Brooklyn is one of the five boroughs of New York City and is also one of the counties of New York State. Founded by the Dutch in 1636, Brooklyn's original name was Breuckelen, after a city in Holland. Incorporated in 1834, it remained an independent city until 1898. It's located at the West End of Long Island, across the East River from the southern end of Manhattan. It connects to Manhattan by several bridges, of which the most famous is the Brooklyn Bridge. There is also an underwater connection to Manhattan through the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel, which goes deep under New York Harbor and is 9117 feet long. The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge links Brooklyn with Staten Island. Points of interest in Brooklyn include the Aquarium for Wildlife Conservation on the Coney Island Boardwalk, which exhibits marine life in indoor tanks and outdoor pools. The Brooklyn Botanical Garden is 52 acres with exhibits such as The Garden of Fragrance and the Japanese Garden. Other Brooklyn attractions are the Brooklyn Children's Museum, Brooklyn History Museum and Fort Greene Park.

Brooklyn Weather & Climate

Manhattan and the surrounding area have four seasons of changeable weather. Summers are often hot and muggy and last until September. Temperatures usually soar to near 100 degrees F. for a week to ten days in mid-July to mid-August. Another uncomfortable time to visit New York City is during January and February when temps are often in the 20s and the concrete canyons of the city can turn into wind tunnels. Otherwise, the rest of the year the weather is comfortable, with March usually being the rainiest month. May offers great weather - just warm enough for walking around but cool enough to remain comfortable. Autumn has more sunshine than spring, although both are clear and bright. New York City is magical at Christmas time and the changing leaves of fall makes it a beautiful time to visit the area.
