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.
Polish food isn't as easy to find in the East Village as it used to be, so thank your lucky stars that Polonia has managed to survive the neighborhood's ebbs and flows since 1989. It excels at homey breakfasts, hearty soups, pierogi, kielbasas, potato pancakes and blintzes, but the restaurant's owners have tried to modernize by adding truffle fries and ostrich steak to the menu. You can also come here for a basic burger and beer. It's a neighborhood place, casual and comfortable, catering to students and seniors and everyone in between who's looking to save a dime.
