New York Deal: Outer Boroughs

Posted on 2020-07-16

Offering five fascinating boroughs to explore–Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens and Staten Island–New York City promises exciting and entertaining adventures to groups using Monsey Tours as their guide to these charming and historic outer boroughs. Developed over a century ago, NYC’s boroughs possess distinctly separate personalities reflecting ethnic and cultural differences in architecture, food preferences, lifestyle and history.

Bounded by the Hudson, East and Harlem Rivers, Manhattan is a bustling, vibrant island borough that is home to the famous Wall Street and the United Nations Headquarters, with its eye-catching row of colorful world flags waving proudly outside. The “Crossroads of the World”–Times Square–is in Manhattan as well, emblazoned with neon lit signs advertising theaters, restaurants, shops and famous television studios.

Traveling through Staten Island brings visitors to Historic Richmond Town, a charming complex offering a village of restored homes from America’s colonial period and a museum containing one-of-a-kind artifacts over 300 years old. In addition, the world renown Staten Island Zoo recently completed refurbishing their reptile exhibit and leopard enclosure.

While touring Brooklyn, don’t miss visiting Coney Island and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Skip over to Queens where visitors experience NYC’s second largest Chinatown and browse shops selling exotic herbs and boba tea line streets flavored with the delicious smell of Asian food.
Famous for being home to Yankee Stadium, the Bronx never fails to delight visitors with its arresting cultural diversity and the beauty of its Bronx Zoo and Botanical Gardens.
