Though it may be less popular or touristy than its big brother Manhattan, Brooklyn boasts of one of the largest and hippest art districts in the United States.
Start off your visit on the 26th (Tue): get engrossed in the history at Louis Armstrong House Museum, take in the views from Brooklyn Bridge, then take a stroll through Dumbo, and finally appreciate the extensive heritage of Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Keep things going the next day: see the interesting displays at Silverball Pinball Museum, kick back and relax at Ocean Grove Beach, and then get a taste of the local shopping with Brooklyn Museum.

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You've added Bargemusic, The Phantom of the Opera, The Lion King, and other attractions to your itinerary. Visiting Hamilton Grange National Memorial and Long Beach will get you outdoors. Let the collections at 9/11 Memorial and American Museum of Natural History capture your imagination. There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, go for a walk through Central Park, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and explore the world behind art at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).
