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.
Seeking a more intimate musical experience? Check out Rockwood Music Hall, a tiny, charming new Lower East Side storefront venue that showcases local musicians, with a heavy emphasis on singer/songwriter acts. There’s no cover charge, so visitors can imbibe in their nicely curated beer and wine list. The venue tends to fill up quickly, so do get there in advance of the show.
