BROOKLYN - A new map is showcasing some highlights of the more than 70 neighborhoods that make up Brooklyn.

The map, created by BlankSlate, portrays Brooklyn as the focus of New York City, with Manhattan pushed to the side.

Laura Itzkowitz and her crew spent the last couple of months asking people what they think is important to them in the borough.

According to residents, Brooklyn is where people attain street smarts, attitude and charisma. They also say that Brooklyn has its own vibe and culture, and anything that highlights the borough is very exciting.

The prints are currently available as posters, but the goal is to also make everything from tote bags, umbrellas and iPhone cases.
