New York City is composed of 5 boroughs, four of them (Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island) being islands and one (Bronx) part of mainland. Manhattan is surrounded by several small islands, one of them being Governor’s Island. After being used by the army for many years, and later deserted, it is now a beautiful park, as you can see from the images below.
A stroll at Manhattan Beach in Brooklyn gave me the opportunity to take the images below. As you can see , this is Jewish neighborhood. New York is a melting pot, with different neighborhoods all over. Visiting New York seems like visiting the entire world in a day .
