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.
Rich in history and wildlife, Wolfe's Pond Park in Staten Island is like a getaway within the City. While not your usual shoreline experience—there's no shortage of seaweed and marine life, and water shoes are recommended for those who wish to brave the waves—the beach on Raritan Bay is still a great, and usually quiet, place to kick back and relax. Meanwhile, the rest of Wolfe's Pond Park is a prime location for everything from picnics and barbecues (with bay views) to fishing, hiking, biking, bird-watching and other adventures.
