Fun Facts and History of Downtown Brooklyn

Downtown Brooklyn was one of the first parts of the borough to be settled by the Dutch. When the British took over in 1664, the area was turned into the central business district for the City of Brooklyn.

Although the rest of the city was relatively indifferent to the Slave Trade, Downtown Brooklyn was the rare exception. Full of abolitionists, this neighborhood provided the massive support need to get slavery abolished in New York in 1827.

After Brooklyn became part of New York City in 1898, business ramped up in Downtown Brooklyn, but the number of people wanting to live there ramped up as well. Today, Downtown Brooklyn is equal parts commercial and residential, meaning it’s one of the busiest parts of the city.
