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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Jersey Shore Premium Outlets and Raaka Chocolate. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Dumbo and Castello di Borghese / Hargrave Vineyard. Change things up with these side-trips from Brooklyn: First Presbyterian Church of Stamford, Connecticut (in Stamford), Shore Line Trolley Museum (in East Haven) and Garden City (Cradle of Aviation Museum, Roosevelt Field, & more). There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Brooklyn Heights Promenade, take a stroll through Carroll Gardens, explore the world behind art at Brooklyn Museum, and learn about winemaking at McCall Wines.

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Kick off your visit on the 5th (Sun): admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, wander the streets of Times Square, and then browse the eclectic array of goods at Chelsea Market. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 6th (Mon): examine the collection at New York Public Library, take a stroll through Greenwich Village, and then wander the streets of Washington Square Park.

To find photos, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the New York City journey builder .

New York City is just a short distance from Brooklyn. In January in New York City, expect temperatures between 5°C during the day and -5°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 7th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive back home.
