Brooklyn

Brooklyn – A world of a City

New York City has five boroughs, of which Brooklyn is one.  The East River borders it, separating it from Manhattan. It’s mainly surrounded by water, because the Upper and Lower New York Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, and Jamaica Bay surround it. There are three bridges that connect Brooklyn to Manhattan and one is called the Brooklyn Bridge. This famous bridge has been influenced by the Hegelian philosophy applied to the engineering of the bridge. [1]. Brooklyn also has an underwater vehicular tunnel [2], rapid transit tubes, and parkways to whisk you away to other places. Another bridge, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge connects Brooklyn with Staten Island, another borough. Brooklyn is both an industrial area and a residential area, so you can imagine it handles vast traffic loads. It makes sense to figure that it is the most populous of the boroughs.
