Kings County Information
Kings County, better known as Brooklyn, is one of the five boroughs of New York City. If you're coming into the area from busy Manhattan, you will see one of the iconic New York structures - the world famous Brooklyn Bridge. Once in Brooklyn, you will immediately notice that it can be best defined by its neighborhoods. Brooklyn has long been home to immigrants from all over the world, and with dozens of neighborhoods defined chiefly by ethnicity, the borough offers a diverse range of cultures, including African-American, Russian, Ukrainian, Hispanic, Italian, Jewish, Puerto Rican, and Irish, among many, many others. With this collection of cultures, one can only imagine the exciting array of restaurants and shops that the area has to offer. In fact, Brooklyn is well known for its diverse cuisine where you can find Korean fare, Mexican dishes, a pizzeria, and kosher meals all within a block of each other!
Cultural appeal aside, Brooklyn also offers more than just the big city atmosphere. Prospect Park offers a natural setting and reprieve from the bustle of the city, and included in this area is a zoo, a lake (the only lake in Brooklyn), and the Wildlife Conservation Society. The Brooklyn Botanic Gardens are adjacent to the park and give residents and visitors a taste of the natural world as well with a Japanese garden, a rose garden, and more. Finally, historic Coney Island is pure entertainment for all ages, featuring rides, games, and delicious food; this is a must-see for any tourist OR Brooklynite.
