What we're about

At some level, we're all expats! #LOL

Brooklyn has become "the happening" place to be, the belly button of the world!
The Brooklyn Expats & Locals community is a placemark where we can gather together easily, "Cheers" style: where everyone knows your name. And if they don't, introduce yourself!

This group is intended to welcome new expats in town to mingle with old expats and locals or Brooklyners. Chat up with experienced expats and locals to get to know more about city lifestyle and how to be an expat in Brooklyn.

Anyone can join this group. We will try to explore coolest cafés, restaurants, bars and out-doors in Brooklyn, and - why not? - Manhattan too.

So if you are living in or close to Brooklyn or just arrive in the city to checking out for future home and you would like to go to an event where people/friends socialize, this may be a good group for you. Don't be shy if you are a new arrival in Brooklyn. Just come by and chill-out with coolest people in Brooklyn.
