New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
It's likely you already know the fanciful, fantastical Christmas Eve story and Tchaikovsky's unforgettable melodies—but it's certain that no New York City holiday season is complete without seeing Balanchine's classic confection come to life. The glittering classic, performed annually by the New York City Ballet since 1954, has become one of the City's signature family-friendly traditions. Expect to warm your spirit with visions of the Sugarplum Fairy dancing in your head. For more information, visit nycballet.com.
