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.
Established in 1864, Pete's is a contender for the City's oldest continuously operating bar. Even Prohibition couldn't prevent the place from closing its doors—it transformed into a speakeasy with a flower shop as its front. Lore has it that O. Henry wrote his 1906 short story "The Gift of the Magi" at one of the front tables. Today, patrons enjoy its burgers and old-school Italian food along with the house brew, Pete's 1864 Original House Ale.
