Manhattan in one single word: Powerhouse
Urbane, Sophisticated, Formal - adjectives that easily apply.
It's a juggernaut of design that pulsates endlessly.
It's where I went to school, worked for many years and I love it dearly,
for how could you not be endlessly inspired?
The Art, The Architecture, The Parks, The Fashion....
It's all available in massive quantities here, and though, maybe a little cliche
it's still very iconic - so why not click on the opening to
a little 'Moon River' then begin to scroll down to scratch the surface
of just what made, and makes Manhattan so incredibly special.
