What Happens after Flood Damage in Brooklyn?
SERVPRO’s process helps Brooklyn homeowners
Brooklyn is one of the most famous areas of New York and is popular with tourists throughout the year. It is also a wonderful place to live, with a rich arts culture and lots for a family to do, plus it is close to the heart of New York City.
Brooklyn’s European settler history goes back hundreds of years. The Dutch first settled Long Island’s Western edge in the mid-seventeenth century. The area we now call Brooklyn was originally six independent cities, populated by the Dutch. These include:
- Graves End, the only colonial town founded by a woman and once a popular gathering place for non-conformists.
- Brooklyn Heights was a hotbed of Abolitionist sentiment and also features beautiful brownstone row houses.
- Flatbush is a culturally diverse area with a mix of modern and traditional brownstone buildings and a delicious diversity of ethnic restaurants.
- Bushwick is a working-class area with modern homes, grassroots community organizations, and several parks.
- Flatlands features several historic homes, cheek by jowl with plenty of modern shopping districts.
Enjoy an outdoor adventure in Brooklyn.
Brooklyn boasts several lovely outdoor spaces, despite being a busy urban area. There are plenty to choose from for a perfect relaxed day out with family and friends. Why not start with:
- Brooklyn Botanic Garden is ideal for plant-lovers, with 14,000 taxa on display. The garden has several beautiful themed areas, including Shakespearean, a Japanese hill-and-pond garden, a rose garden, a water garden, a fragrance garden, and a children’s garden.
- Jamaica Islands Wildlife Refuge is an area of wetlands and salt marshes dotted with islands. It is the perfect place to spot horseshoe crabs and terrapins and do some bird watching.
- Coney Island is ideal if you want some fresh air and entertainment in one place. You can enjoy the beach or take a ride on one of the many fairground attractions.
If the weather turns bad and you want to go inside, look no further than the New York Transit Museum. The museum dates back to 1976, when entry cost one subway token. The original plan was to keep it for a few months, but people loved it so much that it is still popular. You can see retired buses and subway cars, plus other artifacts from New York’s transit history. There are also exhibits about the history of fare-paying, the impact of labor laws on transit systems, and the impact of transit systems on the environment.
