This borough at the northernmost tip of the city and the only one attached to the mainland (Manhattan and Staten Island are each islands and Queens and Brooklyn are part of Long Island) has more parkland than any of the other boroughs, a renowned botanical garden, a world-famous zoo, stately mansions, historic sites, a Little Italy, beaches, even an island reminiscent of a New England fishing village. The Bronx also has a very high hispanic population. However it's not all rosy: symbolic with urban decay and violence The Bronx still harbours criminals and, like any other borough, is a potential source of income for any aspiring player in the underworld.
The 'Home to Everyone From Everywhere!' Brooklyn is considered New York City's most popular borough with approximately 2.5 million residents. Before its consolidation with New York in 1898, Brooklyn was an independent city and was dubbed the 'City of Trees', the 'City of Homes' and the 'City of Churches'. To this day Brooklyn holds a distinct character of its own, despite its consolidation with New York. Like the rest of the densely populated New York City, Brooklyn's population salad bowl of blacks, whites, Hispanics, Asians and Europeans amongst other groups. Powerful people have called this place home. You wouldn't want to disappoint them, would you?
Referred to as 'The City' by residents of the other four boroughs, Manhattan is the commercial, cultural and financial center of New York City. It is also the headquarters of the United Nations and the seat of city government. Manhattan is home to many famous landmarks, tourist attractions, museums, universities and has the largest central business district in the United States. Staten Island is the most suburban in character of the five boroughs. It is connected to Brooklyn by the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and to Manhattan via the free Staten Island Ferry. Until 2001, Staten was home to the Fresh Kills Landfill, formerly the largest landfill in the world.
Residents of Queens have been known to identify more with their neighborhood than with the borough as a whole. Howard Beach and Middle Village are home to large Italian-American populations, Rockaway Beach has a large Irish-American population, Astoria, in the northwest, is traditionally home to one of the largest Greek populations outside of Greece, and is home to a growing population of young professionals from Manhattan. Maspeth is home to many European immigrants, including a large Polish population. Several large companies have their headquarters in Queens. But for every Queen there is a King - are you up for the job?

Compton's decline was attributed to an erosion of it's tax base, with more white families leaving after the Watts riots in 1965. The middle-class black families, which previously made up a large portion of Compton's population, also moved away to seek more desirable locations. After that Compton spiraled into crime, poverty climbing to highs right alongside the crime rate. Rival gangs formed up, and crime saw a sudden surge with the introduction of Crack Cocaine during the 20th Century. Now Compton is ranked as one of the deadliest cities in the Country, ranking in at #15 in 2008.
