"Manhattan" is the name of: 1. An alcoholic drink 2. A city in the U.S. state of Kansas 3. An island that is one of the 5 boroughs of New York City 5. A U.S. government proj…ect ("The Manhattan Project") during World War 2.
Manhattan is New York County
Peter Minuit, the Dutch leader in 1624 bought the Island of Manhatten for $24 (in trinkets and beads) from the American Indians in fear that they might attack the settlers the…re.
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.
Peter Minuit, but I don't know that he was a governor.
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
Peter Minuit, the 3rd Director General of New Netherland purchased Manhattan from the Lenape for 60 guilders in 1626.
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.
Yes Peter Minuit was the person who "bought" Manhattan from the Native Americans.
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.
