Brooklyn is the most populous of the five boroughs of New York City with about 2.5 million inhabitants- accourding to Wikipedia, though others say it's the second-largest. o__O;; It doesn't matter, anyway. It's a bad place, but compared to what some of the comments say it is... not really...

Apart from all those pretty little tourist sights there's the Black, Chinese, Italian, Hispanic, "Russian", and, though no one else here on the site seems to have mentioned it (but I think it's the nastiest), the Jewish Ghettos. Oh, then there's the rich white parts scattered around mostly downtown (NORTH on Brooklyn, on the map. -.-' If you see Coney Island, that's a bad thing...) that developers claim to be the "extended part of Manhatten"- the rent prices are, anyway.
Oh, and *oh god* the ghetto part of Bensonhurst isn't Russian- mostly Slavic Jews who speak the language. :D M'kay, and as anouther side note, I have yet to see ONE mafia member, of any race. Unless the Jews have suddenly marked being racist bastards as an initiation rite for being in their own mafia... then all of Borough Park's in it.

And not the whole borough (not.... boro... ;-;') is full of illiterate bastards. High Schools like Tech, are -very- prestigious. I'm not getting into collages and universities, since most seem to think that it's all 16-yr old assholes wearing pants to their knees spitting out rap songs about how people get shot on the corner. Not that they don't... but hell. You have a higher chance of getting shot in Chicago, LA, Detroit, DC, Boston, Houston, Saint Louis, Atlanta, Philly, New Orleans, and the small hometown of your choice then here.

Nevermind that the food is fucking orgasmic. :D I need not mention (hopefully) all the geniuses Brooklyn has brought out in sports, the arts- dance, film, and music as well as visual arts, and academic fields.
Oh, and before you start dissing on Brooklyn from what you've heard on TV or something, actually /go there/. Kthxbye~

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!

he REALIST MOTHERFUCKIN place in the world. Fuck them other ghettos yall hear about. Nothing is close to the REAL SHIT that goes on in BROOKLYN. Home to some of the worst neighborhoods in the country (Flatbush, Crown Heights, Brownsville, E. New York) Birth place of some the greatest rappers of all time Jay-z, Notorious BIG. Well know for having the highest crime rate in New York City and ranks amongst the highest in crime within the nation. The best and REALIST Borough.
"Lemme tell you where I grew up at
Sip mo', threw up at, flip coke, blew up that
Where fake thugs got they vests chewed up at
BROOKLYYYYNNNN! Beef, who want that?"
