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.
Liberty State Park—1,122 open acres on the Jersey City waterfront and just a stone’s throw from Ellis and Liberty Islands—is home to the Liberty Science Center, a state-of-the-art educational attraction for all ages, and the Interpretive Center, whose exhibits focus on the natural history and ecology of the Hudson River estuary. It’s also the site of the historic Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal. There are trails for hiking and biking as well as space for recreational activities and picnicking. Year-round ferry service connects the park to Ellis and Liberty Islands. Visit the website nj.gov for more information.
