Manhattan, KS

Located in the northeastern part of the state of Kansas, Manhattan straddles both Pottawatomie and Riley counties. This town of approximately 52,000 lies in the junction of the Big Blue and Kansas rivers and is the county seat of Riley County. Its nickname, "the Little Apple," comes from its namesake in New York City, "the Big Apple." Residents also sometimes refer to the town as "Manhappiness" or "Manhappening."

NEIGHBORHOODS AND DISTRICTS

Located in the Flint Hills of Kansas, Manhattan is surrounded by rolling hills covered in swaying tall grasses. Manhattan's downtown area was built on a floodplain between those lovely hills and, as a result, it has experienced flooding problems over the years.

Kansas State University is located in the heart of Manhattan. The students who swarm to the city each year have a tremendous economic and social impact on the community.

Manhattan has eight neighborhoods and is the ninth-largest community in Kansas. Some of the more expensive neighborhoods in Manhattan are Bluemont Hill, Tuttle Creek, Sunset Park, and Warner Park Road.

ECONOMY AND INDUSTRIES

Manhattan is a center for trade, education, government, health care and entertainment. About 86 percent of Manhattan's residents are employed in white-collar jobs.
