 Getting Your Bearings in NY City:

New York is composed of five boroughs, four of which are

situated on islands. Only The Bronx is part of mainland

North America.

In Manhattan, streets are laid out, roughly, east-west-east,

and avenues run north-south-north:

Streets are divided at 5th Avenue into "east" and "west".

South of Washington Square Park, in Greenwich Village,

Broadway divides "east" and "west" streets.

The designation of "east" and "west" streets ceases to exist south of Houston Street.

East-west, street house/building numbering begins at the particular dividing avenue.

 Avenue house/building numbers increase from south to

north.

"Uptown" means traveling in a northerly direction in

Manhattan from your starting point..

"Downtown" means traveling in a southerly direction in

Manhattan from your starting point..

streets for a Manhattan address is

easily calculated using simple algorithms.

Calculating Walking Distances in

Manhattan:

When walking along an avenue (north-south-

north): 20 blocks, (e.g. from 34th to 14th street)

equals 1mile/1.6 km

When walking along a street (east-west-east), on

average: 3 blocks, (e.g. 5th to 8th Avenue) along 34 St.

1 mile/1.6 km

Manhattan Henge

There is a phenomenon which has been termed

"Manhattan Henge" by Neil deGrasse Tyson,

an astrophysicist at the American Museum of

Natural History.

 Four times a year, the sun can be seen

rising or setting squarely at the ends of Manhattan

streets.

Much in the way our ancient ancestors were able

to make solar observations, so, too, New Yorkers

can know with precision the arrival of

December 5 and January 8 as well as May 28

and July 12/13, respectively.
