Brooklyn is one of the five boroughs of New York City and also the most populous county in the state. With an estimated population of 2, 648, 403 residents, it is the second-most populous county in the United States.
It was named after the Dutch village of Breukelen and shares a land border with the borough of Queens. The iconic Brooklyn Bridge connects it to the borough of Manhattan across the East River. Other water borders include Jamaica Bay and the Narrows.
Until 1898, Brooklyn was an independent incorporated city, but after the Municipal Charter of Greater New York, Brooklyn was clubbed with other counties and towns to form the New York City. Brooklyn lives by the official motto of ‘Unity makes strength’ and keeps the city functional in style.
Brooklyn experiences a humid subtropical climate with an influence from the Atlantic ocean and receives shielding from the Applachian mountains. The city attracts plenty of precipitation throughout the year and averages 57% of possible sunshine in a single year. So, the weather is pretty balanced with the best of a bit of everything.
