Why Brooklyn?

With so many avante garde movements and cultural icons emerging from Brooklyn these days, some say the quirky New York borough is surpassing Manhattan as America's trend-setting locale. That's why we chose The New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge to set the stage once again for all Visual Studio Live! New York 2012 sessions and activities. Venture out in Brooklyn for a change, or revisit your favorites in the Big Apple—you'll get the best of both worlds in the comfort of a full-service luxury hotel, and not to mention, a stunning view of the Manhattan skyline.

World-Class Comfort – The New York Marriott Located in Renaissance Plaza, the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge is one block away from nine major subway lines. Take the subway to Manhattan in just 5 minutes, or wander through Brooklyn's best-kept secrets—the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, the sculpture garden at Brooklyn's famous Pratt Institute, and the ultra-hip DUMBO and Williamsburg neighborhoods.
