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.
Queens’ Fort Totten boasts a rich history. The US Army bought this former farmland in the 19th century, and it played a part in the Civil War, World War I and World War II. The site’s landmark, castle-like Officers’ Club is now home to the Society’s exhibits, which educate children and adults about Bayside while helping BHS preserve the neighborhood’s distinct heritage. It’s a must for history buffs and anyone who enjoys spectacular architecture.
