  respectively: Manhattan, The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island.
    1.  The borough of Manhattan shall consist of the territory  known  as
  New York county which shall contain all that part of the city and state,
  including  that  portion  of  land  commonly  known  as  Marble Hill and
  included within the county of New York and borough of Manhattan for  all
  purposes  pursuant  to  chapter  nine hundred thirty-nine of the laws of
  nineteen hundred eighty-four and further including  the  islands  called
  Manhattan  Island,  Governor's  Island,  Bedloe's  Island, Ellis Island,
  Franklin D.  Roosevelt  Island,  Randall's  Island  and  Oyster  Island,
  bounded  by  the  following  described  line: Beginning at the northerly
  United States bulkhead line of the Harlem river at the junction  of  the
  Hudson and Harlem rivers; thence along the northerly and easterly United
  States  bulkhead  lines of the Harlem river to the low-water mark on the
  westerly bank of the Spuyten Duyvil creek as it  existed  prior  to  its
  being  filled  in;  thence  along  said low-water mark of Spuyten Duyvil
  creek to the easterly United States bulkhead line of the  Harlem  river;
  thence  southerly  along the easterly United States bulkhead line of the
  Harlem river to a point where said United States bulkhead  line  of  the
  Harlem river intersects the northerly United States bulkhead line of the
  Bronx  kills;  thence  along  the  northerly  line  of the United States
  bulkhead line of the Bronx kills to the intersection  of  the  northerly
  United  States  bulkhead  line of the East river; thence across the East
  river to the low-water mark on the  shore  of  Long  Island,  so  as  to
  include  Randall's  Island and Ward's Island; thence along the low-water
  mark on the shore of Long Island to the  southerly  side  of  Red  Hook;
  thence  across  the  Upper  bay  to  the westerly boundary of the state;
  thence northerly along such westerly boundary of the state  to  a  point
  where  a  perpendicular  drawn  from  the  point  or  place of beginning
  intersects such westerly boundary of the state;  thence  easterly  along
  such perpendicular to the point or place of beginning; including all the
  islands or parts thereof situated within the aforedescribed bounds.
    2.  The  borough  of The Bronx shall consist of the territory known as
  Bronx county which shall contain all that part of  the  city  and  state
  bounded  on  the  east  by the middle of the main channel of Long Island
  sound; bounded on the south by the following described  line:  Beginning
  at  a  point  in the middle of the channel of Long Island sound where it
  intersects the middle of the channel  of  the  East  river  easterly  of
  Throgg's  neck;  thence  westerly along the middle of the channel of the
  East river to a point where such channel crosses a  straight  line  from
  the Clason point in the borough and county of the Bronx to College point
  on  Long  Island; thence southwesterly to the most easterly point of the
  United States bulkhead line of Rikers Island; thence generally southerly
  and westerly along said United States bulkhead line of Rikers Island  to
  the  most  southerly  point  of said United States bulkhead line; thence

  southwesterly  point  of  said  United  States  bulkhead  line of Rikers
  Island; thence northwesterly in a straight line to the junction  of  the
  northerly  United  States  bulkhead  line  of  the  Bronx  kills and the
