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.
You have a lot of choices... Manhattan is filled with options for what to do. It all depends on your situation: traveling alone? As a couple? With kids? Traveling with …money? Trying to spend the minimum? Are you a student? How long are you staying? Some examples of what Manhattan does well: * Museums * Bars (sports, jazz, alternative, hip, pubs) * Dance clubs * Art galleries * Theater (Broadway, off-Broadway) * Parks (Central Park is the most famous but there are others) * Shopping (all kinds of shopping, too) * Food: there are tons of options for all kinds of cuisine and prices * Just walking around can fill your day with hours of fun

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.

There is no such thing as the Manhattan River (in New York, anyway). I'm sure there is at least one Manhattan River, somewhere else in the world, but there is no Manhattan Riv…er in New York. There are three rivers that flow around Manhattan Island: the Harlem River, the Hudson River, and the East River. (However, the East River is not a true river, but an estuary, or a tidal strait: unlike a true river, it connects to the ocean on both sides. It flows south from the Long Island Sound, down the east side of Manhattan and the west side of Queens and Brooklyn, and into the Atlantic Ocean). Another interesting fact: the Hudson River is actually a fjord. It is the only fjord in North America. There is also the Bronx River, which flows through the Bronx (NOT around it). The Bronx is the only New York City borough that has a river flowing through it.

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.
It was sometimes called a Turf Cocktail
