0.8 miles wide
I believe this is Transportation Management System, built by the Supply Chain Lords - Manhattan Associates.
Approximately 2 miles (3.22 kilometers). According to the measurements I got using Google Maps and a tape measure, Manhattan Island is exactly: 2.06 miles (3.32 km) or 10,888.…88 feet (3,318.93 meters) wide at 33rd Street 2.06 miles (3.32 km) or 10,888.88 feet (3,318.93 meters) wide at 40th Street 2.02 miles (3.25 km) or 10,666.67 feet (3,251.20 meters) wide at 47th Street 2.02 miles (3.25 km) or 10,666.67 feet (3,251.20 meters) wide at 52nd Street 2.10 miles (3.38 km) or 11,111.11 feet (3,386.67 meters) wide at 58th Street
According to the measurements I got from Google Maps, it's about 3750 to 4500 feet (1143 to 1372 meters) wide, depending on where you measure (the piece of land occupied by th…e Stevens Institute of Technology sticks out like a lump on your head). It's about 3750 feet (1143 meters) where the Stevens Institute is. The river is about 4500 feet (1372 meters) wide at the rest of the Hoboken area. For reference: 5280 feet (1609 meters) equals a mile.
No. Brooklyn forms the western part of Long Island and once was a separate city before joining Greater New York in 1898. Manhattan is an island, separated from Brooklyn …by the East River and bounded by the Hudson and Harlem Rivers; until 1898 Manhattan alone formed New York City.

Manhattan is New York County
Yes, Manhattan, the borough of New York City, is an island.
Manhattan, the borough of New York City, is located at the southermost point of New York State (along with the rest of New York City), at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. The…re is also a city in northeast Kansas called Manhattan, and a village in northeast Illinois called Manhattan.
The elevation of Manhattan ranges from 1 to 80 meters (3.3 to 265 feet). The Related Link below lists the elevation in meters for 71 points around Manhattan. The average elev…ation of Manhattan is reported to be 29 meters (97 feet).
The Manhattan Project was the top secret military endeavor to build, and detonate the first atomic bomb. It was based at Los Alamos, New Mexico and headed by Dr. J. Robert… Oppenheimer. The completion came on July 16, 1945 when the team exploded the first Atomic Bomb (Gadget) on the St. Augustine Plain at what is now known as the Trinity site, in central New Mexico. This site is open to the public for escorted tours twice a year: the first weekend in April and the first weekend in October. Development of the first U.S. nuclear weapons (Gadget, Little Boy, Fatman) was led by the U.S Army and Los Alamos National Laboratory. Dr. Oppenheimer was the lead scientist, General Groves was the commander and executive in charge. The project employed a large number of people in other places such as Oak Ridge, Tennessee and Hanford, Washington, where the fissile materials (80% enriched uranium at Oak Ridge, plutonium at Hanford) were made. It was the WWII codename from 1942 to 1947 for the creation of the Atomic Bomb which was a Joint Canadian, United Kingdom, and United States effort under the control of the US Army Corps of Engineers. It was termed the Manhattan Engineering District to mask the large expenditures needed. In truth it had little to do with the island of Manhattan or with Manhattan Kansas. It involved over 130,000 people and spent two billion US dollars at such diverse locations as Oak Ridge Tennessee, Columbia University, the University of California Berkeley, the University of Chicago, Hanford Washington, Wendover Utah, Wright Field Ohio, Muroc Army Airfield California (now Edwards AFB), and Los Alamos New Mexico. The military Manhattan Project ended in 1947 when its responsibilities were turned over to the newly created civilian Atomic Energy Commission.
It was sometimes called a Turf Cocktail
I think people just refer to it as NY. -->NY refers to New York State. NYC refers to New York City, which consists of five boroughs--Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island… and Manhattan. Manhattan is sometimes written as MHTN or MNHTN used.
A wide on is a joking term for a man to brag about the width of his penis or if he says he has a small penis he can say he's got a wide on, meaning his penis is wider than it …is long. Sometime my penis does not get as long as normal when hard but it is always wide. The penis is a remarkable organ, mine ranges in size during the day from 1" long to as much as 8" long after forplay. The head is always wide, it amazes me how big it gets. I'm in my sixties and need a little help from my lady to get it up. She sucks my nipples and it's like the nerve is directly connected to my penis. Anyway folks, a "wide on" is a joking term. Dream on - a 'wide on' refers to sexual stimulation of the FEMALE genitals. Like male genitalia, a woman's sexual parts respond to erotic stimuli by receiving an increased blood flow - this causes the labia to swell and spread, hence 'wide on'... Any other attempt at an explanation is lame and limp dicked.
Note that neighborhoods in New York City do not have precise boundaries. They often overlap with each other, and some neighborhoods are sort of sub-neighborhoods of others. Fo…r example, Morningside Heights overlaps with Harlem, and Koreatown overlaps with Chelsea. Yorkville and Sutton Place are sub-neighborhoods of the Upper East Side. Alphabet City is a sub-neighborhood of the East Village, and the East Village, in turn, is a sub-neighborhood of the Lower East Side.
