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.
In just a little over an hour, you can be transported from the glitz and glamour of Manhattan to the old-school amusement of Brooklyn’s storied Coney Island. The destination offers thrills, sun, surf and a unique brand of entertainment that will feel worlds away from the rest of the City. Home to the Cyclone (the legendary wooden roller coaster) and Luna Park amusement park, the New York Aquarium, the original Nathan’s Famous, the Brooklyn Cyclones minor league baseball team, a world-renowned boardwalk and, of course, beautiful Atlantic beaches, Coney Island is an absolute must on any New York City itinerary.
