You may be asking how New York City fits into our archipeglio theme. 42 islands comprise this city’s diverse archipelago. Within the city’s boundaries there are dozens of islands―some famous, like Ellis, some infamous, like Rikers, and others forgotten, like North Brother. Each and every one of them has a unique history - most were settled at one time or another, most are abandoned now - as well as a unique ecosystem. While the spotlight often falls on the museums, trends, and restaurants of Manhattan, the city’s other islands have vivid and intriguing stories to tell. They offer the day-tripper everything from nature trails to military garrisons.
NYC is made up of five different boroughs - Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens and Staten Island. Many islands which were once islands, have long since been connected to the boroughs by artificial landfills are also covered here (e.g. Coney Island-Brooklyn, Hunter Island-Bronx, Battery Park area-Manhattan, etc..)
