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.
Free concerts and fireworks are just two of the many reasons why South Beach is one of Staten Island's most popular locales. There's more to do than sunbathing and swimming—though both are favorites of many South Beach visitors. A fountain with six bronze dolphins features colorful lights that illuminate at night. There's a park especially for seniors that features checkerboard tables, bocce courts and lots of benches. And the Ocean Breeze fishing pier is huge—one of the largest in the City—and ideal for fishing or just enjoying the atmosphere.
