Manhattan Is a Wonderful place to live, affordable can be a little bit high sometimes, but overall it is a nice place to live in. I'm in the 11th grade and my middle school and elementary school was a great time. In Manhattan, and you are the new kid in school, you will easily be able to make friends, there are snobby people here and there, but most people were nice. I lived in East 20th Street by Peter Cooper Village was amazing. Wish I could finish my 8th grade year in Manhattan. It was the best ever!

Manhattan is filled with all the people around the world. Good fashion and restaurants. If you want to go to Italy and experience Italian cuisine, Little Italy is the best choice. SoHo is where all the fashion blooms. No one judges your look and your taste, everyone is welcome to have their own specific look. Arts! Don't forget about the arts. I think New York City is the art capital of the world. Manhattan is filled with art galleries and museum. Art is everywhere in Manhattan.
Growing up in Manhattan was definitely the best part of my childhood and teenage years. Having such amazing schools to go to right near me was great as well as having the ability to go anywhere you want at any time with just the swipe of a MetroCard! Now with the Q train coming to the Upper East Side, traveling has been a breeze.
