Brooklyn may well be the most talked about, trend-setting destination in the world right now, and Fodor's chic new guide, illustrated by a Brooklyn artist and written by Brooklynites, showcases the best of the borough, from quintessential landmarks and authentic mom-and-pop shops to groundbreaking and trendy venues of all kinds. Best of all, this is a guidebook for visitors and locals--because we know how exciting it is to discover a new neighborhood in your own backyard. -COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE: This is the only guide to Brooklyn on the market from a major travel publisher. -BRAND-NEW TITLE AND LOOK: With the ongoing media and public attention that Brooklyn continues to receive, the borough deserves special notice. Fodor's chic stand-alone guide has an exciting and appealing new format and design, emphasizing Brooklyn's personality. -EXTENSIVE COVERAGE: This new guide goes far beyond the Brooklyn coverage in Fodor's New York City. It includes 30 top neighborhoods and covers Brooklyn landmarks as well as exciting new restaurants, hotels, nightlife spots, attractions, and events. -SPECIAL FEATURES: Fodor's Brooklyn highlights the borough's top attractions, experiences, and festivals and events, and the best ways to see the borough in summer, in winter, and with kids. A special section is devoted to our Best Bet recommendations for everything from the best places to eat pizza to top art galleries, alfresco dining and drinking, shops, bars, and performance venues. Notable neighborhood residents are also highlighted in boxed text. Illustrated color maps designed by a local Brooklyn illustrator showcase the content. -INDISPENSABLE TRIP-PLANNING TOOLS: An opening chapter about Brooklyn helps travelers decide what neighborhood to visit with Best Bets lists and features on where to go, what to do with kids, and top things to do in summer and winter.
