A Taste of Manhattan, New York

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT MANHATTAN?

  1. Manhattan is the oldest and the most densely-populated of the five boroughs of New York City. Located primarily on Manhattan Island at the mouth of the Hudson River, the boundaries of the borough are identical to those of New York County. The population was estimated to be 1,585,873.

  2. Manhattan has many famous landmarks, tourist attractions, museums, and universities. It is also home to the headquarters of the United Nations. It is the center of New York City and the New York metropolitan region, hosting the seat of city government and a large portion of the area's employment, business, and entertainment activities. As a result, residents of New York City's other boroughs such as Brooklyn and Queens often refer to a trip to Manhattan as "going to the city", despite the comparable populations between those boroughs.

  3. National protected areas -   African Burial Ground National Monument

  4. Economy -   Manhattan is home to some of the nation's most valuable real estate, and has a reputation as one of the most expensive areas in the United States. Offices along Sixth Avenue Manhattan is the economic engine of New York City, with its 2.3 million workers drawn from the entire New York metropolitan area accounting for almost two-thirds of all jobs in New York City. Manhattan's daytime population swells to 2.87 million, with commuters adding a net 1.34 million people to the population. This commuter influx of 1.46 million workers coming into Manhattan was the largest of any other county or city in the country, and was more than triple the 480,000 commuters who headed into second-ranked Washington, D.C.

  5. Climate -   Rain in Midtown ManhattanAlthough located at around 41N, Manhattan has a humid subtropical climate. The city's coastal position keeps temperatures relatively warmer than those of inland regions during winter, helping to moderate the amount of snow, which averages 25 to 35 inches each year. New York City has a frost-free period lasting an average of 220 days between seasonal freezes. Spring and fall in New York City are mild, while summer is very warm and humid, with temperatures of 90F or higher recorded from 18 to 25 days on average during the season. The city's long-term climate patterns are affected by the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation, a 70-year-long warming and cooling cycle in the Atlantic that influences the frequency and severity of hurricanes and coastal storms in the region. Summer evening temperatures are elevated by the urban heat island effect, which causes heat absorbed during the day to be radiated back at night, raising temperatures by as much as 7 F when winds are slow.

 State of HIV in Black America


(January 20, 2016, New York, NY) Looking back on the year, National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS (NBLCA) president and CEO C. Virginia Fields recently shared her choices for the top five stories involving black people and HIV in a column on Huffington Post Black Voices.

She cited: lower HIV death rates among black people; State of HIV in Black America and State of HIV in Black LGBTQ People forums launched; National AIDS Strategy updated to 2020; HIV prevention treatment shown to be very effective; loss of HIV/AIDS prevention pioneer Dr. Beny J. Primm. Read why she chose these stories, and more details about them in the column, Top 5 Stories Involving Black People and HIV in 2015, on Huffington Post Black Voices.

To find out what the top stories of 2016 are likely to be, join us on February 4, 2016, when NBLCA will reconvene the State of HIV in Black America Conference at the Schomburg Center For Research in Black Culture in Manhattan (again livestreamed to events in Tampa Bay, FL; Detroit, MI; Albany, Buffalo, Nassau (Long Island), Syracuse and Rochester, NY; with other cities being added) to address the current science of HIV/AIDS and identify the steps needed to end the epidemic in line with 2020 action plans.
