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.
These days, it's gospel, not gangsters, ruling the legendary Cotton Club. The 13-piece Cotton Club All Stars or a visiting jazz or blues artist will have you out on one of the two mahogany dance floors in no time, though the $32 cover (Thursday to Saturday) seems steep. A better bet is the window-rattlin', testifyin' Saturday and Sunday gospel brunch ($25), with seatings at noon and 2:30pm.
