What's not to love?

I have only lived in Brooklyn for about ten years, and while I can't claim to be a true Brooklynite, I love this place. I'm getting to know a little bit more of this borough every day and can't wait to keep exploring.

Anyone want to offer me a job to troll around the borough all day? I'll do a good job, I promise!

I have many, many restaurant tips...to keep them a little organized, I've tried to put the neighborhood in the title. Honestly, some of the best sushi is in Bensonhurst! (Tenzan) The most delicious pizza is here too (Europa and Il Coloseo), and we have some great brunch and Caribbean and French food as well. I mean everything! (Can you tell I love my food?)

Some of my best photos are in the travelogues because I know a lot of people have slower connections and can't keep changing pages to see all the pages of tips. Take a look!

Feel free to email me with any questions you have about Brooklyn. I may not have the answer, but I can probably guide you to the proper information.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Every possible kind of person, language, food, and attitude you could ever imagine!
  • Cons:Difficult to navigate and taxis often refuse to take you to anywhere other than the heights from Manhattan
  • In a nutshell:We've got the whole world in our borough

    I've been in NYC a few times but never yet crossed over the bridge into Brooklyn. Next time I will for sure.

    Fine tips, and a great view from the Wonder Wheel. When I was in college I once dated a girl from Brooklyn. But only once. It was a LONG subway ride from Morningside Heights!

    Did I just see a news item about how wild parrots have started nesting in Broolyn? It was so cool!
