At the mention of New York City, many people envision Manhattan. After all, it’s in this central borough that you’ll find many things that make the city great, from the blinding lights of Times Square to the imposing height of the Empire State Building. However, stays in Manhattan can be extremely expensive, and it’s unlikely that you’ll get any peace and quiet in the city that never sleeps.

If you’re not used to the noise of central New York City, head over to Brooklyn. Located across the Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn is a largely residential borough of the city. Not only does it have a beach, but it is also home to an amusement park, a zoo, numerous international restaurants, and its very own indie scene. It’s perfect for anyone seeking a safe and serene yet fun stay, especially if they’re not used to the hustle and bustle of a big city.

But Brooklyn is still in New York City, so it must be expensive, right? Not necessarily! Staying in New York City does not have to mean blowing your budget, and this list is here to prove it. Here are five inexpensive HomeAway and VRBO vacation rentals, all under 200 USD, in Brooklyn, New York City:

1. Quirk and color: apartment in Cobble Hill (from 115 USD)
