Prospect Park is where you’ll find the Brooklyn Museum, the Botanical Gardens, pretty brownstone houses and much more.
Greenwood and New Utrecht feature the big attraction of the historic Green-Wood cemetery, one of the largest in New York and the resting place of many notable people. Other attractions in this district include New York’s third Chinatown and an Italian area in the west of Brooklyn.
Bedford-Stuyvesant and Flatbush are home to the city’s largest African-American neighborhood, including many West Indian immigrants as well as an important Orthodox Jewish community. This is where you’ll find a lot of classic Brooklyn history as well as beautiful Victorian homes.
Coney Island and Brighton Beach is home to the well-known Coney Island amusement parks however due to conflicts between the locals and city government many of them have been closed.
