Manhattan Reviews

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.

I visited Manhattan last summer. I stayed on 83rd Street in an apartment with three other people, along with my mom and sister. We flew on a plane, although the turbulence was not pleasant. I loved Times Square and I also visited this place called BurgerFi, which was amazing! The ride back home was terrible, since there was two delays. The plane was too hot and after that there was no gas. All in all, it was a great experience.
My favorite parts of Manhattan are definitely the Upper West Side, Upper East Side, and Washington Heights. I've lived on the Upper West Side for most of my life and I love it here. There are so many libraries and community centers and there's honestly a little corner of Manhattan for everyone. The Upper West Side has Central Park, Riverside Park, and the American Museum of Natural History--some of my favorite places in the world. The Upper East Side has a special place in my heart because it has Museum Mile. I LOVE Museums, and I have since I was a kid. Being a student in the city has great advantages because it gives either free or reduced admission to a lot of museums there. My favorite cultural zone in Manhattan though, is Washington Heights. I'm pure Dominican and when I can't be in DR, the Heights more than enough. The food is amazing, the people feel like family, and I get to feel right at home. I love Manhattan, and I can't imagine living anywhere else.
