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.
Review 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.
New York is Manhattan. You are never alone, you are always on a date with this city. It gives you opportunities, it gives you a future! All you need is to be patient and to know what you want. Unexpacted things happen every day. Good and bad things. But that's what makes you stronger, wiser, better. If you survive here, you'll do it anywhere. Here is so much taste, style and life by itself, that makes you to believe in anything. And what is most important - in yourself.
