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.
Once home to homeless shelters and punk rock clubs, the Bowery is now graced with new restaurants, shops, condos and the stylish Bowery Hotel. The gorgeous rooms feature a wall of windows, hardwood floors, luxurious Persian rugs, flat-screen TVs and a host of other high-end treats. Perhaps the best part is the stunning, gentleman’s club-like lobby, and the discreet attached bar and outdoor terrace.
