111 Places in Brooklyn

That You Must Not Miss

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 love about it. It’s independent. Fiercely headstrong about maintaining its individuality. Tolerant of the different, the foreign, the weird. 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.

 

E pluribus unum– from many comes one. Here are 111 places to start your explorations.

John Major

John Major writes about art and culture, especially events and places in Brooklyn, his home for the last twelve years. He is also writing a memoir about life as a stay-at-home father of three managing a divorce and international relocation, uniquely told through pilgrimages to paintings by the Italian artist, Caravaggio. Originally from southern Ohio, John is a dedicated explorer of cities. Among his favorites are London (which he called home for a dozen years), Barcelona, Rome, and Paris. He is determined to never lose the sense of wonder from being a curious explorer, both at home and abroad.

Ed Lefkowicz

Ed Lefkowicz is a commercial, corporate, and editorial photographer and the photo editor of Edible Queens magazine. A native New Englander who eventually moved to Brooklyn, he enjoys exploring New York City life in all its storied quirkiness, from its diverse people to the range of ideas, innovations, arts, and foods produced by this rich society. His corporate clients range from startups to the Fortune 100, and his non-profit clients include healthcare, social services, education, and the arts. Never without a camera, he chronicles the cognitive dissonances that color life in the boroughs with his alt website TheQuirkySide.com. He fancies himself a saveur and may have been the first to introduce the American term “foodie” to the French. He and his wife Cynthia live in Midwood.
