NYC from the air


Links to various places in the borough of Brooklyn

I haven't spent much time in Brooklyn so I do not have much personal information to share.

However, I have found some links to places that others have recommended and I will share them here.

These recommendations are from third parties. I do not have any personal information about these places. Take the recommendations but make allowance for the fact that tastes vary and you may find a different experience than what you read here.

This information was accurate when it was published, but can change without notice. Please be sure to confirm all rates and details directly with the companies in question before planning your trip.
