The Visitor’s Guide to Brooklyn

We’re smack in the middle of vacation season, and this means one thing: tourists. In the last few years, New York City has consistently set record-breaking numbers for the amount of people who flock here, and, let’s face it, the big draw isn’t Manhattan anymore, it’s Brooklyn. And while most guide books only recommend a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge followed by pizza at Grimaldi’s, we think you can do better than simply going along with the fanny pack-toting hordes. So we’ve rounded up both classic and unorthodox Brooklyn destinations—including parks, restaurants, and bars—that you can go to this summer. And whether you’re a first time visitor or a Brooklyn native, you’re guaranteed to enjoy discovering this great borough we call home.
