When people think about visiting New York City, they know that Brooklyn has to be on the list. Not only is Brooklyn a great place to visit and get to know, but also the perfect place to live, with modernist and Indie touches everywhere.
Here you have a list of interesting places to visit and things to do, both if you live in Brooklyn or if you are just visiting.
Hang Out in Dumbo
At the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge, you can find one of the best places to hang out in Brooklyn, the popular neighborhood Dumbo. One of the things you can do is take a photo on Washington Street between Front and Water street. It’s an enviable postcard shot with the Manhattan Bridge and the Empire State Building in the background. The nearest subways are the A, C, F 2 and 3, so you will have no problem getting there. The Brooklyn Bridge itself and the Brooklyn Bridge Park underneath it are other must-see places to go in this borough. You will definitely enjoy one of the most beautiful views of New York.
Situated northwest of Brooklyn, Bushwick is an urban art museum; it has urban art painted everywhere, and there is no doubt that you will enjoy exploring and discovering all the amazing murals.
If you are lucky enough to live in Bushwick, you’ll know that it also offers thrift stores, coffee shops, grocery stores, spas, gyms like the one found at Blink Fitness, and more. Transportation is very convenient and easy to get anywhere you’d like without any problem. You can find instructions about how to get there, schedules, and more relevant information on the internet.
Visit Museums and Enjoy Coney Island
Brooklyn offers many interesting museums for both adults and children, such as the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Children’s Museum, New York Transit Museum, and the Coney Island Museum. Both tourists and locals can enjoy these amazing museums and learn about New York history.
And, speaking of Coney Island, it’s pretty obviously a huge part of Brooklyn’s history that is worth a visit. It’s a classic amusement park, and taking a stroll through Coney Island is one of those must-do can’t-miss things in Brooklyn.
