Top 10 Brooklyn Attractions


Brooklyn, NY, is a city rich in history, culture, and unforgettable images depicting the American experience. What Brooklynite or baseball fan does not know about the fateful day when the beloved Dodgers left for Los Angeles after the 1957 baseball season? How about the city's glorious local attractions all of which are a part of the city's majestic landscape? The city has so much to offer in art, culture, and history.

The borough is the fourth large city in the United States with a population exceeding 2.5 million people. The city was independent until 1898 when it was established as a borough along with Queens, Manhattan, the Bronx, and Staten Island to make up the City of New York. The wealth of immigrants that came to the United States in the 1900's chose this magical city as their own. Today the cultural community is vast and diverse. The ethnic groups that dominate this NY borough are Americans that speak Creole, Arabic, Spanish, Chinese, and Korean. Many famous people were born here including composer George Gershwin, actress/singer Barbra Streisand, actress Lauren Bacall, director Woody Allen, comedian Jerry Seinfeld, author Norman Mailer, rapper Jay-Z, and many more celebrities.

The locals observe all of the Federal holidays and experience numerous celebrations throughout the year. Thousands of Federal and State employees do not work on the 10 Federal holidays including New Year's Day and Martin Luther King's Birthday in January, Washington's Birthday in February, Memorial Day in May, Independence Day in July, Labor Day in September, Columbus Day in October, Veterans Day and Thanksgiving in November, and Christmas in December. In addition, culture and heritage are honored almost every month with many celebrations and parades. Some of these annual events include the St. Patrick's Day Parade, Asian/Pacific American Heritage Festival, Norwegian-American Parade, Haitian Day Parade and HaitianSpringFest, Russian Heritage Festival, Puerto Rican Parade, Bastille Day Celebration, Great Irish Fair, Hispanic Heritage Day Parade, 4th of July Fireworks, West Indian Carnival Labor Day Parade, and the Christmas Parade.
