It is charming and neighborly to receive a letter with an address such as those above.

In contrast, letters mailed to anywhere in the borough of Brooklyn do not have that charm despite the fact that it is full of charming neighborhoods. There are 66 of them.

They are: Bath Beach, Bay Ridge, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Bensonhurst, Bergen Beach, Boerum Hill, Borough Park, Brighton Beach, Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn Navy Yard, Brownsville, Bushwick, Canarsie, Carroll Gardens, Clinton Hill, Cobble Hill, Columbia Street Waterfront District, Coney Island, Crown Heights, Cypress Hills, Ditmas Park, Downtown Brooklyn, DUMBO* & Fulton Ferry, Dyker Heights, East New York, East Williamsburg, Farragut, Flatbush, Flatlands, Fort Greene, Fort Hamilton, Gerritsen Beach, Gowanus, Gravesend, Greenpoint, Greenwood Heights, Homecrest, Highland Park, Kensington, Madison, Manhattan Beach, Mapleton, Marine Park, Midwood, Mill Basin, New Lots, New Utrecht, Northeast Flatbush, Ocean Hill, Ocean Parkway, Old Mill Basin, Park Slope & South Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Prospect Park South, Red Hook, Seagate, Sheepshead Bay, Starrett City, Stuyvesant Heights, Sunset Park, Vinegar Hill, Weeksville, White Sands, Williamsburg, Windsor Terrace.

* For those who are not familiar with it, DUMBO is an acronym for the area in Brooklyn “Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass.”

Despite this, all mail is addressed as Brooklyn, NY 112xx

The same is true for the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island. However, Manhattan addresses are New York, NY.
