Thanks to Brooklyn’s renaissance as New York’s center of cool, taking meetings in Manhattan seems almost passe. Brooklyn offers a thriving food scene (including nine restaurants with a total of 11 Michelin stars) and innovative hotels serving an increasing number of productions, including at least 37 TV series such as Billions and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
