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.
On weekend nights, the BAMcafé, above the Brooklyn Academy of Music lobby, features everything from folk and spoken word to hip-hop and world music. BAMs NextNext series emphasizes performers under the age of 30, such as Carl Hancock Rux, Chocolate Genius and Antibalas, while the SistaFactory regularly puts on shows with female artists.
