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.
The King Manor Museum is an historic site dedicated to Rufus King, one of the authors of the Constitution, as well as one of New York State’s first senators. He was staunchly opposed to slavery at a time when such opposition was rare. Today, visitors can tour the house and learn about life on a farm in the 1800s, as well as discover more about King’s antislavery work.
