Five Reasons to Visit Brooklyn
Five Reasons to Visit Brooklyn
Brooklyn is the most populous borough in New York with more than 2.5 million inhabitants, and it is the second best-known borough after Manhattan. It is part of the 5 districts in which Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island are also found.
Its name comes from “Breuckelen”, which is the name the Dutch gave it in honor of a city in the Netherlands (it was the Dutch who settled in this area). The first European settlers settled there in 1634. Until 1898, Brooklyn was an independent city. But later, throughout the 19th century, thanks to the boom in factories and industries on the banks of the East River, Brooklyn grew enormously and thus absorbed the small neighboring cities.
Some time later and thanks to the inauguration of the Brooklyn Bridge in 1883, the city became better connected with Manhattan.
In recent years it has taken on a very important place and today many of its neighborhoods have become residences for wealthier families fleeing the chaos of Manhattan. Additionally, Brooklyn has been the birthplace of famous artists such as Barbra Streisand, Eddie Murphy, Cyndi Lauper, Jennifer Connelly, and Woody Allen. Among the most important athletes it is worth mentioning Michael Jordan and Mike Tyson.
Brooklyn, as its own inhabitants say, is “home to everyone from everywhere”, which is clearly reflected in the cultural diversity of its neighborhoods.
Some of Brooklyn’s must-see neighborhoods include:
Dumbo is located at the foot of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges and is the gateway to Brooklyn for most travelers.
It is one of the most popular in Brooklyn. Its official name is “Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass” but to shorten it they decided to call it with its abbreviation “Dumbo”. It is an industrial area of recent industrialization that has become one of the most attractive in the city.
Walking you can find the famous DUMBO lofts (old factories) that are the favorite places of artists, architects and designers.
Another reason to visit this neighborhood is its art galleries and stunning views of Manhattan across the East River.

Williamsburg has become in recent years a very picturesque and cultural renaissance neighborhood where alternative art, graffiti, retro shops, and organic foods stand out.
