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.
See both sides of Manhattan from 42nd Street to Battery Park without leaving your seat on a cruise with CitySightseeing NY Cruises. The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, Governors Island and the bridges over the East River are just a few of the sights along the route of their 90-minute daytime and twilight (6pm) cruises from Midtown. CitySightseeing also offers a 60-minute downtown cruise from Pier 5 near the Staten Island Ferry (an official cruise of the U.S. National Park Service) that features commentary from park rangers, historians and scientists, offering a layered perspective on harbor ecology, commerce, immigration and defense.
