Ultra chill and hip vibes. Growing up here, a lot has changed, but at the same time there are some places that still exist and thrive. Although I do wish some things never changed... The mix of old and new and in-betweens makes Brooklyn a fun place to explore. There is an endless number of niche boutiques and trendy restaurants to try out, so you can never be bored with Brooklyn.
