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.
Encompassing 798 acres, Brooklyn's largest park has something to offer for every outdoorsman (-woman and -child): bike paths, baseball fields, bocce ball, nature trails, playgrounds, a 210-acre golf course and even a place to launch boats and kayaks in Jamaica Bay. Formerly hunting and fishing grounds for natives living in the nearby village of Keshawchqueren, this area, with its myriad species of plants and trees (not to mention salt marshes), is registered as a Forever Wild Reserve. There's nothing quite like it in the five boroughs.
