Why do the manholes steam in New York?
Steam is still used for some power and heating in New York, the bigger steam plants can send their 'excess' steam to smaller plants via underground pipes - the steam rising up from the streets is just some of it escaping on it's travels - that's the answer I got anyway when I asked Google the same question! Answer it's also because of rainwater etc. falling onto the hot steam pipes, thus creating more steam that you can see from the manhole covers.

Because they are meant for a man to go through them
Because it is a hole in a street meant for workmen to climb down to check the sewers. A hole for a man is a manhole.
Well, in July of 1840 Samuel Cunard crossed his ship, the Brittania, in 11 days and 4 hours. And by 1901, the German liner the Deutschland, could cross the Atlantic in und…er 5 days. I'm sorry this answer is not exact, but I hope you get the main idea. Sources: BBC - History - British History in depth: Victorian Technology

The New York Central Streamliner JAMES WHITCOMB RILEY was inaugurated late in 1941. The locomotive was a streamlined steam locomotive originally used on the MERCURY. The… cars were 4 BUDD stainless steel coaches and three rebuilt heavyweight cars reconstructed by NYC Beech Grove Shops. This train continued in service till replaced in the late 1940s by an all-new BUDD streamliner. NYC Hudson locomotives (steam) replaced the Pacifics in the 1940s. The Hudsons would run the train until about 1954. After that date, diesel locomotives were the usual power

New York's famous steam seen billowing out of various manholes and sewer grates is the excess from an elaborate underground steam system that buildings - both residential and …commercial - can make use of for heating. And since it's Manhattan, of course, it isn't free, but is a paid utility. This steam system is part New York's infrastructure that is continuously being up-dated, though sometimes not quickly enough. From Wikipedia: "On July 18, 2007, a steam explosion sent a geyser of hot steam up in a 40-story-high shower of mud and flying debris that rained down on the crowded streets of Midtown Manhattan. It was caused by the failure of a 24-inch underground steam pipe nstalled in 1924 near Grand Central Station. The towering cloud of billowing steam rose higher than the nearby 1,047-foot (319 m)-tall Chrysler Building and left a crater about 35 feet (10 m) wide and 15 feet (4 m) deep. The escaping steam shook nearby office buildings, causing many occupants to immediately evacuate. A 51-year-old New Jersey woman, who worked a block from the site, died of a heart attack suffered while fleeing the disaster area. 45 people were injured,with two injured critically. The most seriously injured victims were a 23-year-old man from Brooklyn who was scalded over 80 percent of his body by the 400 °F (204 °C) steam and had to be put in a medically-induced coma, and his passenger, a 30-year-old mother of two, who was being driven back to Brooklyn after her car broke down. A witness reported that the tow truck was lifted 12 feet (4 m) by the escaping steam, higher than a nearby city bus."
