If you’re one of the almost 60 million visitors to New York City per year, the first place that comes to mind when you think about where you want to go is Times Square, or Central Park, or one of those famous, typical tourist attractions. But how much do you really know about the background, outside, and not so famous parts of the city?
There are five boroughs in the city that are called Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island. Manhattan is mostly centered around business and tourism. It is the borough that most people migrate towards when visiting. It may seem like the most interesting or appealing place to visit in the city, and in a lot of ways, it is. On the other hand there are so many different layers and layers of the city and every time you peel one back, you’ll find dozens more. The diversity in NYC is incredible, everywhere you look there is someone new and different who maybe speaks a different language, has a different faith, or leads an completely different life than you’re used to being around. If you look around and notice how many cultures are just in this one city it’s amazing.
