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.
Billed as the world’s largest Russian bookseller outside of Russia itself, St. Petersburg Bookstore is a mecca for readers and students of the country’s language and culture. More than just printed materials, however, are on offer in this Brighton Beach store—the wide array of Russian imports includes toys and games, souvenirs, CDs, DVDs and unique handicrafts. Multiple locations around Brooklyn (and a comprehensive online shop) allow customers to buy nesting dolls, decorative eggs, kids’ comics and paperback novels for delight around the borough and beyond.
