Each borough has a distinct identity and its own borough president and limited governing powers. Brooklyn is situated on Long Island and is the most populous of the five boroughs. Many of the neighborhoods in Brooklyn have high ethnic concentration and characteristic cultural identity.

Known as the most ethnically diverse county in the United States, Queens has played a major role in African-American culture. Queens has so much to offer, from international cuisine to spectacular parks to world-class sporting events. Staten Island might be the least populated of the five boroughs however it is the most suburban in character. Staten Island is separated from New Jersey and the rest of New York but is connected to them by several bridges and by the Staten Island Ferry. When visiting Staten Island, watch a baseball game at the Richmond County Bank Ballpark or visit the Historic Richmond Town to experience a slice of colonial life.
