Brooklyn

Overview:  Located on the western bank of Long Island and just south of Manhattan, Brooklyn is a metropolis for both work and play. At 71 square miles, Brooklyn is the second largest of the five New York City boroughs and holds the largest population, with just over 2.5 million residents. Family-friendly, this hip borough is filled with famous attractions to enjoy including Coney Island, Brooklyn’s Children Museum, Prospect Park, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. There is also a large immigrant population, driving the creation of dozens of small cultural hubs, especially in central and southern Brooklyn.

With 18 subway lines, a public bus network that covers the entire borough and New York City’s famous yellow taxi cabs, over three-quarters of Brooklyn’s residents rely on the public transportation as their means for travel.

A variety of real estate is available including brownstones with rare front gardens, townhouses, apartment complexes, condos, and loft apartments in renovated warehouses. Brooklyn hosts many diverse neighborhoods including the northwestern neighborhoods of Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope and Williamsburg.
