The 38 Essential Brooklyn Places, Spaces, and Destinations

View as Map

One might say that Brooklyn's having a moment, but that's really rather absurd to say about a borough that boasts 2.5 million residents and Marty Markowitz. One thing's clear, however: the cultural life of Brooklyn—as reflected in urban design, restaurants, shopping, and outdoor activity—has never been richer. As such, our editors from Curbed NY, Eater NY, and Racked NY put their heads together to form this, our guide to the 38 most vital places, spaces, and destinations in Brooklyn. The list is sponsored by our friends at Absolut, which are currently honoring the Borough of Kings with a limited edition Absolut Brooklyn. Maybe we missed your favorite spot—perhaps from an under-represented neighborhood—so do let us know via the tipline what else deserves credit. The Brooklyn 38 is a work in progress, as is the borough itself.
