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.
