New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractionsâ€”and enough personalityâ€”to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
This park is Brooklyn's first, established in 1847 after serving as the home to several forts during the Revolutionary War. Now the forts are gone, replaced with basketball courts, playgrounds, tennis courts and plenty of space (more than 30 acres) to enjoy some time outside. On Saturdays, you can wander through the greenmarket just outside the park, then find a bench and enjoy your foodie finds.
