Brooklyn City Guide
With a population of 2.6 million, Brooklyn is the largest of NYC’s five boroughs and would be the country’s fourth-biggest city if it were an independent city. In fact, when Brooklyn merged with New York, newspaper headlines at the time called it the “Great Mistake of 1898.”
The Borough of Churches has a long history, including being home to the first major battle of the American Revolutionary War. Today it still retains its pride, culture, and diversity as a harmonious and multi-ethnic city, which is clear from its official motto “Eendraght Maeckt Maght” (“In unity there is strength”). Speaking of culture, visit the Brooklyn Philharmonic, the Brooklyn Museum, which is the 2nd largest public art museum in NYC, and the annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.
And where do you put all your medals and ribbons as year-after-year winner of the hot dog contest? In a secure self storage unit, of course!
Brooklyn is home to the New York Transit Museum, which “displays historical artifacts of Greater New York's subway,” which means that you might actually see the Brooklyn Nets jersey you left on the subway last year in a glass case. Visit Prospect Park, designed by the same fellows who created Central Park, and take in the Zoo, the Boathouse, and the Bandshell, which puts on summertime outdoor concerts.
If you prefer indoor activities, the Brooklyn Public Library is well worth a look. With millions of books in all the major languages that are spoken in this borough and 58 branches, there is one library within a half mile of every Brooklyn (or “Breuckelen,” as the Dutch-founded town was originally called) resident.
Moving to Brooklyn means that you will have to suffer the inevitable label of “hipster,” so you will definitely need to rent a unit at a self storage facility to stash your skinny jeans, scuffed Red Wing boots, Buddy Holly glasses, plastic lunchbox-slash-purse and, of course, your false mountain man beards because not everyone can grow a beard long enough to entirely hide a cashmere scarf.
