23. Manhattan is a small part of New York
Edited on Thu Sep-24-09 08:24 AM by HamdenRice
New York is really mostly Brooklyn and Queens, and you don't need a lot of money to live in the outer boroughs. Yet most of these boroughs, plus the Bronx, have the same efficiencies (density) as Manhattan.

I thought it was weird that the article veered off from discussing "New York City" to discussing "Manhattan."

That said, one of the really huge efficiences of Manhattan is that much of island from Mid Town to Wall Street is heated and cooled by steam which is a waste product from our local power plant -- ie co-generation -- which would simply be wasted in most other power generation situations. (That's why so many movies show steam rising from the streets of Manhattan -- that's a result of Con Ed's steam pipes which go into most buildings in the area.

We don't use co generation in the outer boroughs.
