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.
Founded in Boston by "a couple of local joes," this haven for athletic paraphernalia introduces the world of exercise to the urbanite, with gear aplenty for both the indoor champ and the marathon dreamer. Those brave enough to weather the cold can accessorize their jog with Polar heart-rate monitors ($60--$800) to match with Mizuno's new Wave Creation 9 running shoe ($130). The homebody can bulk up and tone with York dumbbells ($4 and up) while watching one of the many DVDs including Kettlebell training, a workout with cannon balls by Sarah Lurie ($15).
