Brooklyn

4.4

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. Brooklyn is in New York State. With our world travel planner, United States vacations can be built around trips to Brooklyn and other destinations in United States.

Where to stay in Brooklyn

To enjoy views of the Manhattan skyline and have easy foot access to most of the borough's major attractions, stay in Brooklyn's downtown area. The borough's main tourism district, this area offers both luxurious accommodations for visitors wishing to splurge during their stay, as well as more economical lodgings for those traveling on a limited budget. If you don’t mind driving or taking the subway to most tourist sites, consider one of the neighborhoods outside Brooklyn's central area, such as Williamsburg or Prospect Park.
