This guide focuses on the island of Manhattan, the showiest of the city’s five boroughs, though the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island all have attractions, too. Want to know where to eat on a budget, how to navigate one of the world’s largest subway systems and the best ways to score a ticket for a hot Broadway show? We’ve got you covered.
