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.
The parade up Fifth Avenue celebrates Puerto Rican community and culture, which connects the millions of Puerto Ricans living in the New York City metropolitan area and across the United States with their compatriots in the Caribbean. "Lively" doesn't even begin to describe this event, which attracts tens of thousands of marchers and millions of spectators every year and includes energetic musical performances, floats and a host of Puerto Rican celebrities.
