Similar Neighborhoods
Brooklyn is a big city in its own right. If each New York borough were a freestanding city Brooklyn would be the third-largest city in America by population. It has its own downtown (Downtown Brooklyn), trendy neighborhoods (Williamsburg, DUMBO) and transitional areas that are rapidly becoming desirable (Bedford-Stuyvesant). There are urban and suburban areas, post-industrial lofts and leafy residential streets. It’s not as high-energy as Manhattan, but there’s a neighborhood for all types.

Transportation
In Brooklyn, as in Manhattan, mass transit is widely used. The subway and bus systems are extensive both within Brooklyn and between Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens. It’s not as easy to get to Brooklyn by train you need the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR), which has limited service there.

Driving in Brooklyn is easier than in Manhattan, and street parking is more plentiful. Car/bus traffic enters Brooklyn from Manhattan via the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Manhattan Bridge and the Williamsburg Bridge. Car/bus traffic enters from Queens via surface roads.

Cost of Living
New York generally is one of the most expensive places in the US. Based on the US Bureau of Labor and Statistics Consumer Expenditure Survey for 2011-12, New Yorkers spent on average over $600 per month on food (about $250 of which was outside the home), just under $2,000 per month on housing and some $670 per month on transportation (including over $90 per month on public transit).

While not as expensive as Manhattan, Brooklyn’s no bargain either. In 2010 Brooklyn’s composite cost of living (based on annual data) was 81.7% higher than the average US urban area. Also in 2010 the Brooklyn cost of housing was a healthy 217.8% higher than the average US urban area.

Brooklyn’s composite cost of living in 2010 was 16.15% lower than Manhattan’s but 14.28% higher than Queens’s. Brooklyn housing cost 17.82% less than Manhattan housing but 37.69% more than Queens housing.

It’s cheaper than Manhattan, but still not cheap.

Safety
New York generally is very safe by comparison to other large cities, and Brooklyn generally is safe. In 2011 New York had the lowest crime rate among the US’s 25 largest cities according to the FBI Uniform Crime Reports. You should check out crime statistics for individual neighborhoods, as Brooklyn’s neighborhoods vary and there are certain neighborhoods that are definitely transitional.
