GSN explores the outer borough of Queens for street meat, outdoor art and the gay rights struggle that came before Stonewall

New York is arguably one of the most popular cities in the world. Just try to count how many songs and libations are named after Manhattan.

However, New York City is technically made up of four other boroughs that are equally amazing as Manhattan: Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx and Staten Island.

Monarchists are getting ready to doff their caps to Her Majesty and republicans are hoping the sunshine will last because most Brits get to enjoy a four-day weekend, thanks to a celebratory public holiday.

The New York Observer columnist’s latest book, Gay Men Don’t Get Fat, is a tongue-in-cheek guide to eating the gay way, which, according to Doonan, involves eating lighter, low carb and less fatty foods.

The unloved home of the Euro has Germany's best museums outside Berlin.
Frankfurt-am-Main, home to the German and European central banks is about as unloved as the Euro at the moment. And a great big € symbol dominates the heart of the financial district. But beyond the corporate offices, Frankfurt is a surprisingly liveable city with good shopping and Germany's best selection of museums outside Berlin.
