Revitalized urban chic and cherished old-world nostalgia. Trendy, hip-hop evolution and staunchly protected traditions. Brooklyn is equal parts cutting-edge and pure history…and it is the most asked about destination among our guests when looking for things to do in NYC. Home to several different neighborhoods, each bursting with its own unique personality reflected in cuisine, art and music, Brooklyn is a kaleidoscope of cultures with dozens of nationalities and even more languages. Connected to Manhattan by the iconic Brooklyn Bridge in 1883 and officially becoming a borough in 1898, Brooklyn today is microcosm of global diversity, yet still retains the old world mystique of what New York was like back in the day.
