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.
Brooklyn's storied Coney Island is home to the legendary Cyclone roller coaster and Luna Park amusement park, the New York Aquarium, the original Nathan's Famous, the Brooklyn Cyclones minor league baseball team, a world-renowned boardwalk and, of course, beautiful seaside beaches, Coney Island is a must on any New York City itinerary. The Alliance for Coney Island is a civic organization dedicated to the continued transformation of Coney Island into a year-round recreational oceanfront destination, working with businesses and local community groups on initiatives for the betterment of the neighborhood.
