New York City comprises the central island of Manhattan along with four outer boroughs - Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island. Manhattan, to many, is New York - whatever your interests, it's here that you'll spend the most time and are likely to stay. New York is very much a city of neighborhoods and is best explored on foot.
The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island comprise the first section of New York that most nineteenth-century immigrants would have seen. The Financial District takes in the skyscrapers and historic buildings of Manhattan's southern reaches. Just northeast is the area around City Hall, New York's well-appointed municipal center, which adjoins TriBeCa , known for its restaurants, galleries, and nightlife. Nearby is Little Italy, and the Lower East Side, the city's traditional gateway neighborhood for new immigrants, is scattered with trendy bars and clubs.
