    Travel Guide

    It doesn’t take a passport to visit Brooklyn, as some Manhattanites might lead you to believe. Still, Brooklyn can feel a world away. And that’s precisely what locals loveabout it.

But what outsiders might be surprised to learn is that Brooklyn is less an undifferentiated mass than a collection of neighborhoods, each with its own distinctive character and history. From Bay Ridge, Bed-Stuy and Bergen Beach to Weeksville, Williamsburg and Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn is a patchwork quilt of communities stitched together with mismatched threads from nearly everywhere in
    the world. Celebrating its in-your-face diversity, but continuallychurning those differences into something fresh and unique, Brooklyn embodies a hip and cool version of the American experiment. E pluribus unum– from many comes one. Here are 111 places to start your explorations.
