Brooklyn is currently New York’s second favorite of its five boroughs. Up until 1883 this area could only be reached by ferry, but all that changed when the Brooklyn Bridge, one of New York’s most iconic landmarks was build. Brooklyn is a melting pot of nationalities and cultures. Its popularity has increased enormously in recent years and so have the prices of real estate. Williamsburg is its most popular neighborhood. Formerly a community of Jews, Puerto Ricans and Italians, in 1900 artists from Manhattan began to move to this area. Now it’s the place to be for hipsters, creatives, musicians, artisans and artists. Bedford Avenue, one stop with the L train from Manhattan into Brooklyn, is the center of Williamsburg. Brooklyn is slower-paced, it breathes quiet and peace compared to the bustle of Manhattan. There are some great hotspots here that are not to be missed!
