The Town of Brooklyn was one of the municipalities of the Original Kings County, formed by the British in 1682. In 1834, the town of Brooklyn was incorporated as the City of Brooklyn. By 1898, when Brooklyn was consolidated as part of the City of Greater New York, the City of Brooklyn and the County of Kings were coterminous.
