Once one of the shady boroughs of New York, Brooklyn has become a vibrant and lovely place to live, shop, work or simply hang out with artists and the creative scene.
When the Beasty Boys paid tribute to the most famous borough of New York with "No sleep til Brooklyn", tourists where a rare sight in this area beyond the Brooklyn bridge. Due to the rising prices of Manhattan's property market, Brooklyn became the new home for international artists, creatives and young families who turned a once infamous area into one of the most interesting places in the whole world. While booming Williamsburg is considered the birthplace of Hipsterism, Brooklyn's other neighborhoods are equally worth exploring if you are up for good places to shop, eat and party.
