Discover Our Beautiful Borough
Brooklyn Has Endless Appeal to Offer
The borough of Brooklyn is well-known worldwide as New York City’s nerve center for hip hangouts, quirky cafés, and the best brunches on the east coast. But Brooklyn is so much more. This iconic locale has a deep history borne of a pioneering spirit and a diversity of perspective. That’s thanks to the melting pot of rich cultures that have shaped the borough into a mosaic of eclectic neighborhoods, each possessed of its own part to play in a suite of her larger street-level symphony.
While here, be sure to explore and soak up the unique feel of Brooklyn’s singular vibe. Borrow one of our signature NU Bikes, and pedal the Brooklyn Bridge while taking in the ground-level buzz.
Brooklyn visitors and residents alike are always spoiled for choice when it comes to finding amazing ways to enjoy the area. Art aficionados will be endlessly fascinated by the creativity on offer at Brooklyn Museum, with more than 1.5 million individual works over its 560,000 square foot space. Countless local galleries like MINUS Space, MoCADA, and Pioneer Works contribute to the thriving local art scene.
Into entertainment? Take a look at the events schedule on tap at the Barclays Center and soak up some sports, a concert, or other premium live entertainment. Other legendary local venues include the Brooklyn Academy of Music, BRIC, King's Theatre, and Roulette. If you’re looking for laughs, then stop by some of the country’s best comedy clubs: C’mon Everybody, Brooklyn House of Comedy, EastVille Comedy Club, or Brooklyn Comedy Collective. Alamo Draft House is also on hand if you’re looking for a premium movie-theater experience.
Of course, there’s a lot to enjoy here outside of the scheduled entertainment. Our neighborhood offers storied shopping, cafés, and cocktail hotspots just waiting to be discovered. Stroll along Court Street, Smith Street, and Atlantic Avenue, before heading to Fulton Mall or CityPoint BKLYN to round out your Brooklyn shopping spree. Make time for a picturesque stroll through DUMBO or Brooklyn Bridge Park, and check out Time Out Market for live music and local food stalls.
Along the way, take in the surrounding brownstone buildings for which Brooklyn is famous in nearby neighborhoods like Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, Park Slope, Prospect Park, and Prospect Heights. Above all, be sure to give yourself the opportunity to truly soak up the soul of NYC’s most creative borough.
