New York City is home to over 8 million people, all crammed into five boroughs: Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island, with Manhattan being the most popular to visit. For a first timer, there will be plenty to keep you busy in Manhattan, but don’t overlook Brooklyn and Queens if time allows.
