Downtown Brooklyn was originally the borough’s business district and civic center. As such, it has many pedestrian plazas that are often crowded with office workers during coffee breaks. The Fulton Mall remains one of the last vestiges of former gentrification in downtown Brooklyn, where residents can shop for discounted clothing and electronics.

Living in Brooklyn is never far from a bank or pharmacy, and Brooklyn’s cultural hubs—from BAM to Barclays Center—are within easy reach. Every neighborhood has great restaurants, grocery stores, movie theaters, gyms and subways .

Brooklyn built many green spaces early on , and on weekends and after work, family picnics, joggers, and local residents flock to the Green Market at Brooklyn Borough Hall.
