Stunning architecture, sprawling parks, organic-mindedness, communal awareness, grittiness, artistic haven, urban character, homestyle cooking—whatever it is you seek, Brooklyn is a great place to call home.
Home to some of the most recognizable American landmarks, majestic town homes, vibrant business and arts, Brooklyn has long beaches, lazy afternoons, and unforgettable neighborhoods. With its tenacious urban identity, Brooklyn is diverse and dynamic, cheerfully dotted with attractive shopping venues, trendy boutiques, delectable restaurants, hopping bars, coveted galleries, spectacular entertainment, and fine cultural institutions.
Offering its residents the benefits of big city living in the elusive “small town” atmosphere, the borough is a tourist destination, and a popular residential center that draws myriads to visit and eventually move. Simply put, Brooklyn is one of those hidden-in-plain-view pockets of the world, where natural and cultural attractions live side-by-side with residents, where art really transposes and lives alongside its creator. With Prospect Park their favorite backyard, Brooklynites get to enjoy a modern flair steeped in history.
If destinations like Brooklyn Bridge, Barclays Center, Jane's Carousel, Brooklyn Heights Promenade, historic Green-Wood Cemetery, Coney Island… carry a promise of a good time and an even better living, then come and get a taste of beautifully preserved and lovingly renovated brownstones and the borough's cutting-edge architecture. And no, you can't fuggedaboutit. It's Brooklyn, after all.
