“Hello Brooklyn, how you doing? Where you going? And can I come too?” – Jay Z
Before researching this list, I honestly had no idea how unique Brooklyn was. I now have a newfound appreciation for the New York borough and its fascinating range of diverse neighborhoods.
New York’s most populated borough, Brooklyn is home to 2.5 million residents living within its 180km². Once considered a less desirable part of New York City, Brooklyn is now a highly sought-after region to move to or visit. And with so much to see, do and experience here, why wouldn’t it be?
Brooklyn is seriously heaving with the best lifestyle offerings in The Big Apple. Its many neighborhoods are jam-packed with iconic restaurants, cafes, bars, clubs, live music venues, arenas, leafy parks and gardens, waterfront attractions and so much more.
Why pay exorbitant Manhattan prices when you can stay in one of Brooklyn’s many hip neighborhoods for a fraction of the price, while still being able to reach Manhattan in as little as 10 minutes?
My list of the best Airbnbs in Brooklyn has been thoroughly researched and compiled so you don’t need to look anywhere else. I’ve even included a Brooklyn neighborhood guide to make choosing the area for you oh so easy.

Airbnbs in Brooklyn Neighborhood Guide
Brooklyn is home to 66 neighborhoods, and with so many areas to choose from, selecting the best neighborhood to stay in Brooklyn can be tricky. I’ve put together this guide to the best neighborhoods in Brooklyn, making choosing a vacation rental from my list a tailored experience that ticks all the boxes!
“Bed-Stuy” to locals, Bedford Stuyvesant is located in the north-central part of Brooklyn, and borders many other hip Brooklyn neighborhoods. Bed-Stuy is home to the largest untouched collection of Victorian architecture in the entire United States, and is now a multi-cultural hotspot that holds important cultural significance in the hip-hop genre.
A more chilled out and down to earth neighbour of hipster hotspots Williamsburg, historic Park Slope is a leafy oasis in the heart of the city. It is filled with boutique stores, stunning architecture, cozy cafes and restaurants and is a safe, family-friendly locale in Brooklyn.
Trendy and youthful, Williamsburg is one of Brooklyn’s most well-known neighborhoods, and is brimming with hip eateries, bars, clubs, boutique stores and residential areas. The Williamsburg Waterfront is picturesque, and in the warmer months is a popular hangout where outdoor concerts and markets are regularly held. Out of all the amazing places to stay, I’d probably recommend finding an incredible Airbnb Williamsburg Brooklyn rental!
Central Brooklyn’s Crown Heights is a cozy neighborhood that borders Bedford Stuyvesant. It has a relaxed, cool vibe, and is in close proximity to The Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. The multicultural district is also home to a range of top ethnic restaurants.
The ritzy neighborhood of Clinton Hill is Brooklyn’s highest elevated district. It is full of beautiful brownstones and mansions and is one of the best areas in the New York borough, with lots of high end restaurants, bars and shops.
Bushwick is located in northern Brooklyn, is bordered by Williamsburg and Bedford Stuyvesant and is also a gateway to the borough of Queens. Bushwick has retained its working class roots, but is rapidly becoming a trendy food and arts destination.
Once an industrial area of Brooklyn, Gowanus has been transformed into one of Brooklyn’s most sought-after neighborhoods. The northwest Brooklyn hotspot is full of cool warehouse lofts, art galleries, live music venues and great bars.
Relaxed and distinctly “Old Brooklyn”, northwest Brooklyn’s Prospect Heights is home to the Barclays Center, chic cocktail bars, cool restaurants and a rich Caribbean influence. The small neighborhood is a melting pot of cultures, influences and architecture, and there’s something here to appeal to everyone.
Nestled in the southwest pocket of Brooklyn, Bay Ridge is one of the boroughs safest neighborhoods, and is a culturally diverse destination with great restaurants, cafes, shops and parks. The district is also home to historic rowhouses and the enormous Owl’s Head Park.
Brooklyn Heights is the most expensive Brooklyn neighborhood to buy property in, and one look at its stunning brownstones and charming restaurants and shops leaves no doubt why. It also offers a quieter lifestyle than other areas of the New York borough. The upmarket area is home to Brooklyn Bridge Park, a family-friendly destination.
