Host 7 6 Arch in Prospect Park Brooklyn is… “the place to be.” New York City and Brooklyn New York City is called “the capital of the world.” Throughout the year, it is the business, family vacation, and getaway destination of over 50 million visitors from around the world. They come for finance, media, sports, theater and other entertainment, shopping, restaurants, and so much more. Brooklyn is one of five boroughs in New York City, and it is “the place to be.” One out of five Americans can trace their roots to Brooklyn. If Brooklyn were its own city, it would be the fourth largest city in the United States, and a very international city as well. Of the over 2.5 million residents of Brooklyn, as of 2010, just under 50% spoke a language other than English as their primary language. Significant numbers of Brooklynites speak Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Yiddish, French Creole, Italian, Hebrew, Polish, French, Arabic, various Indic languages, Urdu, and various African languages as a main language. Its international makeup adds to the synergistic impact of INPUT 2018 happening in this borough. The arts, film, and the television industry are blossoming in Brooklyn. INPUT 2018 delegates from around the world will find it exciting.
