Explore Brooklyn — developed by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce — is Brooklyn’s dedicated tourism website, a complete source for Brooklyn dining, events, shopping, attractions, and more. Under the leadership of Chamber president Carlo Scissura, Explore Brooklyn was created to foster economic growth by spreading the word to tourists and businesses alike that Brooklyn is the place to be.
Explore Brooklyn is designed to help both residents and visitors find the best of Brooklyn all in one place, while giving local businesses and attractions an easy-to-use tool to promote themselves in a seamless social environment. The site is optimized for desktop, tablet, and mobile devices, and includes Brooklyn-centered editorial content written by some of the best bloggers in Brooklyn, a robust events calendar, and visually striking neighborhood pages.
The central feature of the site, however, is a searchable directory of every business, restaurant, park, and point of interest in Brooklyn. This directory is populated with content that is dynamically gathered from Facebook, Google, Twitter, Foursquare, and many other sources around the web to create ready-made profiles that can then be customized by the business owner. Businesses and attractions on Explore Brooklyn can curate and showcase user reviews, maps, menus, photos, social network feeds, store hours, and more.
