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.
No need to explain the big draw at the View, which is situated atop the Marriott Marquis in Midtown, in the heart of Times Square. Don’t worry about getting a good seat—it’s the only rotating restaurant in New York, turning a full revolution every hour so the entire dining room gets the full panorama. The dinner prix-fixe and brunch buffet menus at the restaurant offer up American/Continental fare. In the lounge, one of the best places to view the bright lights of the big City, visitors can take in a complete view of the New York skyline in an hour while sipping cocktails. Consider this your alternative to a walking tour.
