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.
It's been nearly a century since the Bronx Opera House was a destination for theatergoers. For as little as a quarter, they could enjoy performances by the likes of George Burns, John Barrymore and Harry Houdini. Today, the 60-room Opera House Hotel is notable for being the borough's first boutique hotel—and significantly cheaper than similar accommodations in Manhattan. There are local sights to be taken in as well: Yankee Stadium and the Bronx's restaurant-rich Little Italy neighborhood are nearby.
