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.
Downtown Manhattan’s largest public open space, this 25-acre waterfront park is a hub of outdoor activity. It’s the site of open-air concerts, beautiful gardens and the Castle Clinton National Monument—and, starting in the fall of 2009, the stunning New Amsterdam Plein and Pavilion, a gift from the Dutch government.
