Brooklyn, NY borough guide

Brooklyn may seem like a foreign land to diehard Manhattanites, but there's much to love in this vibrant borough

Brownstone Brooklyn

Brooklyn sits just east of Manhattan, but it hardly stands in its pricier neighbor's shadow. If the borough were its own city, it would be the third-most populous one in the country. When you consider Brooklyn is home to iconic attractions like Coney Island, the Brooklyn Bridge and Prospect Park, plus some of the best New York pizza, it's clear why hipsters continue to flock to Kings County.
