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.
With the popularity of cupcake shops growing by the minute, it’s no surprise that the line at Cupcake Café in the West Village can be quite long. But those who know their mini-cakes have been frequenting this Ninth Avenue café, in the shadow of the Port Authority, for more than 20 years. Special orders are welcomed, and for any occasion the talented cake decorators on staff will gladly add creative buttercream designs to their baby- or full-size cakes. Other sweet and savory snacks are on offer to go with your butterbomb.
