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 New York Philharmonic performs at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall (formerly Avery Fisher Hall), but it far predates this modernist building.

Throughout this illustrious history, the group has supported new music—most recently, the work of composers John Harbison, Poul Ruders and Stephen Hartke.
