O New York City You Talk A Lot.
And it has a lot to talk about. Hands down, the Manhattan borough alone has more history, more diversity, more stories and more lessons than any other American town. Take one discrete area--and study it back over the past four centuries. The saloon where where you now talk, drink, revel and love was once the site of an orchard, a sprawling farm, a new development of private estates, a long-forgotten theater or a once-great newspaper's office.
