There should be a tag/category for seriously easy. Or short quizzes. Everything under 10 answers. This one, the Japanese Islands, Countries starting with Saint.. among the most recent ones.

According to this map, it would make much more sense for staten island to be part of New Jersey since it is closer to that state than to any of the five boroughs. Actually, not a bad idea!

Manhattan contains nearly 30 neighborhoods and districts. Harlem is one of them. I didn't realize how big Manhattan is until we took the Circle Line tour around it. Learned lots of interesting trivia.

It was once suggested that name for New York City should be the combination of all five borough names: Brimaquonx.

Easy way to remember the boroughs for me

People forget Staten Island. Nobody goes there. There's nothing to see. It's culturally very different than the other five boroughs. It's only known at all because it's one of the boroughs, but there's nothing else noteworthy about it. All the others have reasons to visit. The Bronx has less of note than the other three, but the Yankees play there, it has a famous zoo, and its name is so distinct that it's easy to remember.

Please accept Kings for Brooklyn

Level 85
Jan 14, 2021
Do you honestly believe that anyone who knows it's called "Kings" doesn't know it's also called "Brooklyn"? Why not put "Richmond" down then for Staten Island?

Accepting Richmond would be more justifiable. The official name of the borough was Richmond until 1975.

Brooklyn is the borough, Kings County is the county. Sure they're on the same area but they're not interchangeable

Was its own what? Long Island includes Brooklyn and Queens, but it also includes Nassau and Suffolk counties which are not part of New York City.

Would accepting just Staten be acceptable? Most "xyz Island" are acceptable with the Island (North, South, Long, etc).
