About Brooklyn

Brooklyn, a vibrant tapestry of culture, innovation, and history, pulses at the heart of New York City. This storied borough, the most populous with over 2.7 million residents as of the 2020 census, blends the old with the new—the Dutch origins of Breukelen intertwining with the dynamic rhythms of modern urban life.

Geographically diverse, Brooklyn stretches from the verdant expanses of Prospect Park to the iconic Coney Island boardwalk, showcasing a landscape as varied as its people. Culturally rich, Brooklyn is a global village within the city, home to many ethnicities, languages, and traditions.

This diversity is not just a statistic—it’s the lifeblood of the borough, shaping its neighborhoods, cuisine, and festivals. With one of the highest population densities in the country, Brooklyn’s streets buzz with the energy of communities from around the world, including the largest Jewish population outside of Israel and vibrant Caribbean, Asian, and Russian communities.

Brooklyn’s historical roots as a Dutch settlement have evolved into a hub of arts, technology, and entrepreneurship. Its transformation is mirrored in the adaptive reuse of industrial spaces and the flourishing of grassroots cultural movements. Transportation networks weave through the borough, connecting its residents to the wider city and beyond through an extensive subway system, bus routes, and bike lanes, reflecting the ongoing story of migration and movement.

As Brooklyn looks forward, it does so by embracing the richness of its past and the diversity of its present. Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi P.C. stands with Brooklyn’s communities, championing the cause of justice with the resilience and determination that define the borough. We are committed to safeguarding the rights and futures of all Brooklynites, embodying the spirit and strength of this beloved borough.
