An Introduction to Brooklyn

An Introduction to Brooklyn

Over the past decade, Brooklyn, the most populous of the five New York City boroughs, has become The Place To Be in New York. Brooklyn is where creative, edgy, interesting and amazing things happen. Fact is that even Manhattanites need to admit that these days, Brooklyn really is the NYC place to be or to be seen.

Brooklyn was originally named Breukelen, after a small town in The Netherlands. If Brooklyn would have been an independent city, it would have ranked fourth in America with over 2.6 million residents. It is in fact New York City’s most thriving, electric, energetic, and culturally rich area, and the center of Brooklyn’s cultural and creative crescent is found along the East River. Greenpoint, Williamsburg, DUMBO, Cobble Hill, Red Hook, and Brooklyn Heights, all competing for the label ‘cultural center’ and the actual ‘heart’ of Brooklyn’s hipster scene.

Brooklyn’s Green-wood Cemetery

Green-wood Cemetery
5th Avenue & 25th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11232, Phone: 718-768-7300

The beauty of Green-wood Cemetery (also referred to as Greenwood Cemetery) can only be matched by its astonishing art, impressive history, surprising architecture, and its numerous well-known residents. If you visit New York, and Brooklyn in particular, there is more to see than just the museums, and coming to Green-wood Cemetery is a must. Green-Wood was established before Manhattan’s Central Park and it was founded during the ‘rural cemetery movement’, a direction that promoted building cemeteries that looked like, and functioned as, public parks. In the middle of the 19th century, Green-wood Cemetery was a highly visited tourist attraction, much like New York upstate’s Niagara Falls, with more than 500,000 visitors annually. Everybody who was of any importance in New York wished to get buried at Green-wood, so the beautiful cemetery is home to many of Brooklyn and New York’s historical figures, celebrities, and inventors.
