Sanibel vs. Manhattan

While Sanibel and Manhattan are both islands 12 mile long by 3 mile wide, that is where the similarities end.  This video created by the Sanibel Film School provides a fun look at some of these differences:

While 1.6 M residents call Manhattan home, Sanibel is blessed with less than 6,800 residents.  Manhattan's tallest building is the 1,776 foot, 104-story One World Trade Center completed in 2014.  The tallest structure on Sanibel is the Sanibel Island Light which stands 98-feet tall.

When Compared to Manhattan, Sanibel's real estate prices seem like a bargain.
