Represent for Brooklyn, New York City, and Area Code 718! Settled in 1634 and encompassing the entire area of Kings County, Brooklyn was an independent city until it became one of the five boroughs of New York City in 1898. It is home to over 2.5 million wonderful residents, countless numbers of whom have contributed greatly to all walks of American life over the borough's history. We designed this to have a vintage, distressed look. It's available here in your choice of several colors, printed with eco-friendly inks.
