NYC's second borough continues to break out of Manhattan's shadow at a rapid pace. Boutique hotels are springing up everywhere, the music scene is thriving, and Gray Line are even running tours. The borough, which would be America's fourth-largest city if it were still independent, is home to numerous diverse communities, from Russian enclaves in Brighton Beach and Polish residents in Greenpoint, to the arty punks of Bushwick and the Bugaboo-pushing moms of Windsor Terrace. There are just as many attractions to explore and things to do, so see below and get going!
