Download one of many Transit apps online (Transit, Moovit, Citymapper, Embark, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps...etc). This will definitely help with finding your way around and knowing which subways to take. They are very accurate.

A Brooklyn tennis buff (I know where all the free courts are). I love Brooklyn very much, as this is the only place where you can meet all types of people in any given situation. Bedford Stuyvesant (moved in 2013), is a very diverse place there are East Indians, West Indians, Mid Westerners, Southerners, and Europeans living on any given block.
I've put together a guidebook of all the new places to eat in the area, and some local favorites.
My favorite pastime (when there is downtime), is to take a bike and ride around the neighborhood, visiting friends. The architecture is gorgeous, and people are friendly.
