Most newcomers would be surprised to learn that Brooklyn is about five times larger than the island of Manhattan. (It's true: Brooklyn encompasses 96.9 square miles to Manhattan's 22.83.) Size alone makes for hundreds of things to do and neighborhoods to choose. Brooklyn has the best of many worlds -from Clinton Hill, Fort Greene, and BedStuy's manicured brownstone blocks (consistently voted "the ...greenest" in Brooklyn) to high-rises and hip dining and fashion scenes throughout Williamsburg and DUMBO to the industrial-meets-suburban communities throughout Greenpoint, Red Hook, and Bushwick.View more
