Brooklyn’s admiration for diversity and art is adored by millions!
Since the late 1990s, Brooklyn’s large loft-style apartments, comparatively low rents, and public transit attracted its now vibrant artistic community – especially in the Williamsburg neighborhood. With more than 2.6 million people, the borough is encompassed by a diverse group of residents who enjoy culture and arts, international cuisines, and yearly celebrations with neighbors and close friends.
Brooklyn also provides a beautifully scenic environment which is home to some of New York’s most attractive parks and landmarks, such as Grand Army Plaza and Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum and Botanic Garden, plus the endless rows of elegant brownstones that provide a lovely backdrop within this exciting community. Sports enthusiasts will enjoy game days for the Nets and Islanders at Barclays Center, or a trip to Coney Island for a Brooklyn Cyclones baseball game.
Of course, the quirky, artistic image that has become Brooklyn has merit. The northern section of the borough is packed with everything from bars to rock clubs to pop-up art galleries and boutiques. Brooklyn is also home to numerous symphony halls and museums.

Living in Brooklyn
Brooklyn may have one of the best mass transportation setups in the world. Every subway line except the 7 Train passes through the borough, and with easy transfers to express trains at Atlantic Avenue, most of New York City is just 30 minutes away. Atlantic Avenue is also home to Brooklyn’s own Long Island Railroad terminal, and the commuter line provides even faster access to Manhattan, a quick trip to JFK Airport, and direct routes to Long Island’s beaches. For those few residents who don’t live within a few blocks of a subway system, buses fill in the gaps. Brooklynites don’t need to sell their cars either — while you’ll only want to use your car when you head out of the city, most luxury buildings offer private parking spaces or garages.
