Neighborhood Highlights

Brooklyn is many things to many people. There’s hip live music and vintage shopping in Williamsburg, while in Downtown Brooklyn Barclays Center hosts special events this summer, ranging from performances by the likes of Avicii, Katy Perry and Yanni to live Marvel superhero stunts. Families can head to Prospect Park, where attractions include a zoo, expansive meadows and waterways, a natural forest and free concerts. Thrill seekers will want to go straight to Coney Island, where the newest Luna Park roller coaster, the Thunderbolt, may be the scariest yet. Sightseers, meanwhile, can relax and take in harbor views during a stroll over the Brooklyn Bridge or through the stately streets of Brooklyn Heights. These are just a few activities waiting for you in the borough.
