Things to Do in Brooklyn

Coney Island
Nostalgia reigns supreme in Brooklyn’s most popular seaside spot. In its early 20th-century heyday, Coney Island’s bright lights and funfairs packed in millions of visitors each summer. Today the seafront is still lined with arcades and attractions, from the rides of Luna Park to the New York Aquarium.
Brooklyn Bridge
Connecting downtown Manhattan to Brooklyn, this landmark structure has been an NYC icon since 1883. For an unforgettable evening, take the subway to the Brooklyn side before sunset. After exploring the pretty waterfront park, stroll back across the water as the lights of Manhattan shimmer into life.
Prospect Park
This sprawling park is a focal point for all Brooklyn life. Cyclists and runners rub shoulders with picnicking families in its shady groves and open meadows. Adventurous types can scramble through The Ravine’s rugged woodland, while pretty ponds provide spots to paddle, row or fish. And if all that sounds too energetic, simply spread out a blanket and snooze in the sun.

Recommended in Brooklyn

Everything was well-priced. I didn't find the Information Centre helpful at all. The people were friendly and helpful in Brooklyn, but not in Manhattan or in the area of Grand Central Station. New York, you will have to think of seating for the weary walking tourists and more public bathrooms at places of interest. That would be advantageous to the whole travel experience. Thank you.

Bodegas, delis, numerous mom and pop stores with very fair prices compared to Manhattan which is 10-15 minutes away, and national chains dot most neighborhoods in Brooklyn, which is perfect for being on a budget.

Know where you're going! Find a few main streets to get your bearing and use them to help guide you. Don't be afraid to ask local traffic cops for directions, they're all very friendly.

Not a shopper's paradise, but it reminds me of what neighborhoods were like a decade or two ago, before the chain stores took over.
