Brooklyn, incorporated as a town in 1646, was the first town in New York State. In 1683, Kings County incorporated Brooklyn with 5 other towns, occupying the area we currently know as Brooklyn. In 1898, Brooklyn joined with Richmond, Queens, New York and Bronx counties to form Greater New York. With a current population of over 2 million, Brooklyn is the most populous borough in New York City, and would be the fourth largest city in America all by itself.
