Manhattan is the oldest of the five boroughs of New York City in the state of New York. Its borders are concurrent with those of New York County, and consist of Manhattan Island, several nearby islands including Roosevelt, Ward’s and Governors Islands, and the neighborhood of Marble Hill. New York County is one of the most densely populated regions in the world, with more than 1.6 million residents occupying an area of just under 23 square miles. For many people, Manhattan is nearly synonymous with New York City, and a potent symbol of the U.S.A. as a whole. Manhattan is a hub of numerous industries – film & television, fashion, publishing, finance. Manhattan is home to the United Nations headquarters, and the New York Stock Exchange. Another famous landmark, Central Park, occupies 843 acres of Manhattan, providing green space and recreation for millions of visitors each year.


By the 19th century, Manhattan had become a major seaport, and waves of European immigrants entered Manhattan through Ellis and Governor’s Islands, fueling an industrial and construction boom that lasted well into the 20th century, producing many of the city’s iconic skyscrapers. Western Electric Company, Inc., incorporated in 1915, manufactured telephones and other electrical products for AT&T and Bell System companies. Although industry declined and crime increased in the 1960s and 1970s, the 1980s saw the reemergence of the city as a financial center. In recent years, efforts to encourage tourism have made Manhattan a popular vacation destination.

Manhattan has a lengthy and varied history of industry and construction, putting it in a high risk category for asbestos exposure. Workers exposed to asbestos may be at risk to develop mesothelioma, a cancer of the lungs. If you were exposed to asbestos in Manhattan and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you should also consider contacting a mesothelioma law firm.
