    Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Heights and Brooklyn Bridge Park

    As everyone in Brooklyn knows, “Brooklyn” has become far more than just a borough — it’s beer, coffee, jeans, bikes, markets, culture and so much more. As we’ve been hearing for several years now, Brooklyn is a brand.

    Which is why Brownstoner is listing every Brooklyn-branded thing on earth (plus a few other iconic bits of Brooklyn culture). We’ve got the list going below. But we need your help to make it truly comprehensive.

    What obscure or classic Brooklyn brands do we need to add? Leave a comment, email tips@brownstoner.com, or tweet to @brownstoner with your suggestions and we’ll add them here.
