The Boroughs of NYC

Traveling by comfortable motorcoach and accompanied by your professional, licensed NYC bilingual tour guide, your day starts in the borough of Manhattan, known as “the city,” with a ride through Harlem in Upper Manhattan. Learn about the development of this diverse neighborhood and see historic sites, such as the world-renowned Apollo Theater, debut venue for many performers like Ella Fitzgerland, The Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye, and many others.

Next, you travel north to the borough of the Bronx, where you can see the home of one of the most famous baseball teams in the world: The New York Yankees! You also learn about the birth of hip hop, and while walking along the streets, you can view original street art.

The tour continues across the East River in the borough of Queens, one of the most ethnically diverse counties in the US, whose residents speak over 100 languages. You pass through the exclusive Malba neighborhood, with its many beautiful homes, and visit Flushing Meadows Park, home of the US Open (one of the oldest tennis championships in the world), the New York Mets baseball team, and the Unisphere (leftover from the 1964 World’s Fair).

Later, you visit the borough of Brooklyn, viewing the neighborhoods of Williamsburg and Crown Heights, home to one of the largest Hasidic Jewish communities outside of Israel, alongside a younger, gentrifying non-Jewish population. Afterward, you head down to world-famous Coney Island, a destination for New Yorkers seeking fun and relaxation for generations. Weather permitting, you have an opportunity to explore the boardwalk and to have lunch at the original, legendary Nathan’s restaurant.

Finally, you head back over the East River, passing by the historic Brooklyn Bridge on your return into Manhattan. The day’s itinerary is subject to traffic conditions and may be modified due to time constraints.

He is frequently cited as one of the best MCs of all time. Emerging from the underground hip hop scene in the Bronx borough of New York City in the early 1990s, he came to prominence during the latter half of the decade for his work with Fat Joe and the Terror Squad

The name of the subsection of Malba in northern Whitestone is derived from the first letters of the surnames of its five founders of the Malba Land Company: Maycock, Alling, Lewis, Bishop, and Avis. Malba is considered part of Whitestone, one of the more affluent communities in Queens.
