But the 2,565,600 residents1 who call the borough home do not need to leave the area to experience arts or entertainment. The Brooklyn Academy of Music, Prospect Park, and Coney Island are just some of the attractions that draw thousands of visitors to the area every year. Many more come to take in a Nets basketball game or attend one of several universities in the borough, among which are Long Island University, the Brooklyn Law School, and the Polytechnic Institute of NYU.
