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.
Dassara is a watering hole, ramen house and neighborhood booster, touting the kippered salmon from Shelsky's Smoked Fish in a bowl of ramen and a sometime-special of Mile End pastrami sandwiched in a ramen burger or even bobbing in a bowl of chicken broth with matzo balls.

During the day you'll see more strollers.
