Here’s a Short Guide to New York’s Outer Boroughs
Discover all there is to NYC when you visit its outer boroughs.
Take a ferry to the island and discover NYC’s most remote borough. Here you’ll find lots of natural spaces – parks, beaches, and forests, like the Staten Island Green Belt. Don’t forget to visit one of the many museums or historical landmarks, like Historic Richmond Town or the National Lighthouse Museum.
This iconic borough is almost like a city within a city. While you’re here, experience the unique sights, like the Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Heights promenade (and its signature brownstones), Prospect Park, or cool and trendy Williamsburg. Don’t forget classic Coney Island on the coast, a mainstay since the late 19th century.
NYC’s most diverse borough is also its largest. The array of cultures is best on display through the food and art, whether it’s Greek, Chinese, Mexican, Peruvian, Cuban, and more. Here you’ll also find Citi Field, home of the NY Mets, and lots of world-class museums, including the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria.
Possibly best known as the home of Yankee Stadium, this borough offers a plethora of things. There’s Little Italy on Arthur Avenue, with a covetable street market that includes meats, fish stalls, fresh produce, and quaint cafes. Don’t forget the New York Botanical Gardens and the Grand Concourse, which is rich with art deco appeal.
