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.
Part of the vibrant new Rockaway Beach scene that includes Tacoway Beach and Rippers, the Playland Motel—located just a few blocks from the ocean—offers guests 12 unique rooms, each designed by a different Brooklyn artist. The spot is also home to the Playland Tavern, a bar and restaurant that boasts a rotating menu of chef's specialty snacks, signature cocktails and live music and DJs curated by local indie labels. Additionally, Playland has partnered with Bolivian Llama Party, a local food establishment that has gained recognition at Williamsburg's Smorgasburg and the Rockaway Beach Boardwalk for its famous menu of slow-cooked meats, like triple pork sandwiches, brisket, chicken and tilapia sliders, and its empanada-like saltenas.
