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.
In the land of floppy triangles, the square-shaped pizza is king. L&B Spumoni Gardens is one of those great historic pizzerias peculiar to Brooklyn, but L&B serves a uniquely satisfying Sicilian slice (familiarly called a "square" here): thick slabs of crust, with a layer of mozzarella below a hefty serving of tomato sauce and olive oil with a sprinkling of Pecorino Romano cheese. In a word: perfection. There's technically an adjoining restaurant at L&B, too, where you can get a selection of heroes, pasta dishes and other entrées—but why would you do a crazy thing like that when you can sit outside at the shaded picnic tables, gobbling squares and pistachio spumoni?
