A healthy mix of old and new, Brooklyn’s architecture is evocative of the borough’s history and where this area is

their presence on postcards of the past and in film or TV scenes we all have witnessed. We have all had that moment when
we are watching a movie and suddenly we see something we have seen before. Whether or not you live or have lived in
Brooklyn, chances are you will recognize places in some flicks instantly. Peruse Photowall's array of Brooklyn posters

samples this applies to. As you can see, not only will you provide a beautiful sight in your room with Brooklyn posters,
but also something that immediately connects with anyone who sets eyes upon your new decoration.
The borough's history
Brooklyn’s growth was always intertwined with New York City’s growth, logically. What was once a small town, Brooklyn’s
population suddenly doubled to nearly 80,000 between 1840 and 1845 due to the the first major wave of European
immigrants. As a matter of fact, in 1855, nearly half of Brooklyn’s 205,000 residents were foreign-born. Half were Irish
and the rest were divided evenly between families from Britain and Germany. Merely 5 years later, Brooklyn had become the
third largest city in the United States! You can still see the influence of these settlers in some Brooklyn posters, in
terms of architecture and aesthetic. Ferries used to transport more than 32 million passengers per year from Brooklyn
Heights to lower Manhattan, but eventually the demands for transportation could not be sustained and in 1865 The New York
Bridge Company was founded to construct the Brooklyn Bridge. This project was completed in 1883 and obviously still
stands today, as seen in many of our Brooklyn posters.

Celebrated in many songs and movies, the Brooklyn Bridge is one of New York City’s most iconic man-made wonders. Proudly
looming over the East River, this historic bridge offers a scenic journey between the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn.
There are some absolutely amazing Brooklyn posters featuring this structure. Brooklyn Bridge at Night is one of such, a
fine and vibrant motif that can enliven any place you put it in. The Brooklyn neighborhood known by the acronym which
stands for “Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass” is also one of New York City’s most famous landmarks. Located on
the the cusp of Brooklyn and Manhattan, Dumbo is a recognizably energetic area that can be seen in Brooklyn posters such
as Brooklyn Bridge View. This beautiful image can be described as being quintessentially New York, just like practically
all of these Brooklyn posters.
