t expect to walk in off the street to designer showrooms. The best way to possibly get access to private showrooms is through a private tour or a NYC Sample Sale.
