Hands down the nicest place on Earth. Statistically speaking, one of the most culturally diverse places in the world. You will find African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans, and many other races. Many narrow-minded people like to think that Brooklyn is made up mostly of ghettos, but that is completely false. Look at Mill Basin, Bensonhurst, Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope. They're several of the richest areas in the five boroughs. That's what makes BK so unique, because there are ghettos, suburb places, and fine luxurious areas. There are neighborhoods that are so diverse it's placing this borough as a prime example of a microcosm of the world.
Countless number of famous people from actors to ballplayers to rappers to politicians and to scholars are from Brooklyn. (Michael Jordan, Mike Tyson, Eddie Murphy, Charlie Murphy, Joe Torre, Willie Randolph, Vince Lombardi, Larry King, Spike Lee, Carmelo Anthony, Tupac Shakur, Biggie Smalls, Jay-Z, Papoose....the list goes on and on).
There is also a deep history with Brooklyn. Simply the culture of Brooklyn is so diverse and crossing-over that there is almost too much to cover. The Brooklyn style (or culture) is composed of every culture, leaving it as a unique style itself. That's why you'll hear many people say, "There's only one Brooklyn" or "Brooklyn is the place to be!". From it's pizza to the music to the streets to the bars and to the clothing fashion, there is truly no other place like Brooklyn.
"I grew up in Brooklyn. 'Nuff said."
“He's pretty easygoing, a real Brooklyn guy.”

"You may see on the map that there exists several places in the US named 'Brooklyn'. I only know one Brooklyn"
