What's New!

Brooklyn (its name as borough of the city of New York; it is also Kings County, a county of the state of New York), the "Borough of Homes and Churches," is one of the five Boroughs of New York. It used to be and still feels much like a city in its own right, with approximately 2.5 million inhabitants. If separated from the rest of New York City, Brooklyn would be the 4th-most populous American city.

Brooklyn NY

Brooklyn NY was once a separate city independent of the City of New York. The  cities merged at the end of the nineteenth century, forever after lamented by Brooklynites as “The Great Mistake of 1898”. Although this city_of_newyork is very diverse, what makes Brooklyn NY so different from the other boroughs are its distinct cultural neighborhoods. Manhattan is frequently referred to as “the city” by residents of the other boroughs — for example, in the phrase “I’m going to the city”. Many have a great deal of pride in their borough. Most most New Yorkers consider Brooklynites to have an identity distinct from that of other New Yorkers. In any case, remember while speaking to Brooklynites that referring to Manhattan as “the city” is acceptable but calling Manhattan “New York City” is not. Be careful not to confuse Brooklyn NY and the Bronx – they are very different parts of New York City.

City_of_Newyork

City_of_Newyork was an independent incorporated city (and previously an authorized village and town within the provisions of the New York State Constitution) until January 1, 1898, when, after a long political campaign and public relations battle during the 1890s, according to the new Municipal Charter of “Greater New York”, Brooklyn was consolidated with the other cities, boroughs, and counties to form the modern “City of New York,” surrounding the Upper New York Bay with five constituent boroughs. The borough continues, however, to maintain a distinct culture. Many Brooklyn NY neighborhoods are ethnic enclaves.

York brooklyn

York Brooklyn is derived from the original Dutch colonial name Breuckelen, meaning marshland in Dutch. Established in 1646, the name first appeared in print in 1663.York Brooklyn would rank as the third-most populous city in the U.S., behind Los Angeles and Chicago.

Brooklynites

Brooklynites have a great deal of pride in their borough. Most most New Yorkers consider Brooklynites to have an identity distinct from that of other New Yorkers.

A complex and quixotic urban animal found ranging across southeast New York City, the Brooklynite has obtained a sort of mythological status, representing the “you tawkin’ to me?” attitude for which the city is world-renowned. For over three years, writer Anthony LaSala and photographer Seth Kushner trekked tirelessly across the borough, documenting these charismatic characters in The Brooklynites, a collection of images, interviews, and essays.
