Brooklyn remains the largest and most populated of New York City’s boroughs, containing 2.5 million residents, according to Fodor’s Travel Guides. Brownstone buildings, parks, family-owned eateries and lively bars attract visitors to Brooklyn each year. Travelers easily access the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, New York Aquarium and Prospect Park in this pedestrian-friendly borough. Accommodations in Manhattan are notoriously expensive, so staying at an affordable hotel in Brooklyn is one way to conserve funds for museum tickets, nights on the town and cab fare.
