With 2.5 million residents, Brooklyn has the biggest population of New York City’s five boroughs. To put that into perspective, Houston, the 4th largest city in the US has a population of 2.3 million.

It’s a big city and a big city full of commuters. It’s estimated that more than half of the borough’s residents commute out of Brooklyn to go to work. Fortunately, the New York transit system does an exceptional job of connecting Brooklyn to Manhattan and other major surrounding work centers.

Given the added commute that comes with living in Brooklyn, why do so many seek out an apt in Brooklyn? There’s no single answer, but many relish the more laid back feel in comparison to Manhattan. The relative value of an apartment in Brooklyn is also a major draw – again, when in comparison to Manhattan. The average rent is considerably lower, and it’s easier to find bigger units with more amenities, such as dishwashers, in-unit laundry and private outside space. The combination of a relatively laid back feel, more value, and more amenities means that a lot of residents just feel like is easier to rent an apartment in Brooklyn and certainly less expensive.

Brooklyn’s more popular, and accordingly more expensive, neighborhoods include:

Brooklyn Heights
Park Slope
Fort Greene
Downtown Brooklyn

What’s there to do in Brooklyn besides brag to your Manhattan friends about your additional square footage, your dishwasher and the fact that you don’t need to buy new packs of underwear every week because you have an in-unit washer and dryer? Check out the Brooklyn Museum, grab a bite at one of the many great restaurants with outside eating. Take a stroll through Brooklyn’s equivalent of Central Park, Prospect Park, with its 50+ acre lake, a zoo, and endless swaths of grass to sit down read a book and enjoy a picnic, or catch an NBA game or concert at The Barclays Center.
