The number of New York’s inhabitants grew at high rates over past century. And, not only to Manhattan, as many of you would think, especially in the last decade, the number of immigrants to Brooklyn is booming. That is why are we going to bust the assumption that when saying New York people mean Manhattan, as inhabitants of Manhattan would say. Brooklin has been becoming more and more interesting to more and more various sorts of people and for most various interests. It is becoming the new and improved centre of the world for many areas of life. When doing the research for this article, we interviewed different kinds of people interested in Brooklyn- from those who have lived there since they were born, throughout those who relocated and found their happiness here, to those only considering to move here. Therefore, we made a list of reasons to move to Brooklyn, from different aspects. In case you didn’t think about Brooklyn or considered it one of the options for your further life, when you read this article, you will most likely change your mind, and probably fall in love with it.
Prime reasons to move to Brooklyn:
- Gentrification- You may see improvement of the opportunities for everyday life everywhere you move in Brooklyn
- Nature- Plenty of nature in such a big city, for those Brooklyn movers who love enjoying in parks
- Art- Brooklyn maybe is not the centre of the world for this matter, but, maybe it will become soon, being what it offers for art lovers
- Seaside proximity- Beaches that close that, wherever in Brooklyn you move to, you would be 1-2 subway stations away from relaxing beaches of Brooklyn
- Neighbourhoods- The communities here are tight and knit, so unusual for that big city. So, moving to Brooklyn wouldn’t make that much influence on your relationship with neghbours, they are very warm here too.
- Transportation- Brooklyn is a place where you actually can own a car, being that it has areas that look like suburb, and yet you do not need to have a car because everything is so well connected by metro
- Training and education- There are so many opportunities in Brooklyn to get trained and educated for the job you love
Relocate to Brooklyn if you want to improve your life standard
For those of you who do not know the meaning of the expression gentrification, it means ‘making something suitable for higher classes of people’ derived from the word gentry- that stands for the highest class of people, and the suffix -fication- which means making something. Although there are opinions, based also on the name that was given to it, this kind of happening makes Brooklyn available only for people of higher life standard, pushing away those living in it before it started, my opinion, and opinion of my friends living here, is that it is making the opportunity for all inhabitants to move upper the class ladder and live a better life. So, put all together, this makes Brooklyn a place to move to and invest in the future.
If you love parks, you will celebrate the day you decided to move to Brooklyn

One of the top reasons for many people living in other districts of New York, but also for newbies, to move to Brooklyn is the proximity of Brooklyn neighbourhoods to the Atlantic Ocean.

The beauty of those beaches is commonly used in many films. One of them which you might find the most familiar is Brighton Beach.
The connection among the neighbours is more than friendly in Brooklyn
Choose Brooklyn as your destination of next relocation, and do not be surprised if your neighbours ask you to take care of their house until they are away, the only a couple of weeks since you came there!
