Brooklyn is the most populous of New York City's five boroughs and the second largest in area. Brooklyn was an independent city until January 1, 1898 when, according to the Charter of "Greater New York", Brooklyn was consolidated with the other boroughs to form the modern "City of New York". It continues to maintain a distinct culture. Many Brooklyn neighborhoods are ethnic enclaves where particular ethnic groups and cultures predominate.

Brooklyn has long been a magnet for immigrants, and many ethnic groups dominate a particular neighborhood for a time, although the situation keeps changing as populations move in and out. Thus, many of Brooklyn's neighborhoods are becoming increasingly mixed, with an influx of immigrants. Brooklyn contains dozens of distinct neighborhoods, representing many of the major ethnic groups found within the New York City area.
