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.
Perched at the very edge of New York City, City Island brings small-town fishing-village charm to the city that never sleeps. The 252-acre island is sparsely populated (with only 4,362 full-time residents) but serves as a paradise for City dwellers looking for a quick maritime escape. The island is home to four yacht clubs and more than 30 restaurants, most specializing in lobster and other seafood, including famous spots Johnny’s Reef Restaurant, Sammy’s Fish Box and Crab Shanty.
