Did you just move to Brooklyn? Are you moving to Brooklyn? Did you move your business to Brooklyn? Congratulations – it’s the most populous borough in New York and increasingly the most vibrant. Here are ten reasons why Brooklyn isn’t playing second fiddle to anyone.
1. Brooklyn Museum
The second largest art museum in the city and one of the largest in the world, the Brooklyn Museum is a lot edgier than the Met – it has exhibits pop culture phenomena like Star Wars. It even exhibited counterfeits found in its own collection.

2. Prospect Park
The sequel to Central Park? Sculpted by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux ten years after they finished Central Park, Prospect Park is slightly smaller, but more picturesque, more rugged, and more pastoral, and a good enough reason for moving to Brooklyn on its own. And yes, it has a lake!

3. Coney Island
Coney Island, once the greatest amusement park in the country, isn’t what it was a hundred years ago – it’s better. Recently rebuilt and renovated, Coney Island has rides and cotton candy and Nathan’s hot dogs and everything your parents told you about – but without the crime and decay it once suffered.

4. Brighton Beach
One of the most unique neighborhoods in New York City, Brighton Beach is home to a huge Russian and Central Asian population. That means unique cuisines, drinks (like Russian beer soda), and architecture. It feels like nowhere else in New York.

5. Restaurants
From the classic, traditional (and Michelin starred) Peter Luger to Vinegar Hill House, and hip locations like Do or Dine, and Smorgasburg, Brooklyn has no shortage of great places to eat. If you’re moving to Brooklyn, you’ll have the chance to go to all of them.

6. Williamsburg
Williamsburg isn’t for everybody, but the former hipster mecca is easily the trendiest neighborhood in New York. From artisanal soap stores and vegan fashion boutiques (seriously) to haute couture and $3 Pabst Blue Ribbon, Williamsburg is a weird place, but it’s famous for a reason.

7. The Brooklyn Bridge
The Brooklyn Bridge is almost as iconic as the Empire State Building, and for good reason. It’s one of the earliest U.S. suspension bridges, was once the longest in the world, and it’s simply beautiful. With a new park underneath it, the Bridge is as alive as ever.

8. Barclays Center
Brooklyn’s arena had a great first year, and year two keeps getting better. Besides for being the home of the Nets, Barclays has tons of great concerts – from Jay Z to Leonard Cohen – and it’s a lot more comfortable than Madison Square Garden.

9. Brooklyn Brownstones
If skyscrapers define Manhattan, then brownstones define Brooklyn. The oak-lined streets and prewar row-houses are the visual life of the borough. And you don’t just have to look – you can get one of your own!

10. Pizza
Manhattan pizza? Fuhgeddabout it! New York pizza really means Brooklyn pizza. But I won’t tell you where to go. That ruins the fun of moving to Brooklyn. Hit the streets and find your own favorite!

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.
