The five boroughs of New York City consist of: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island. Of these, Manhattan is the most densely populated yet smallest in total geography, making it truly one of the toughest cities to live in (or to be able to afford to live in!) in the world.
Many consider Manhattan to be the center of New York City, if not the entire world. With its varied neighbhorhoods, blend of cultures, and seemingly endless options of cuisine, shopping, nightlife, and entertainment, it is the primary and most sought-after destination for many first-time New Yorkers relocating from all over the world, and a place many seasoned urban dwellers and professionals desire to make their home.
