Try to count up all the things to do around New York City and you'd probably lose track pretty quickly. But writing about the City every day had us wondering if there was a way to break it all down. Could we show just how many parks, restaurants, modes of transportation and more fit into the five boroughs? In the end, we confirmed our suspicion that there is, indeed, a lot to check out.
