Brooklyn is the most populous of New York City's five boroughs, and it boasts the greatest diversity of culture and an engaging history. In fact, this history is reflected in Brooklyn homes for sale to this day. From landmark 19th century row houses, to traditional brownstone walk-ups, the properties in Brooklyn are time-honored and charming. Originally populated by Dutch settlers, "Breuckelen" was not considered a part of New York City until 1898, yet today remains an integral part in the city's art and cultural scene. The community maintains a Dutch motto - "Eendraght Maeckt Maght" - which means "In Unity There Is Strength" and Brooklynites live by the words. The friendly community spirit, present in this sizeable area of the city, is why so many people choose Brooklyn real estate.
From houses and condos, to duplexes and co-ops, Brooklyn properties are as diverse as the ethnicities of the borough's residents. There are a variety of multi-family homes and co-ops, which ensure that it is not uncommon to know your neighbors. The strong sense of community has been fostered through these shared properties that promote neighborly living. Furthermore, residents are able to afford amenities which they wouldn't if they were to buy a single-family home.
There are also options for single-family residences in Brooklyn, and the classic brownstone walk-ups in the Greenpoint historic district are not to be missed. In addition, Brooklyn homes for sale often have backyards - a feature difficult to find in the rest of the city.
It is not just the Brooklyn homes that are rich with history, but the attractions as well. Coney Island was established in the early 1900s making it one of America's first amusement parks, and remains operational to this day. Now home to innovative exhibitions and outstanding performances, Coney Island describes itself as a multi-arts center and is a mecca for pop culture enthusiasts.
Brooklyn is home to one of the most recognizable landmarks in the nation: the Brooklyn Bridge. Completed in 1883, the bridge connects the borough to Manhattan, ensuring an easy journey for visitors and commuters alike. The views from Brooklyn Heights Promenade, including the Statue Of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline, are remarkable and unforgettable.
Despite being populous, Brooklyn properties are still surrounded by natural green areas such as the Brooklyn Botanical Garden and Prospect Park. The botanical gardens are spread over 42 acres and include a 1 acre rose garden, a Japanese hill and pond, a vast bonsai tree collection and a cherry tree esplanade. Prospect Park covers 585 acres of land and is home to Prospect Park Zoo, and Brooklyn's only lake. The second most famous park in New York after Central Park, Prospect Park is visited by thousands of people every day.
