Brooklyn

Many people say New York is the greatest city in the world and many more say Brooklyn is the greatest borough. East of Manhattan and south of Queens, this borough is insanely popular. If you’re looking for gourmet dining, innovative art shows, or just a quieter alternative to Manhattan, then Brooklyn is the place to be.


Atmosphere of Brooklyn

Brooklyn is a big city in its own right. Kings County is the 2nd most densely populated county in the United States and, if Brooklyn were its own city, it would be the third largest by population. Brooklyn’s size is why its neighborhoods are so diverse and dynamic. The borough, at 70 square miles, has its own downtown, a beach, a ferris wheel, a botanical garden, and its own sprawling parks.

Brooklyn is known for its character. As Manhattan becomes more and more a borough exclusively for the wealthy, young artists and performers have been moving to the outer boroughs, especially Brooklyn. New cafes, bars, and restaurants are opening every week, and there is a culture of art and creation that’s ever present.


Transportation Options in Brooklyn

The public transportation system of New York City is expansive and reliable. The services extend to Brooklyn, operate 24/7, and the subways allow access to most of Brooklyn’s vast neighborhoods. While you have fewer options the further you go into Brooklyn, you can still travel anywhere easily as long as you can get to The Barclay’s Center (access to the B, D, N, Q, R, 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains as well as the LIRR), Jay Street MetroTech (access to the A, C, F and R trains), or the L train.

Driving and parking is generally considered to be easier in Brooklyn, as there are more parking spots and less heavy traffic. Uber and Lyft are widely used in parts of Brooklyn as are alternative local car services.

The last decade saw a dramatic increase in NYC support for cyclists which is why Brooklyn has seen countless new miles of bike lanes over the last few years. That, as well as the expansion of Citibike to Brooklyn, creates an easy and quick alternative to other transportation methods in the area, especially when there is no direct subway line to your destination.


Brooklyn Safety

While crime in Brooklyn is slightly worse than it is in Manhattan, it’s still a very safe place to live and travel. Violent crime is down in all sections of Brooklyn and the majority of crime in the area is vandalism.

Brooklyn has dozens of hospitals all over the borough where you can receive top-shelf care from a world class doctor. Some of these facilities include branches of New York Presbyterian and NYU Langone, but places such as the Brooklyn Hospital Center also have great facilities should you ever need them.

Fun Facts and History of Brooklyn

The Lenape people originally occupied this area, along with most of what we know as New York City. When the Dutch colonized the area in the early 1600’s. The borough of Brooklyn was then just a small colony called Breuckelen. The British took over in 1664, and by that time Brooklyn had become a decently sized town. It was incorporated into Kings County along with eleven other towns that would eventually become the neighborhoods of Brooklyn.

After the Revolution, Brooklyn continued to increase in size, annexing smaller towns on Long Island while also maintaining a relationship with Manhattan. In 1883 the Brooklyn Bridge was completed, joining the city together even more. In 1898, the citizens of Brooklyn voted to join Manhattan, and other boroughs, to form the greater New York City.

Since then, Brooklyn has been a major player in the arts community, the fight for civil rights for the black, LGBTQ+, and immigrant communities, and for affordable housing in NYC. Brooklyn gets high marks for beautiful parks, phenomenal institutions of higher education, and for world class sports teams. Tootsie Rolls were also created here, so that’s fun.
