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.
Strand Book Store, just off Union Square, has some impressive numbers: 18 miles of 2 million new and used books, at 50% off cover prices. And this New York treasure—open since 1927—sells every kind of book imaginable, from novels to memoirs to art books to historical tomes. For the true book nerds, a rare-book collection in a connected building contains those favorite dusty first editions.
