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.
The oldest park in New York City is home to the famous Charging Bull sculpture (also known as the “Wall Street bull”), a symbol of financial optimism. It also serves as the starting point for the City's ticker-tape parades. The wedge-shaped plot of land originally was home to a cattle market, but it became a park in 1733. An attractive fountain and benches help to make this a favorite lunchtime spot for Financial District employees.
