Brooklyn is considered one of the boroughs located within New York City, and was consolidated into NYC in 1898. Brooklyn is definitely one of the city's most populous boroughs with around 2.5 million people residing there.1 If Brooklyn had not been consolidated into New York City, it would be considered the fourth largest city in America. Even though it is a part of NYC, the area has its own culture, arts scene and architectural heritage, with the neighborhoods having established themselves as ethnic enclaves. The Dutch were the first to arrive in here in 1634, living alongside the Native Americans that already lived there. During the 1630s, the Dutch settlers purchased land from the Mohawks, which now includes the areas of Red Hook, Gowanus, the Brooklyn Naval Yard, and Bushwick. Brooklyn was named by the Dutch after the town Bruekelen in the Netherlands, becoming the first municipality in what is now known as New York City in 1646.

Current Initiatives

The primary purpose of the Jericho Project's Veterans Initiative is to create affordable housing options so veterans of the U.S. armed forces do not end up living on the street. Jericho offers supportive housing for veterans at two locations, both of which offer veteran-specific services to meet the unique mental health needs of individuals who have been deployed. Employment services are offered as well, to ensure a smooth transition to civilian work. To learn more about this initiative, call 646-624-2341.5
