Brooklyn is at southeast of Manhattan across the East River.

the famous Brooklyn Bridge connects this neighborhood with Manhattan. The subdistricts are numerous, but here are the most famous:

  • Dumbo is between Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge
  • Williamsburg (an art and nightlife hotspot)
  • Coney Island (right on the beach and known for these amusement parks)
  • Brooklyn Heights and Park Slope are residential and green neighborhoods

Neighborhoods in New York - Queens

Residential and industrial area, it is the district where the city's two main airports are located. JFK et La Guardia.

Geographically, Queens is east of Manhattan, north of Brooklyn and south of the Bronx, and this in itself makes up many neighborhoods or boroughs:

Long Island City, Jackson Heights, Flushing Northeast, Forest Park, Jamaica, The Rockaways ...

Unfortunately, the vast majority of tourists do not go to Queens. They go there to get the airports but don't go there to visit them.

However, a real visit to Queens is definitely worth it, as each district of this district has its own typical shops, traditional cuisine and its own festivals and events ... in short, its own identity!
