New York City is made up of five boroughs, four of which are on three islands at the mouth of the Hudson River: Manhattan Island; Staten Island; and Long Island, which includes Brooklyn and Queens on its western end. Beyond New York City, New York is dominated by farms, rivers, mountains, forests and lakes.
