Brooklyn, NY, borough guide

Brooklyn, NY, may seem like a foreign land to Manhattanites, so here’s your guide to the borough’s neighborhoods

Brooklyn, NY, is Manhattan’s neighbor but a notable borough in its own right. If it were its own city, it would be the third-most populous one in the country. And every neighborhood in the city wants to be the next Williamsburg (at least until the L train shuts down). When you consider the best restaurants in Brooklyn, the sick spots to see graffiti and all the iconic Brooklyn attractions, you’ll realize why hipsters flock to Kings County.

Ahem. You clearly don't know history. The Bronx was annexed into New York City long before Brooklyn was.

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
