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.
A downtown institution—once infamous for its now-discontinued “margaritas to go”—El Sombrero (known as “The Hat” to regulars) has been serving the same affordable, no-frills Mexican cuisine to hungry Lower East Siders for a quarter of a century. The massive quesadillas and burritos, overflowing plates of beans and rice, and late business hours (they stay open until roughly 3am) make it a favorite spot for locals to end a long night out.
