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.
The sea turtle fountain, which kids can run through (for hours on end), makes the trip to Midland Beach worth it—at least for the little ones. The playground and handball and shuffleboard courts don't hurt, either. Midland Beach shares the Franklin D. Roosevelt Boardwalk with adjacent South Beach, usually the more crowded of the two. Midland Beach is also home to a veterans memorial honoring Staten Island residents who served and died in World War I, World War II and the Korean and Vietnam Wars.
