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.
Kick off your visit on the 2nd (Mon): get to know the resident critters at Bronx Zoo, then steep yourself in history at Square House Museum, and then wander the streets of Dumbo. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: admire the natural beauty at Brooklyn Botanic Garden, then get engrossed in the history at Brooklyn Historical Society DUMBO, then take in the waterfront at Coney Island, and finally take in the views from Verrazano Narrows Bridge.
