New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractionsâ€”and enough personalityâ€”to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
This Bronx landmark was built in 1842, and Mayor LaGuardia used it as his summer office more than nine decades later. Today, it’s a place to experience 19th-century country life in modern New York City. The architecture is breathtaking, with a freestanding spiral staircase at the entrance, floor-to-ceiling windows on the second floor and magnificent, flora-filled grounds outside. Tours and special events immerse guests of all ages in the history of the site and the borough.
