Brooklyn, New York

We're proud to call Brooklyn—and specifically, the borough's northernmost neighborhood of Greenpoint—home. But we're also well aware of the fact that if Brooklyn were it's own city, it'd be the second-densest and fourth most-populated in the United States. Yeah.

For that reason, it'd be kind of insane and ambitious to attempt a definitive guide to Brooklyn. There are so many neighborhoods in the borough—Bed-Stuy, Fort Greene, Red Hook, Crown Heights, Ditmas Park, Cobble Hill, Clinton Hill—that we won't ever claim to know the whole thing intimately.

Instead, here's an ever-growing list of some our favorite spots in the neighborhoods we do know well: Bushwick, Williamsburg, and of course, Greenpoint. Plus, an occasional outlier (or two) from the aforementioned neighborhoods thrown in for good measure.
