When did people begin to call New York City 'Manhattan'?

Manhattan is the name of the island that New York City was originally on. It was named thus by the Dutch after the Indian tribe from whom they purchased it in 1626. They founded New Amsterdam there and the English changed the name to New York when they took possession in 1664. Over time the city has grown beyond the bounds of that island to include Staten Island, Cony Island and part of Long Island but Manhattan has always been the most populous and most famous part of the city. Michael Montagne

The 2000 census (U.S. Census Bureau, May 30, 2002) shows the following data for New York City:

Geographic Area -- Total Population

Bronx County -- 1,332,650

Kings County -- 2,465,326 (Brooklyn)

New York County -- 1,537,195 (Manhattan)

Queens County -- 2,229,379

Richmond County -- 443,728 (Staten Island)

What the distance between Westchester New York and Manhattan New York?

Here's the thing: you know how Manhattan is shaped a little bit like a hand that is pointing upwards? There's that long, skinny finger sticking up at the north end?

Westchester is north of Manhattan. The two are separated by the borough of the Bronx, and the skinny river that separates Manhattan from the Bronx, which is called the Harlem River. Actually, you can even take the subway to Westchester, kind of. You take the Uptown 2 or 5 trains to the last stop in the Bronx, which is Wakefield 241st Street on the 2 train, and Nereid Avenue on the 5 train. Then you keep walking north for a couple of miles, and you'll be in Westchester.

But if you travel straight north from Manhattan on the east side (the side that doesn't have the finger-shaped extension) the distance will be much longer than if you travel straight north from the tip of the finger, on the west side (the Inwood neighborhood).

So, from the east side of Manhattan, the distance between Manhattan and Westchester is about 6 miles. From the Inwood neighborhood on the west side, the distance is a little over 1 mile.

Actually, the distance between the west side of Manhattan and the Bronx can technically be called 0 miles. The neighborhood directly north of the Inwood neighborhood, (the stretch of land that separates the west tip of Manhattan from Westchester) is geographically part of the Bronx, but it is considered to be part of Manhattan, because it actually once was! It's called the Marble Hill neighborhood, and the history of how the whole neighborhood was physically moved from Manhattan to the Bronx is very interesting. See the Related Question below.

Since Marble Hill is still officially a part of Manhattan, it can be said that Westchester and Manhattan share a border with each other, on the west side.

See the Related Link below for a New York City subway map, which shows you all the five boroughs, as well as the southern tip of Westchester. The rivers, including the Harlem River, are also labeled.

Is Manhattan the same thing as New York New York?

Yes, they are the same thing. Properly addressed mail to Manhattan residents or businesses is addressed to, "New York, NY, 10010" or "New York, NY, 10025."

Originally, New York City consisted mostly of just Manhattan, which is why, I believe, mail addressed to Manhattan is addressed to, "New York, NY." In 1898, the five boroughs (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island) united to form modern-day New York City.

Mail addressed to people in Brooklyn is addressed to, "Brooklyn, NY"; mail addressed to people in The Bronx is addressed to, "Bronx, NY," and mail addressed to people on Staten Island is addressed to, "Staten Island, NY."

I believe that mail addressed to people in Queens is typically addressed to, "Queens, NY." But, before it became a borough of New York City, Queens consisted of a bunch of small towns. These towns are technically neighborhoods now, but they still sometimes seem to be used for postal purposes. For example, sometimes you see mail to people in the neighborhood of Forest Hills, Queens addressed to, "Forest Hills, NY" rather than, "Queens, NY."

Is the East River off Manhattan in New York a true river or is it an estuary of the Atlantic Ocean?

The East River is a tidal strait. It's a strait in that it is a "water passage" between Manhattan and Long Island. Because of tides, it appears to flow like a river. It's not an actual river because it connects on both ends to the ocean. Rivers flow from inland fresh water sources (such as mountain runoff or springs). The Hudson River, on Manhattan's West side, is a true river. It flows downstream from the North. Accordingly, the East River is salt water, the Hudson is fresh water. The East River is not an estuary, though--an estuary is the point of mingling of a river and the ocean. The mouth of the Hudson, though, while perhaps technically forming an estuary, flows around various islands and is channeled to the point that the distinction isn't worth making, as long as you ignore Spuyten Duyvil. You could say the East River is associated with an estuary, but it isn't one itself. One other thing: while the Hudson River does carry fresh water from upstate, the salt water from the Atlantic mingles upstream as far as Poughkeepsie, depending on tides, so it's pretty salty when it hits Manhattan.

How do you transfer money from your account in Chase Manhattan Bank in New York to your Calcutta Bank?

Wire Transfer of course! Not so fast. Check first to see if Calcutta Bank has a New York branch division as many international banks do. You can then save some money by visiting the branch directly because international wire transfer fees are expensive.
