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.
Built between 1846 and 1851, Brooklyn’s oldest public building, designed by Gamaliel King, was formerly Brooklyn’s City Hall. The stately, Greek Revival–style building is known and admired for its impossibly high columns, massive staircase, two-story rotunda lobby and stunning clock tower. Not surprisingly, the formidable structure is now registered as a New York City landmark.
