Want to learn more about Brooklyn? One of New York City’s five boroughs, Brooklyn is the most populous. Over 2.5 million residents call it their home. To put that into perspective, Houston, the 4th largest city in the US has a population of 2.3 million. So yes, Brooklyn is a big city in its own right.
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.

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? Well, there’s plenty to do. 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.
The park is huge, with a 50+ acre lake, a zoo, and endless swaths of grass to sit down read a book and enjoy a picnic. Brooklyn is also home to Coney Island – the iconic amusement park which we’ve all seen in so many movies. And the city will soon be home to a professional sports team when the New Jersey Nets move to their new stadium in Brooklyn.
