A borough that captivates its inhabitants with the ever-so prominent New York City skyline; a borough of humble beginnings to industry elites such as Adelaide Hall, C.C. DeVille, Fabulous, Jay-Z, Lena Horne, Lil Kim, Talib Kweli, and The Notorious BIG – just to name a few. This is a borough that prompts residents to say, “It’s a Brooklyn thing!” Brooklyn represents culture to its core surrounded by museums and 17th – 19th-century brownstones with townhouse facades to the gritty streets of rap battles and block parties. It’s a borough for everyone but also adheres to the current times that render a quirky, young and fashionable crowd.
