Manhattan is fantastic and I've loved living here for most of my life. The people are very friendly and kind, and there is a great energy to the place. Compared to everywhere else I've been I must say this is one of my favorite places in the world. Nothing beats looking out at a sunset over the flint hills! Manhattan continues to expand and I see great things happening in the future!

Manhattan has a wide range of jobs. There are many opportunities for students, including food, department stores, golf courses, movie theatre, etc.
Area rental companies could do better on pet polices...many only allow 1 pet per unit and when college kids each want their own pet this causes problems along with military families getting transferred here and bringing multiple pets. This town is definitely dedicated to their local high school and college sporting events.
