Welcome to Brooklyn: How Sweet It Is

The Lonely Planet has named Brooklyn one of the top ten destinations in their 2007 “Blue List,” which highlights the best in worldwide travel:

“Drawing on the knowledge, passion and miles travelled by the Lonely Planet community of authors, staff and travellers, and covering every country in the world, this year’s edition is a selection of the best places to go and things to do all around the world right now.”

The NY Daily News says that the book cites “its multiethnic character and multiplying number of trendy neighborhoods, the book lauded the borough as “the hippest part of New York City.”

I think the draw is the multicultural neighborhoods and hip independent restaurants, bars, boutique shops, that are being slowly replaced by the “mallification” of Manhattan. There are great places to visit in this world, but it’s not surprising to see Brooklyn as a destination. As the street signs says, Brooklyn is “like no other place in the world”.
