Brooklyn

4.4
Parks · Piers & Boardwalks · Historic Walking Areas
Borough of Trees
Though it may be less popular or touristy than its big brother Manhattan, Brooklyn boasts of one of the largest and hippest art districts in the United States. Very much a city in its own right, this neighbor of New York City is home to over 2.5 million people, making it one of the most populous urban areas in the country. Always a major draw for newcomers from around the world, the borough contains a huge community of Russians and Ukrainians which gave birth to a neighborhood popularly nicknamed "Little Russia." With increasing gentrification of its districts, many of Brooklyn's neighborhoods now attract a mix of ethnicities, creating a colorful patchwork of cultures, cuisines, and religions. To personalize your trip to Brooklyn, create itinerary details specific to you using our United States trip planner.
