    Re: seems to have made t all over Manhattan..

    It makes no sense to me.

    You appear to have found it on a Russian and/or Thai site giving subtitles for films, so it may well have been inaccurately transcribed.

    For a start, I'm going to guess that "t" is meant to be the word "it".

    I will also guess that perhaps the two people involved did something in the morning which they wanted to keep secret but it has already been spread all over Manhattan (somehow). By referring to "our morning" they perhaps mean "what we did this morning".

    "So now that our morning has made it all over Manhattan, I guess there's no point trying to keep it secret any more." (The second half of the sentence I have invented just as an example.)

    As I said, this is all a guess as we have no real context and we don't know what the rest of the sentence was.
