Brooklyn is actually larger than one might think. After Manhattan it is the most densely populated neighborhood with almost 3 million people and several neighborhoods – the nicest ones located along the East River.
Brooklyn Heights with its charming brownstone houses is a quaint area that has a walkway with stunning views of downtown Manhattan.
Below is the waterfront Brooklyn Bridge Park where you can have walk, enjoy a picnic or listen to a concert. One of New York’s best hotels is here – 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge. From the rooms you have a spectacular view of the bridge and Downtown Manhattan.
If you continue past the Brooklyn Bridge, you’ll get to another cool area: DUMBO (Down Under Manhattan Bridge)
But I have to admit; my favorite area is still hip Williamsburg with its many great hotels. On Bedford or Flatbush Avenue, are plenty of trendy shops, cool bars and brunch places with relaxed atmosphere.

Situated on the Brooklyn waterfront, Red Hook is a place full of character, where an old, industrial past meets a rich and vibrant present.
