Empty links[edit]

Please don't add empty links. Make a stub then add it to the template. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talkcontribs).

I too agree and responded as such to the next message from the unregisted user who left the following on my user talk page. Doc 23:56, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Liberty Island[edit]

Liberty Island is NOT a neighborhood in Manhattan! Editing now. Er (talk) 08:23, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Manhattan Lower West Side[edit]

Hello, I am sorry to bother you, but I thought I should explain my recent editing of the Manhattan template. I have been linking articles about New York City neighborhoods to both their boroughs and their corresponding templates. The overwhelming vast majority of these have been pages that already existed. Although some were simply stubs, many of those have been dramatically expanded simply because someone noticed that they had been added to the template and decided to put more text in about them in the customary Wiki manner. I have chosen to add a few undefined neighborhoods to the templates because I believed that their absence were gross omissions, including the Lower West Side. Although I work as a engineer, I admit to not being handy with Wiki and assume you are more knowledgable than me about both its writing system and New York City. Therefore, as I have learned from your Wiki user page that you have made significant contributions to articles here, I hope you might be inspired to create a spanking new Lower West Side page by the following links.

These sources and others should help prove that the Lower West Side of Manhattan does in fact exist either as a neighborhood in its own right or as a collection of them (like the South Bronx or the Rockaways). As someone who lived in New York City for several years, I believe the Lower West Side is part of the social fabric and not just the latest neighborhood rebranding. Personally, I have heard of people using the term mockingly but have encountered it more lately in causal conversation without derision. So you know, I attended St. John's University (before I dropped out), lived in Brooklyn while trying to be a musician (before I stopped dropping out), and now commute to Manhattan from Connecticut (after I stopped dropping out and got an education). I have always been enchanted by the Five Boroughs and would live there if my family could could afford it. Please feel free to contact me on here regarding this matter or others that you desire. I hope this will be of some help to you. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 167.206.190.114 (talkcontribs) 18:37, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

The above message was left on my personal user talk page and I don't really have time to investigate further at the moment, so I thought that I'd throw it open here as I responded to this person on my talk page. Doc 23:58, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

huge space usage[edit]

This template is extremely inefficient in using its space, with every hood in a new line. I think this appeared in this edit here: [1] Why was this done? Peter S. 18:53, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Does each neighborhood appear on their own line when transcluded into a page? When I currently view the template I see about 10 lines with about 8 neighborhoods per line... if you are just talking about the wiki markup, that is just to make editing the template easier. If you are talking about how the template actually looks, would you mind letting us know which browser and operating system you are using to view the page? It could be a browser bug and I'll do my best to correct for it. PaulC/T+ 19:17, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Gramercy Park[edit]

Gramercy Park strikes me as not belonging in the template - it's not anything close to a neighborhood, it's a private park. Certainly the article belongs on the site, but I just feel like it should be taken out of the template. matt91486 01:47, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

East Harlem[edit]

East Harlem should be its own article. Right now it redirects to Spanish Harlem. The two are different neighborhoods. --Zimbabweed (talk) 07:46, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Groups?[edit]

I'm thinking of reorganizing this template into groups for uptown, midtown, downtown, etc., with smaller areas grouped by the bigger areas. Make senese? --Muboshgu (talk) 18:33, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Italian Harlem[edit]

This is listed as a distinct neighborhood. However, as the article explains, it has been supplanted by Spanish Harlem. Therefore I am taking the liberty of removing this from the template. ScottyBerg (talk) 20:45, 7 March 2010 (UTC)
