I am a third generation Manhattanite. Yes my Grandfather was born here. He actually ran a company that built most of Manhattan, and has photos of the city sixty years ago all over his house. He has taught me about all of the historic spots in the city, and living in the village for the last six years I have done alot of food exploration of my own. I try to avoid crowds so I know about many of the hidden gems that the city has to offer.
