Brooklyn

Neighborhood Highlights

« »
 
  • print

Known for its cultural cachet, New York City’s largest borough features trendsetting live-music venues, bars and vintage-clothing stores in Williamsburg and family eateries. The vast expanse of Prospect Park in Park Slope looks even more beautiful under snow cover and is home to the borough’s only remaining natural forest. There are the galleries of formerly industrial DUMBO, the new cafes and historic brownstones of Bedford-Stuyvesant and the breathtaking NYC skyline views from Brooklyn Heights—another architecturally notable neighborhood. The latter is best accessed via a walk from Lower Manhattan over the landmark Brooklyn Bridge, which is pedestrian-friendly, but bundle up for a breezy winter walk.
