Things to Do in Brooklyn

View Map

It's been said that you're not a true New Yorker (or have never really visited New York) until you've walked across the famous Brooklyn Bridge. How is it that a bridge has come to decide such matters? Well, 1) walking the bridge gives you one of the best city views you'll ever have, and 2) it takes you straight into Brooklyn—home of Brooklynites, Brooklynese (that oh-so-lovable accent), art, culture and just about everything else. Everyone seems to have their own reason for loving Brooklyn, and we happily encourage you to check it out and find yours.
