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.
Once a wrecked and abandoned industrial waterfront, Gantry Plaza State Park is now a manicured 12-acre park and promenade running alongside the East River, with breathtaking views of the east side of Manhattan, which can be comfortably enjoyed from riverside chairs and benches. The park includes gardens and playground facilities as well as basketball and handball courts.
