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.
This free monthly art extravaganza—now in its fourth year—offers North Shore residents a chance to soak up their borough’s emerging arts scene and view new work by cutting-edge artists. The galleries and venues participating in Second Saturday throw open their doors to all visitors, who can catch everything from original photography to live music to performance art.
