New York’s most populated borough, Brooklyn, is located on the western tip of Long Island. Up until 1898, Brooklyn was an independent city. Now, as part of New York, NY, Brooklyn is known for its diversity, culture, art and architecture. The most known parts of Brooklyn include Coney Island, one of the first amusement parks in the country.
With a population of nearly 4 million, Brooklyn real estate is primarily a bedroom community with few tall buildings. Known for its brownstone townhouses, like the popular Brooklyn Heights, you can expect real estate amenities like tree-lined streets and small apartment buildings. Brooklyn residents can enjoy a deeply rooted artistic community including funky art galleries, hip bars, popular restaurants and popular attractions like Coney Island Beach.
