Brooklyn is one of the five Boroughs into which the city of New York is divided. While it is the district with the most population, it is not the largest area. In the last decade, Brooklyn has grown exponentially with thousands of tourist options for those of us who visit it. It’s a beautiful place filled with old architecture, beautiful parks and great food! It is very well connected to Manhattan by 3 bridges and subways, so getting to the different neighborhoods of Brooklyn is fairly simple.
The most popular destinations to visit in Brooklyn are:
Due to its proximity to Manhattan, Dumbo is the neighborhood that has probably grown the most and receives the most visitors. With its beautiful coastline overlooking Manhattan, it’s definitely a must on any trip!
Very easy to get to by just crossing the Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan by car or just walking!
Also at the intersection of Washington and Water you can get a very sought-after photograph of the Empire State Building inside the Manhattan Bridge. Dumbo park has great access to the river and amazing views of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridge as well as the NYC Skyline! Great place to visit at night!
Restaurants are abundant!
