Brooklyn (named after the Dutch town Breukelen) is one of the five boroughs of New York City, located at the western end of Long Island. An independent city until its consolidation with New York in 1898, Brooklyn is New York City's most populous borough, with 2.5 million residents, and second largest in area. If the borough were a separate city, it would be the fourth-largest city in the United States. Since 1896, Brooklyn has had the same boundaries as Kings County, which is now the most populous county in New York State, and the second most densely populated county in the United States, after New York County (Manhattan).Though a part of New York City, Brooklyn maintains a distinct culture, independent art scene, and unique architectural heritage. Many Brooklyn neighborhoods are ethnic enclaves where particular ethnic groups and cultures predominate.New York's Five Boroughs at a GlanceJurisdictionPopulationLand AreaBorough ofCounty ofestimate for1 July 2007squaremilessquarekmManhattanNew York1,620,8672359the BronxBronx1,373,65942109BrooklynKings2,528,05071183QueensQueens2,270,338109283Staten IslandRichmond481,61358151City of New York8,274,527303786State of New York19,297,72947,214122,284Source United States Census Bureau [1]
