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.
The mission of the organization is to preserve and promote the heritage of this diverse, proud borough of 1.2 million residents, and it runs a research library, historical archive and two museums, one dedicated to the Bronx’s dramatic history and the other to the personal legacy of local poet and author Edgar Allen Poe. The Society also offers guided neighborhood tours and presents lectures and art exhibits.
