While part of the city of New York, Brooklyn has a population of around 2.5 million people and is generally seen as a city within a city, with a unique culture and lifestyle unlike anywhere else in the states. Bordering the borough of Queens to the east, and surrounded by water to the west has seen the city retain its individuality, which residents and businesses display with pride, making Brooklyn the famous place it is today. Auto Europe offers several car hire pick up locations in Brooklyn, New York, and a large fleet selection, so finding a car rental in Brooklyn is both easy and economical.
One way to get an insight into how the city has become so culturally diverse is to visit the several areas with distinct foreign cultures they have retained. Popular areas to explore are the city's famous Chinatown, which is on 8th Avenue, and Brighton Beach, which has been nicknamed Little Odessa, where many residents hail from the former USSR, and it is quite common to hear Russian being spoken in the street. Driving around in your hire car and visiting various parts of Brooklyn you will see and hear cultures from around the world, and this is one of the factors making the city stand out from the rest.
Along with the many cultures that moved to Brooklyn over the years also came their family values, and many of the city's historic attractions have been entertaining families for years. Drive your hire car over the bridge to Coney Island, and visit one of the most famous amusement parks in America. Here you can ride a roller coaster which was built in 1927, and enjoy spectacular views of Brooklyn and Manhattan from the top of the ferris wheel. Also popular with families is Prospect Park, where you can picnic, bike ride and fly kites in summer, and ice skate in winter.
For those with an interest in history and the arts, be sure to check out the Brooklyn Museum. With over 1 million artefacts and items of interest, the museum has more than enough attractions for visitors wishing to spend a day there. To see the glory of the city at night time, park your car near the riverfront park, and enjoy the spectacular views of Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges as well as the lit up panorama of highrises that is Manhattan.
