Manhattan is a city located in the northeastern part of the state of Kansas at the junction of the Kansas River and Big Blue River. The city extends between Riley and Pottawatomie counties. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 52,281.
Nicknamed "The Little Apple", it is best known as being the home of Kansas State University and has a college town atmosphere. Manhattan is also known as Titletown USA thanks largely in part to the 2012-2013 athletic season for the Kansas State University Wildcats.
Another area that makes Manhattan unique is Aggieville. Aggieville contains over 100 shops including restaurants and local stores in a 4 block area. Every year it is the location for the New Years Eve ball drop, as well as Fake Paddy's Day.
In 2007, CNN and Money magazine rated Manhattan as one of the ten best places in America to retire young. In 2011, Forbes rated Manhattan No. 1 for "Best Small Communities for a Business and Career."
