Brooklyn is one of the largest cities in America - it’s definitely a large city on its own, at least by US standards.

Sure, but it's set up like a traditional city, with a downtown near the water, and less dense neighborhoods the further you get from that city center.

Oh absolutely. Manhattan is definitely unique in the respect that it has downtown-style density from top to bottom.

Brooklyn isn’t a city. It’s a borough of New York City.

If NYC was broken into five different cities for the five different boroughs, Brooklyn would be the second largest city in the US by population after LA.
