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.
Hot-dog-as-superhero is the theme at this cheerful, clean fast-food shop. The comic strip–plastered space features a mighty hot dog character proclaiming, "One is not enough!!" (They're good, but one is enough for most appetites, actually.)

French fries, soft drinks and a veggie dog round out the menu.
