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.
Abraham Lincoln's purported playbill for his fateful night at Ford's Theatre kicked off the considerable collection of Lincoln memorabilia at this circa-1885 steakhouse, which is anything but a museum. Keens keeps things fun, with activities such as bar trivia (example: In The Prisoner of Second Avenue, which young actor did Jack Lemmon "mug?"). Answer three correctly and you get a free cigar. No matter how successful your guesses, the bar is wonderful, manned by convivial barkeeps who know how to make a drink and can offer suggestions on the more than 200 scotches on hand. It's also the place for a pub menu of fresh oysters, turkey schnitzel and prime rib rash. For a more formal dining experience there are a number of prime dry-aged steak cuts, roasted buttermilk chicken and Dover sole. Without going into detail, everything's good.
