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 8.8-acre downtown park is the perfect spot for afternoon lunch meetings as well as people-watching—newlyweds coming from the new Manhattan Marriage Bureau are often seen strolling the grounds. The park is home to more than a dozen monuments, and its bike path leads to the Brooklyn Bridge. In 1999, a $34.6 million project not only added a central walkway and gardens but also helped to bring a restored Jacob Wrey Mould fountain back to the park from the Bronx's Crotona Park.
