Manhattan is split into "districts", some of which have become synonymous with geographic & neighborhood vernacular such as the Flatiron District, The Meatpacking District and The Garment District. There are also well known "squares" such as Times Square, Union Square, Lincoln Square and Herald Square and "heights" such as Washington Heights and Morningside Heights. More than any other US city, many of Manhattan's early neighborhoods were rooted in their ethnic history such as Little Italy and Chinatown to name a few obvious ones.
