Many Spanish-speaking people, the Hispanics, immigrated from Mexico, Puerto Rico or Cuba, for example. People from all over the world live in New York. Many of them have settled in their own neighborhoods. Little Italy or Chinatown are examples of this. Today Chinatown is also a tourist attraction. ”Poor and rich As she drives through the Manhattan borough, Amanda continues:“ Manhattan is characterized by skyscrapers, shopping streets and expensive shops. Wall Street with many banks is also here. The upper floors of the skyscraper are mainly used for offices. The apartments in Manhattan are very expensive. Therefore, only a few people live here. Most of them live in other parts of the city or in the suburbs and commute to work in the downtown area every day. In the urban areas with high levels of poverty, crime and drug trafficking, people often make a living from casual jobs or from social welfare. The Harlem neighborhood was an example of this. Many houses there have been renovated in the last few decades. Social workers also helped the people living there. Crime has fallen, but poverty and homelessness are still big problems. ”The suburbs of New York are mentioned. They are settlements with single-family houses. Often these are prefabricated houses. That's why the houses look very similar. For shopping, people drive to the large shopping centers on the outskirts.
