Brooklyn see + do

Brooklyn is the fourth-largest city in America—or it would be if it weren't attached to New York City. This is relevant because, as with any major city, it's way too big to see in one trip.

The parts you hear about, those with the restaurants and shops and museums and parks, are a much more manageable proposition.
