NYC's second borough continues to break out of Manhattan's shadow at a rapid pace. Boutique hotels are springing up everywhere, the music scene is thriving, and Gray Line are even running tours. The borough, which would be America's fourth-largest city if it were still independent, is home to numerous diverse communities, from Russian enclaves in Brighton Beach and Polish residents in Greenpoint, to the arty punks of Bushwick and the Bugaboo-pushing moms of Windsor Terrace. There are just as many attractions to explore and things to do, so see below and get going!

Nobody at TimeOut NY gets to define what Brooklyn is!  Enough of the BS. I'd hate to see my beloved home turned into another yuppy haven for a bunch of insecure, desperate for attention puffs.


"Arty punks of Bushwick"...Ha! You mean Arty punks of recently gentrified Bushwick, lol
