Now while most people think of Brownstones, they think that they must certainly be brown, but you couldn't be further from the truth. Brownstones come in array of colors and that's what make them all unique. While some are personal homes, some have been turned into apartments. There are some beautiful buildings in and around Brooklyn as well, and here's one thing to note if you're traveling from out of town, you better know how to parallel park!
It's not all houses but there's water too. Lots of water. A few of the homes that you see above were renovated after Hurricane Sandy in 2012 because they were destroyed.
And when you're tired of walking along the beach of Coney Island, you can pay the Luna Park (formerly Coney Island Amusement Park) a visit. I remember taking my kids to the Coney Island Amusement Park every summer where we would ride the Cyclone, one of America's oldest wooden roller coaster. The Cyclone has been opened since 1927, way older than most of our parents.
If you just want to have a lazy day, then a trip to Canarsie Pier might be just what you want. There you can relax on the benches or even enjoy some fishing.
Brooklyn has so much to offer, you just have to get out there!
