Marble Hill was originally part of Manhattan Island; but the Harlem River Ship Canal, dug in the late 19th century to improve navigation on the Harlem River, separated it from the remainder of Manhattan, and eventually the part of the original Harlem River channel separating Marble Hill from the Bronx was filled in.
Manhattan Island is 21.5 km (13 miles) long and 3.7 km (2.3 miles) wide (at its widest point).
Manhattan is connected by bridges and tunnels to New Jersey to the west, and three New York City boroughs: the Bronx to the northeast and Brooklyn and Queens on Long Island to the east and south.

As it is coterminal New York County, Manhattan is the most densely populated county in the United States of America.

So there's a good reason why Manhattan is located outside the predominantly white homosexual neighbourhood of Church and Wellesley.
The men at Club Manhattan do not fit the image that rappers -- and much of mainstream gay society -- have of the gay fl male as a sex object or a flamboyant drag queen who performs for white audiences.
Club Manhattan operates as a secret society, a community specifically for fl men concerned about their privacy.

 Wired New York Forum - View Single Post - NYC Neighborhoods
Viewed by some as one of the most affordable areas in Manhattan despite its Upper East Side pedigree, Yorkville has seen a continuous 10-year building boom that has kept inventory plentiful, although prices have begun to rise, as they have throughout the rest of the city.
The area attracts fresh-out-of-school graduates looking for affordable studios and one-bedrooms in the side street walkups or high-rise apartments west of Second Avenue on 79th, 86th or 96th Streets, as well as families with young children who want to be near East End's Carl Schulz Park.
A neighborhood bursting at the seams with residential high-rise development, Yorkville is often associated with the towering edifices that, according to old-time residents, make the area around First, Second and Third Avenues somewhat cold and forbidding.

 Eagles Travel Baseball
The Manhattan Eagles travel baseball team emerged from a group of NYC families who are passionate about baseball and dedicated to providing talented young athletes in the local community with the richest baseball experience possible.
Although there are many all star baseball teams within the Tri State area, the Manhattan Eagles are unique because the team and its members are NYC based, where available fields (whether for games or for practices) are difficult to secure and even more difficult to get to.
The Manhattan Eagles’ hard work this year will culminate by the opportunity to compete for the National title in Cooperstown, NY in August, 2006.

To an outsider, Yorkville's pulse could be clocked at geriatric speed, aside from the occasional poodle primped and pepped from a day at Biscuits & Bath (1535 First Avenue), a doggy spa.
Boundaries: Subject to interpretation, but many agree that 96th Street caps Yorkville to the north, 79th Street to the south, Third Avenue to the west, and East End Avenue to the east.
Early Sunday, an ambitious junkster might consider cruising Yorkville's tonier addresses (East End Avenue, near Gracie Mansion) to filch through dunes of glorious, virtually untouched, junk: ski gear, vanity mirrors, mahogany bookshelves, and, on rare occasions, oil paintings.

 A Shadow Over Yorkville - June 13, 2005 - The New York Sun - NY News
Walking along the eastern edge of Yorkville, I am reminded of Faulkner's comment that the past is never dead; it is not even past.
Though few areas of Manhattan have more efficiently pulverized the material evidence of its past, the spirit of the Second Avenue El malingers here like a toxic trace, engendering monstrosities several generations after its removal.
Which is to say that the El, which went up in the 1880s and was dismantled as part of the war effort in 1942, is ultimately responsible for the latest crop of poor architectural product that has arisen or is arising not only along the avenue it once dominated, but also along First Avenue.

You can be less worried about using a realtor in JC as they generally charge much less of a commission than in Manhattan.
