"Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staen Island, NYC" Brooklyn Tip by dianediane

Brooklyn, New York City: 16 reviews and 16 photos

Favorite thing: Anyone who uses the term "outer boroughs" is obviously a non-native of NYC (even if they live here now). We never use it. Just remember, Brooklyn (twice the size of Paris), Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island are all in NYC. Not just Manhattan. Enjoy it all.

(Try walking across the Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan - you'll end up in Brooklyn Heights,a great neighborhood, with great vistas of Manhattan, or go to Flushing, Queens for authentic Asian - all types of - food. Walk around Williamsburg, Brooklyn to see Hispanics, tatood artsy types and Hasiidim all enmeshed in one neighborhood. The Bronx Botanical Gardens is beautiful and huge - and is next to the world-famous Bronx Zoo.)
