Lower Manhattan is one of the more interesting city subsections I’ve ever seen. In an area that would fit inside almost every other American city, you have Greenwich Village, Chinatown, Alphabet City, SoHo, Little Italy, The Bowery, Battery Park, Two Bridges, Tribeca, South Seaport… I think you get the point.
