BROOKLYN. Locals cherish this corner dive for its casual atmosphere, impressive beer selection and top-flight juke box, alone worth the train ride to Boerum Hill. Dark and pubby, the place has been the preferred haunt of many British expats since it first poured a pint. In fact, the long-running rumor is the inn itself is an immigrant, disassembled, shipped and reassembled in the decade following the Civil War. Legends and rumors aside, the fact remains that, like the pubs in London, the Brooklyn Inn is the type of place that helps distinguish its neighborhood, serving as a sort of friendly, after-hours visitor center.
