Brooklyn Quick Guide
Brooklyn is the most populous of the five boroughs of New York City, and some might argue, the most culturally renowned. Brooklyn is home to venerable cultural sites that include the Brooklyn Museum - one of the largest in the United States - and the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), an arts education and performance venue and a famous Brooklyn institution since 1861.
If you're new to Brooklyn, or have visitors in town and want to give them a taste of the borough's diverse offerings, pick up a two-day Brooklyn Pass to gain entry into some of the area's most popular attractions, including the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, The New York Aquarium and the Prospect Park Zoo.
The Brooklyn Borough Hall is located at 209 Joralemon Street. The Community Service Center operates from that location and provides Brooklyn residents with access to assistance with many city services. The CSC can also be contacted by phone by calling (718) 802-3777.
