Brookhattan (Brooklyn + Manhattan)

Brookhattan (Brooklyn + Manhattan) was the name of an American soccer club in the American Soccer League from 1933 to 1958.

The Brooklyn Paper, on December 13, 2013, used the headline “Council OKs Brookhattan.” The newspaper was referring to the Manhattanization of Brooklyn, with high-end shops and expensive high-rise apartments. Tweets on October 22, 2013—“brookhattan!! It’s ON and it started here, in this very tweet. Big smiles.”—also used this meaning of “Brookhattan.”


Wikipedia: Brookhattan
New York Brookhattan was an American soccer club based in New York, New York that was a member of the professional American Soccer League. The club joined the ASL for its final season.

After the disintegration of the original ASL following the 1933 spring season, Brookhattan and the New York Americans of the old league helped form a new, but lower professional level, ASL in 1933/34.
