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.

To make things clear, I am not a run-down white, I am not a rich russian, I do not brag about living in the ghetto, and I do not think I live on the greatest place on Earth. Neither do my friends. AND I AM NOT A GUIDO.

Brooklyn is home to many kinds of races and cultures. I am proud to live in Brooklyn, but I do not go around talking about how amazing it is.

Fucking labelers. Spend a week or two in Brooklyn before you start writing shit about it on urbandictionary.com.
Brooklyn kids are fucked up.

^^^ FALSE.

The second largest borough of NYC (first being Queens). Most people define it as the home of rappers, drug dealers, gangsters, idiots, etc. and as one of the dirtiest shitholes in all of America. However, thats only a section of Brooklyn, mostly the Sheepshead Bay and Flatbush area. If one took a look at Prospect Park or Ocean Pkwy, for example, it would be quite evident that its kept very clean. Prospect Park has a beautiful Botanical Garden and a great scenic park; the streets are very clean and look somewhat classy. The people in this area don't even consist partly of gangsters.

The people who leave negative comments about Brooklyn clearly need to get up their fuckin' asses and really take a tour around it before they earn the right to have ANY opinions about it. Yes, Brooklyn can be a trashy place, but come on people, its not THAT bad. I've lived here since I was born and hey guess what I survived.
Brooklyn was formerly known as "Kings County" in the early 1600s.

Brooklyn is one of the finest boroughs. To all the people who are hating on BK and you reside there or you live in New York your hating on your own community so to that’s just plain foolish. The neighborhood should also respect other races and ethnicities, which is what makes New York so first-class! If you are not from NY and you are from the U.S. then you are still hating on your people because we all live in the same country. And the crime is minimal so just shut-up. We should elevate other places in the same nation not put them down!
Brooklyn a great borough that is in NYC which is in NY which is in the U.S.,and should have other support from people from different areas confiming that it is such a great place, just because its in the U.S.!
