The townships that comprise a "ring" around York City are the most populated and include Springettsbury Township, York Township, Spring Garden Township, Manchester Township, and West Manchester Township. These communities all draw a heavy influence from York City, and many residents work in and around York. It is in these townships that you will find the greatest number of businesses and retail outlets. York International Corp., a Fortune 500 company, is headquartered in Spring Garden Township, and internationally-renown Harley-Davidson Motor Company maintains a sprawling complex in Springettsbury Township. The York Galleria Mall and West Manchester Mall are regional malls, and shopping centers and specialty stores are located throughout Greater York.

The Greater York area is also home to a number of post-secondary educational institutions, including York College of Pennsylvania, Penn State York, Bradley Academy for the Visual Arts, and York Technical Institute. It is also here that you will find diverse housing options, from low-to-moderate income housing to wooded middle class suburban neighborhoods to upscale neighborhoods with million-dollar views.
