Fun Facts and History of Northwestern Brooklyn

Founded by Dutch settlers and initially known as the village of Breuckelen, Brooklyn got its start in its northwestern region. Once the American Revolution started, this area of Brooklyn saw some of the fiercest fighting in the early days of the war. George Washington’s forces took some heavy losses during The Battle of Long Island, being pushed back to Brooklyn Heights before having to escape to Manhattan.

After the war, Brooklyn’s population exploded due to an influx of immigrants and the opportunities for industry that were popping up. Brooklyn continued to grow, slowly incorporating the towns and villages that make up the neighborhoods we know today. Brooklyn became part of Greater New York city in 1898.

While still mostly a place for industry and business, many residents of Northwestern Brooklyn faced a lot of hardship in the 1900’s due to discriminatory housing policies, over policing, and racial tensions. However, thanks to the efforts of area activists and leaders, this part of the borough has long been a peaceful, diverse place to plant roots. Today, Northwestern Brooklyn is full of energy and just keeps getting better.
