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

Even in Brimaquonx, Staten Island gets no love ... I suppose it is supposed to be the "i"

It's easy to blank on quizzes like this, especially with short time limits. I should have known all of them, but then there were 5 secs left and I couldn't think

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.

Plus both of New York's airports are there, the Mets play there, the US Open is played there, the World's Fair was there, the Belmont Stakes is run there. You've got King of Queens, Coming to America (in which Eddie Murphy comes to Queens...to find his queen). It just seems to get a lot of mention in media.

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?

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