If you have URL and just want to get Data use CURL as below.

$url = "https://maps.google.com/maps/api/geocode/json?address=Manhattan&key=AIzaSyBr3mn7y42_iHMTcE_5zEJk_uSGCFXIFGk";
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,$url); 
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1); 
$response = curl_exec($ch); 
echo "<pre>";
$jsonToArray = json_decode($response,1);
