Over the past decade, Brooklyn, the most populous of the five New York City boroughs, has become The Place To Be in New York. Brooklyn is where creative, edgy, interesting and amazing things happen.
Fact is that even Manhattanites need to admit that these days, Brooklyn really is the NYC place to be or to be seen. So here we go:
Brooklyn was originally named Breukelen, after a small town in the Netherlands. If Brooklyn would have been an independent city, it would have ranked fourth in America with over 2.6 million residents.
Brooklyn is, in fact, New York City’s most thriving, electric, energetic, and culturally rich area, and the center of Brooklyn’s cultural and creative crescent is found along the East River.
