All About

Living in Brooklyn, NY

Whether you're moving from across the country or from across town, there is a wealth of apartments for rent in Brooklyn. Named for the Dutch word for broken land, Brooklyn is known as the borough of churches and is New York's most populous borough with 2.6 million residents.

Arguably the most well-known landmark of Brooklyn is the Brooklyn Bridge, which was once the longest suspension bridge in the world. Across the Brooklyn Bridge is Brooklyn, which offers more affordable apartments than Manhattan. Here, discover the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the second-largest art museum in the city, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, a lush urban oasis.

If you're interested in the green spaces of New York City, consider apartments near Brooklyn's parks and beaches. Coney Island Beach is the spot for the world-famous hot dog eating contest, wooden roller coasters and a lively boardwalk. At Jamaica Bay, see thousands of migrating birds among the area's diverse habitats, and view the Statue of Liberty and New York Harbor from Brooklyn Heights Promenade.

Tour the world without ever leaving Brooklyn, where you can discover the cultures and cuisines of Asia, South and Central America, Eastern and Western Europe, Africa and the Caribbean. At The Islands, sample the city's best jerk chicken, oxtail and curries. You'll lick the plate clean after you order the warm date cake with toffee sauce and fresh cream at Moto, a French restaurant in south Williamsburg, and vegetarians will rejoice at the entree selections at Tanoreen Restaurant, a Middle Eastern and Mediterranean restaurant in Bay Ridge.

It's a big city, but we're here to make your search easier.
