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.
A former US Army base, Fort Totten is still used for NYPD and FDNY training. It's also a City park, and visitors flock to see its historic buildings, including a castle-like former officers' club, now the Bayside Historical Society, and an abandoned Civil War fortress. Other activities include swimming in the outdoor pool, bird-watching and canoeing in the Long Island Sound.
