Things to do in Brooklyn

The most populated borough of New York, Brooklyn is located on Long Island, between Manhattan and Queens. This vast borough has many treasures to offer to its visitors: great museums, beautiful parks, and impressive cultural venues.

Brooklyn Bridge area

Located on the shore below the famous Brooklyn Bridge, the Brooklyn Bridge Park offers a fantastic view over Manhattan and the Financial Center. It also boasts great outdoor space, perfect for a walk, a jog, some skating or even a volleyball game. That is also one of the docking points of the East River Ferry which, for the cost of a metro ticket, can take you to Manhattan or other parts of New York. Nearby, make sure to take a stroll in the characteristic streets of the Dumbo neighborhood.

Prospect Park

In the heart of Brooklyn, Prospect Park is a 585-acre green oasis and an invitation to long strolls. The main attractions include the Grand Army Plaza, West Drive, the Botanical Garden, and the lake. The many facilities of the park allow for a broad range of activities, such as roller skating, bike rentals, and kayaking. Adjacent to Prospect Park, the neighborhood of Park Slope is worth a walk for its characteristic brownstone houses.

Green-Wood Cemetery

The Green-Wood Cemetery is almost 200 years old. Once a rural cemetery, it is now surrounded by Brooklyn's neighborhoods but has kept its unique romantic charm. Get a map of the cemetery and venture in this beautiful park, catching from time to time a splendid view on the Statue of Liberty.

Museums

The New York Transit Museum will delight all trains and civil engineering enthusiasts. Located in an actual subway station, it features old metro carriages in historical settings and explains the history of public transport in New York. Grownups will enjoy the visit as much as children! The Brooklyn Museum is located at the edge of Prospect Park. Make sure to check it out as it often displays impressive temporary exhibits.

Coney Island

On the South of Brooklyn, Coney Island is a former island now connected to the main Long Island. You will find there the world-famous Luna Park of Coney Island featuring dozens of attractions, including some iconic rides like the Parachute Jump or The Cyclone rollercoaster. There is also a pleasant, though often crowded, sandy beach.

Arts and culture

If you like street art, don't leave Brooklyn without visiting the Bushwick Collective. Located in the Bushwick neighborhood, it consists of an impressive street art collection featuring dozens of bold and inspiring creations covering the walls of several streets. For an enchanting musical experience, attend one of the Brooklyn Tabernacle's church shows for an incredible gospel choir.

Food and beer

Foodies will fall in love with Brooklyn's food scene. Thanks to the rich tradition of multiculturalism, combined with a more recent hipster trend, you will find options for all types of cuisines and diets. Located in the Greenpoint neighborhood, the Brooklyn Brewery organizes tasting sessions and sales of dozens of local beers.
