Brooklyn is one of the 5 boroughs of New York City located on the western side of Long Island. The Brooklyn Bridge was built in 1883 and connects to Manhattan. Neighborhoods range from high-end DUMBO, Williamsburg, to beachfront Coney Island and its amusement parks. Leafy, row house–filled districts include Brooklyn Heights and Park Slope.

There’s plenty of room in the Long Meadow and Nethermead to bliss out on a patch of grass, while the Ravine, a towering indigenous forest, offers a woodland respite unparalleled in the borough. City planner Robert Moses was behind 20th-century additions like the zoo and the band shell, which hosts free top-notch concerts all summer long.

Not simply a bridge crossing a river, Opened in 1883, the Brooklyn Bridge was a feat of engineering: It was the first structure to cross the East River and, at the time, the longest suspension bridge in the world, this span is an elegant reminder of New York’s history of architectural innovation. Now it attracts thousands of tourists and locals, who enjoy spectacular views of lower Manhattan and other city landmarks (such as the Statue of Liberty and Governors Island) as they stroll its more-than-mile-long expanse.

Those searching for a little peace and quiet would do well to spend a few hours at this verdant oasis. The garden—which abuts two other neighborhood gems: the Brooklyn Museum and Prospect Park—was founded in 1910 and features hundreds of types of flora, laid out over 52 acres. Each spring, crowds descend on the space for the Sakura Matsuri Festival, during which hundreds of trees bloom along the Cherry Esplanade.

Coney Island—New York City’s legendary amusement district—is not a theme park. The home of the Cyclone roller coaster, the Wonder Wheel, the original Nathan’s Famous hot dogs and the Boardwalk is something different: a seaside playground that’s also a real-life NYC neighborhood. Its many attractions have made it a warm-weather favorite for all, featuring see-it-to-believe-it sideshows, beachfront stands selling funnel cake, one of the City’s oldest and best pizzerias and the Brooklyn Cyclones baseball team. On a bright summer day, no place feels more electric.

Located in a former military residence on the grounds of the Navy Yard, this small museum chronicles the mighty history of the former shipbuilding center—which, at its peak during World War II, employed close to 70,000 people. Permanent exhibits examine the yard’s origins and significance throughout history; for example, a number of massive vessels, including the Civil War ironclad USS Monitor and the Pearl Harbor casualty USS Arizona, were built at the Navy Yard.
