Brooklyn

Brooklyn — Move over, Manhattan. Brooklyn is New York City’s new “it” borough, not to mention the biggest (with more than 2.5 million residents, it’s a city in its own right). Sure, some of the dozen or so diverse nabes in the County of Kings are still sorta ‘hood, but, recently, a mass migration of Manhattan’s cool young creative types lured by lower rents has unleashed a steady stream of urban renewal and spawned a host of unique hotspots. From Williamsburg’s funky bars and hip restaurants, to DUMBO’s thriving art scene, Park Slope’s shopping, and Coney Island’s famous sideshows (which, unlike the rest, have been around for ages), our Brooklyn Travel Guide shows this borough is definitely worth the short trek via cab or subway for an alternative taste of the Big Apple.

Why Go

For vintage boutiques, hip eats, unique art galleries, and lower prices just a bridge’s length across the East River.
