The neighborhoods of New York

It is clear that to visit New York you need a lot of time, especially if you want to see the whole city and discover all its corners. One of the best ways is to organize yourself by neighborhoods, also called districts, to be able to dedicate at least one day to each of them to see what is most important.

The five boroughs of New York are connected by bridges, tunnels, highways, and by sea. The Staten Island Ferry connects this island with southern Manhattan and is one of the great attractions in the city since during it you will enjoy the best views of the Statue of Liberty , Ellis Island and the lower Manhattan. Take note of the best of each New York neighborhood:

Bronx : It is in the northern part of the city and it is the only one that is located on the mainland. One of its great attractions is Yankee Stadium, which is the place where the famous NY Yankees play baseball and is considered the cathedral of this sport, one of the most followed in the entire country. There are also several very important universities and shipyards here. It is the district of the city in which there are more Italians.

Manhattan : Undoubtedly the most famous district in the city and visited by millions of people every year thanks to the countless attractions it has, such as Central Park, Times Square or the Empire State Building. It covers almost 60 rough kilometers and is divided into several sectors, such as the Upper East Side, the Upper West Side, the Midtow or the Lower Manhattan.

Brooklyn : Here you will find the greatest variety of ethnic groups in the city, and it is a district in which a multitude of cultures and nationalities coexist. Among its attractions is taking a walk along the Promenade, which is a mall that borders the East River and offers you wonderful views of the Manhattan skyline.

Queens : It is a very important district since it houses two of the most important airports in the city, JFK and La Guardia (the latter is for domestic flights).

Staten Island : It is west of Brooklyn and separated by several channels, which gives a fantastic landscape. It is ideal for taking a ferry ride and enjoying the views of the city from the water at a slow pace.
