Brooklyn is the largest borough in New York City by population, so it makes sense that the area would be filled with plenty of things to do. All tastes are accommodated here, with museums, shops, nightclubs and parks abound.
While hanging out at a cemetery might seem dark, Green-Wood is full of activities for guests, including ghostly storytellings and tours of famous graves, like those of artist Jean-Michel Basquiat and politician Boss Tweed. In a city where green space is scarce, Green-Wood Cemetery has become a quiet sanctuary.
From March to November, check out Brooklyn Flea for vintage finds and crafts from local artisans. Window-shop through stalls of furniture, collectables, jewelry and crafts. You can even pick up some tasty bites from the food vendors as you walk around.
Bushwick is home to some warehouse-size thrift stores, and L Train Vintage is one of the best. With multiple locations throughout the borough, L Train Vintage will have you looking like a true Brooklynite in no time.
