New York is often called “Big Apple“. It is a world capital of culture, business, fashion, art and shopping. Major part is situated on the central island of Manhattan and four outer boroughs – Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx and Staten Island. Manhattan is surrounded by Hudson and East River and is divided into 3 areas – Downtown, Midtown and Uptown. You may think New York is very chaotic city. But the orientation is very easy here. The entire Manhattan reminds a rectangular chessboard which consists of wide avenues vertically and the streets horizontally.
