BROOKLYN - An expert is offering up a bit of history about how some Brooklyn neighborhoods were named.
Gregory Quinn put together a rundown of some trivia about several different neighborhoods.
For example, there is no hill in Boreum Hill. Residents just wanted a more posh name, so they named their neighborhood after a Dutch farming family.
Also, the Brooklyn Heights "fruit streets" were so-called after a local socialite noticed all of the streets were named after other prominent Brooklyn residents.
Coney Island was named because it used to be a destination for rabbit hunting.
