After reading all of the disgustingly inaccurate definitions above, I thought that it was about time for someone who knows what they are talking about to write. Now, I may not live there, but Broooklyn, while it is home to some not so great neighborhoods, also is home to three of the top ten richest people in the world, a multitude of respectable, rich, Academy Award winning actors, many famous artists, and Saint Ann's, which is considered the best and most exclusive High School in the country. Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, and Park Slope, are full of rich, multi-racial (but the majority is white) celebrities and businessmen, with children who are models and only wear clothing that is over $150. There are also many specialty boutiques, in which only haute couture is sold. To say that Brooklyn houses the worst and most violent neighborhoods in NYC, is purely inaccurate. What about the Bronx, Harlem, Lower East Side, areas around Delancy Street, and Little Somalia, which in the heart of Manhatten is considered the most dangerous neighborhood in New York. The inaccuracys of the above definitions is appaling. Please, if you have any NYC pride, just throw your diamonds up.

Despite what a lot of the other definitions say, Brooklyn is not merely a county of posers. Also home to the beautiful Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, the previous home of the Brooklyn Dodgers, and housing one of the 'Big Three' in New York City specialized Highschools, the specialized Brooklyn Technical Highschool. Originally a seperate city, remainants of it's former name and occupation linger in names of streets and areas like 'Kings Highway' and 'Kings Plaza'. One of the boroughs to use the area code 718. Culturally diverse, it has neighborhoods where the predominating background is easily evident in the signage, the population, and the overall atmosphere.
A. There is more to Brooklyn then poser gangasters and 'garbage bag pants'.

B. Brooklyn Tech Highschool stands up there with Stuyvesant and Bronx Science!

C. Let's go hang out at Kings Highway after school!

D. It's like a Russian Chinatown in this area... every sign is in Russian!

One of the most amazing girls you will ever meet in your life time. She is super sweet and caring and will do anything for the people she cares about. Boys cant help but to fall in love with her sense of humor and her drop dead looks. Brooklyns are also talented and smart and good at all the things they do.
Guy 1: Holy look at that chick over there!
Guy 2: Dude that HAS to be a Brooklyn!
