Manhattan! No, Brooklyn!

Posted on August 31, 2011

As the age-old argument rages, Gotham provides great Manhattan and Brooklyn renter’s insurance

Let’s get this out of the way. Gotham Brokerage Co., Inc., is located in … Manhattan. We’re just a couple of blocks from the Brooklyn Bridge, though, if that helps mitigate things.

Truly, it doesn’t matter to us. We’re all New Yorkers. We do not discriminate when it comes to finding great insurance packages for our customers.

But some people get a little carried away with the whole borough-vs.-borough thing, especially when it’s Manhattan-vs.-Brooklyn. Maybe it’s the residue of Giants-vs.-Dodgers. Or maybe it’s just another excuse for New Yorkers to argue. Either way, as this Time Out New York piece shows, there’s plenty of pros and cons for both:

Regardless of which borough you pick (and it’s interesting how many of the loudest Manhattan advocates are former Brooklynites, and vice versa) you need to secure your belongings with renter’s insurance. Gotham is the first place you should look.

The best renter’s insurance, in Manhattan or Brooklyn, is the kind tailored to your needs and your neighborhood. At Gotham, we can draw on multiple insurers to make sure you have the coverage you need. That’s true whether you are renting or taking the next step with the purchase of a condo or co-op.

If you move to a neighborhood in either borough that you’re unfamiliar with, Gotham can help guide you. We’re a New York City institution, family-owned and rooted in the city, providing insurance for New Yorkers for more than 50 years.
