The Burroughs Where Strength Comes from Unity


Brooklyn, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/31/2013 -- ‘Eendraght Maeckt Maght’. Not many people may know it but these are the words written on the official seal and flag of Brooklyn. The said phrase, which is actually the official motto of Belgium and is written in Dutch, roughly translates to, “Unity makes strength”.

Brooklyn has come a long way from being a small Dutch settlement on the East River shore of the Long island River; more than 350 years in fact. Because of its rich history, it comes as no surprise that a great number of tourists regularly flock to what is considered to be the second largest area in the whole of New York. However, there is more to Brooklyn than just history and the past.

If you are in it for the culture and the history, some of the places that you might want to consider checking out include the Coney Island, which has been around since the early part of the 1900’s; the Floyd Bennett Field, which is considered to be the first municipal airport in New York; and the New York Transit Museum, which contains a number of important artifacts that relate to the subway as well as commuter rail and bus system of New York.

For those who would like to enjoy Mother Nature, Brooklyn offers such tourist destinations as Prospect Park and the Jamaica Bay Wildlife. You might also want to take a quick detour and visit the Green-Wood Cemetery where you can find some of the most notable men and women that have graced New York.

In order to enjoy everything that Brooklyn has to offer, you have to make sure that you book yourself in one of the premier Brooklyn NYC motels. One such that you should consider is the Galaxy Motel. Located right in the heart of Brooklyn, this Brooklyn NYC motel offers such features and amenities as complimentary internet access, free local phone calls, free movies and cable in the plasma TV installed in each of the rooms, and free parking among others.
