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.
The 10 cultural institutions that make their home along Museum Mile offer some of the City's finest collections of art, history, design and culture from around the globe. Anchoring the downtown end of the Mile is the world-renowned Metropolitan Museum of Art, whose permanent collection comprises more than 2 million works. On the uptown end is El Museo del Barrio, which is devoted to Latino—and particularly Puerto Rican—art and culture. Other stops include The Jewish Museum, the Museum of the City of New York, the National Academy Museum, Neue Galerie and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum; Goethe-Institut New York; and the Museum for African Art are closed until further notice.
