New York is probably the U.S. city that i enjoyed to visit fo the most.. not only for the wonderful skyscrapers or the  numerous museums but because every Manhattan district is different from the other and visiting them it seems to be not in the same city.
Lower Manhattan is the southernmost part of the island of Manhattan. It includes Wall Street, City Hall, The Municipal Building, the Financial District and Ground Zero (the site of the World Trade Center).
Wall Street was the first permanent home of the New York Stock Exchange, and over time Wall Street became the name of the surrounding geographic neighborhood.
The City Hall is the oldest one in the United States that still houses its original governmental functions.
The Manhattan Municipal Building is a 40-story building built to accommodate increased governmental space demands after the 1898 consolidation of New York City from The Five Boroughs ( Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, The Queens and Staten Island).

Battery Park is a pubblic park from where ferries depart for the Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.
Up Financial District is the Lower East Side (Chinatown, Little Italy and Nolita) and the Lower West Side (Soho, Tribeca, Greenwich Village and Meetpaking park).
Chinatown is not so different from the other Chinatown in the big U.S. City but really nice is the Culumbus Park where Chinese old peolpe spend their time playing at chinese games.
About Little Italy, most of the neighborhood has been absorbed by Chinatown, as immigrants from China and other East Asian countries moved to the area. The northern reaches of Little Italy ceased to be recognizably Italian, and eventually became the neighborhood known today as NoLita, an abbreviation for North of Little Italy.
Times Square by night
Today, the section of Mulberry Street between Broome and Canal Streets, lined with Italian restaurants popular with tourists, remains distinctly recognizable as Little Italy.
TriBeCa (TRIangle BElow CAnal street), once an industrial district dominated by warehouses, has undergone a major revitalization. Warehouses were converted into loft apartments and new businesses emerged, making it into a mixed zoning neighborhood.
SoHo: The name is a blend of "South" and "Houston", from "south of Houston Street", and has no relation to the district called Soho in London, England. Before its incarnation as a trendy locale, it was known as the Cast Iron District.
The Greenwich Village. Currently, artists and local historians bemoan the fact that the bohemian days of Greenwich Village are long gone, because of the extraordinarily high housing costs in the neighborhood.
World Trade Center
Today Greenwich Village is home to celebrities and many young adults.
The historic Washington Square Park is the center and heart of the neighborhood, but the Village has several other, smaller parks.
Midtown is the New York City home to world-famous commercial buildings as Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall and the Empire State Building. Midtown encompasses many neighborhoods including Hell's Kitchen and Chelsea on the West Side, and Murray Hill, Kips Bay, Turtle Bay and Gramercy on the East Side. Places to visit in Midtown are: Times Square, Brodway and the Theatre District, U.N. Headquarter, Chrysler Building, Museum of Modern Art, St. Patric's Cathedral, Grand Central Terminal, New York Public Library, Madison Square Garden, Pennsylvania Station, Plaza Hotel, Bryant Park, Trump Tower,.. so there is a lot to see..
Central Park is a large public, urban park.
Wall Street
It contains several natural-seeming lakes and ponds, extensive walking tracks, two ice-skating  rinks, the Central Park Zoo, the Central Park Conservatory Garden, a wildlife sanctuary, a large area of natural woods, a 106 acre billion gallon reservoir, an outdoor amphitheater which hosts the Shakespeare in the Park summer festival, and grassy areas used for informal or team sports or set aside as quiet areas, as well as playground enclosures for children. The park is an oasis for migrating birds, and thus is popular with bird watchers.
Harlem, long known as a major African American cultural and business center. After being associated for much of the twentieth century with black culture, but also crime and poverty, it is now experiencing a social and economic renaissance. Apollo Theater is one of the most famous clubs for popular music in the U.S., and certainly the most famous club associated almost exclusively with African-American performers.
