Holiday rentals Brooklyn - New York, but a little different
In the last few years, Brooklyn, the New York borough south of the river from Manhattan, has enjoyed a boom in popularity – why not opt for a Brooklyn holiday rental for your next holiday, so you can discover all the gems that the borough has to offer.
The most popular neighbourhood in Brooklyn is Williamsburg, a hipster hub where you'll find Brooklyn Flea Market, Brooklyn Brewery, as well as numerous trendy shops, coffee roasters, bars and restaurants – including plenty of great brunch spots. With a holiday rental Brookyln in Williamsburg, you won't get bored.
Other neighbourhoods worth looking around include Park Slope - home to Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, as well as boutiques and restaurants on Brooklyn's 5th Avenue - and Brooklyn Heights, where you'll find Brooklyn Bridge Park and Brooklyn Heights promenade, which offers fantastic views of the Manhattan skyline.
When you rent a Brookyln holiday apartment, you don't just need to stick to the hip bits. Take the subway to Brighton Beach, in the south, nicknamed Little Odessa due to the high number of residents from Ukraine and other former Soviet states, as well as Russians. Here you can eat, drink, shop and party like an Eastern European – some shops have little to no English signage, but its all part of the experience!
Just like in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, or Berlin, it's a great idea to rent a bike during your stay. The subway system is fairly extensive, but you can see so much more on two wheels. Some of the most popular “attractions” in Brooklyn are looking at Brownstone houses, and people watching.
