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 reggae soundtrack is heavy on Bob Marley at Miss Lily's 7A Cafe, a crazy-quilt diner sporting images of Jamaica, record-themed wallpaper and windows open to the breeze. The menu is similar to the original Miss Lily's, on Houston Street, where Melvin's Juice Box organic elixirs gained a cult following. Bottles of his tasty, healing juices are iced on the bar, and there's also a healthy offering of Red Stripe beer and dark and stormys. Brunch and lunch are served every day, and among the most luscious items is jerk pork banh mi that comes with a paper cone of jerk-spiced fries. Jerk chicken wings, cod fish fritters with curry dipping sauce and mac and cheese pie are also particularly pleasing.
