Foundation at a Glance
With more than 2.5 million residents, Brooklyn would be the fourth largest city in the United States.
There’s a Reason So Many Call Brooklyn Home
Brimming with passion, creativity, and energy, Brooklyn boasts top colleges, world class arts, beautiful open spaces, and a vibrant business and retail sector. Its architecture, history, cultural, and ethnic richness, and tradition of welcoming newcomers with new ideas and big dreams, makes Brooklyn a place to live, grow, and stay.
Rich in Culture, Brooklyn Has Another Side
Unfortunately, Brooklyn also has unacceptably high rates of poverty and unemployment, under-resourced public housing communities, high drop-out rates for young adults, poor maternal health statistics, vulnerable seniors, a growing number of home foreclosures, and an increasing number of people seeking emergency food relief.
