The main reason I gave Brooklyn New York an overall rating of four out of five is because of the diversity. You can find people from all over the place all in one city which is something I find to be amazing especially in a race driven world today! Everyone that lives in the community knows the struggle everyone else goes through because we all come from the same place. It causes us to view life and the things around us in a similar way which is going to play a huge part in the destruction of racism, discrimination and any other prejudices.

What I like best about Brooklyn is more of a community feel than Manhattan has. Even though people are separate here, there is still a greater sense of cordiality and not the dismissal you get from Manhattanites.

What I want to see change is an extension of evening entertainment at someplace other than the Barclays Center. Most of the stores close at 8 p.m. That's too early! Given a choice between NYC and Brooklyn, I'd take Brooklyn any day!
The best comparison anyone has ever made of Brooklyn is that of an ocean. If you have just moved here you have a lot of exploring to do. The train can help with that. You can go anywhere at any time. There is always something to do. Nothing ever stops here. Life just keeps moving fast; it's a rush. Some people can begin their day at night and others in the morning. There are varieties of everything you can possibly think of. The rent can be high but living here even for a year could maybe change your life. You can complain about your problems over a slice of pizza. Anyways, you know you love living here. The nightlife is so alive! And when you get tired of Brooklyn (can't imagine why) you have four other boroughs to explore. That is after you've been to all the different neighborhoods.
