Manhattan, with its vibrant Greenwich Village, Chelsea and Clinton neighborhoods, has long been a destination for LGBT travelers. In recent years, Brooklyn has become more attractive, thanks to the scores of hipsters and young professionals who migrated across the East River in response to the soaring housing market. The next time you make the trip to New York City, save time to explore this diverse and interesting borough:

 

FLEA MARKET FINDS

Manhattan skyscrapers tower over the Brooklyn Flea Market each Saturday, called “one of the great urban experiences in New York” by the New York Times. On Sundays, the action moves to DUMBO. Foodies should check out the diverse array of food vendors at “Smorgasburg” in Williamsburg at East River State Park. For more info, go to BrooklynFlea.com.
