The largest borough in New York, with a population of 2.5million, Brooklyn has a great need for speedy and efficient parcel delivery and courier services. It is a very cosmopolitan area, with more than a third of the population being black, and nearly one in five of Hispanic origin.
There are sizeable African-American, Caribbean and Russian/Ukrainian contingents, while other nationalities also live in concentrated communities scattered across the district’s 71 square miles.
Its origins, however, are Dutch, after the first Europeans to settle in the area, who called it ‘Breuckelen’. The British took control in 1664, and the area became part of what was known as Kings County, one of America’s original counties.
The city acts as a major feeder for employment in New York City itself, with more than half of its residents working outside the borough boundary. However, its own business community has prospered through the establishment of companies which support the work of the main financial centre of Manhattan.
A major cultural centre, Brooklyn was heavily referenced in the novels of Henry Miller. Today it is widely known across both New York state and the American nation as the Borough of Homes and Churches.
With so many different nationalities living and working in the borough, its commercial and business links spread far and wide. So if you are looking to do business with companies in Brooklyn, or have family or friends to whom you need to send regular parcels, it will be handy to know a reliable parcel delivery company – which is where Parcel2Go can help.
