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.
Twenty bucks goes far at this Greenpoint Polish eatery: we're talking dinner for two and leftovers for four. Whopping portions of meat and potatoes are doled out in a dining room that has the charm of Grandma's place (mismatched plates, plastic flowers, taxidermy). The Polish Platter comes with three tasty pierogi, an inch-thick stuffed cabbage, kielbasa, mashed potatoes and bigos, a traditional stew of meat and cabbage—all for a measly $7. The place is BYOB; the natural choice is vodka.
