Brooklyn Map

Brooklyn has a lot of attractive place where before the immigrants settled in 1600s was a marshed area. Before it was merged into New York City in 1898, Brooklyn was the 3rd biggest city in the United States which had about 2.3 million of popularity. Recent Dodgers (Los Angels Dogers) had moved from here to L.A. in 1958. Today, Brooklyn is a borough of many neighborhoods, each with its own strong ethnic flavor. It's very rare to find a New Yorker whose family has been living in America for more than one generation who didn't have an ancestor that lived in Brooklyn at some point in their life.
