IMO the main differences between The Bronx and Brooklyn is the Bronx is more working class while Brooklyn is more trendy/hipsterish and is more "yuppie-friendly". Crime wise, the Bronx has a higher crime rate I believe and is also poorer. Demographically, Brooklyn is a lot more diverse, while the BX is mostly Hispanic with a handful of Blacks and Whites sprinkled in. Density is also higher in Brooklyn and the Bronx has more parks and green space.

In order to gauge 'density' on the streets, blocks and neighborhoods where people actually live and contend with the effects of high density, large areas of parks, cemetaries, and other green spaces, must be fully discounted.

For example, Brooklyn has many 'green' neighborhoods like Riverdale and the couple of other Bronx neighborhoods similar to it. Also, there is a far higher percentage of single family homes.

Yet, with no exception does it have an entire neighborhood of tenaments and apartment buildings, save the areas given over to 'urban renewal' efforts.

Brooklyn, simply has more neighborhoods and areas full of 'light and air' and 'grass, trees, and lawns'.

Also, I hate to put it this (but how else?), outside of the 'urban renewal' areas, Brooklyn just doesn't have any place where you feel the 'press' of tens of thousands of the poor and economically marginal in combination with the, dirt, grime, concrete, drugs, and crime.

Indeed, there are Brooklyn neighborhoods with all that, but the density of people is far lower. The neighborhoods are contained with definite borders and boundaries. In The Bronx, it just goes on and on, for tens and tens, and tens of blocks. The sameness of dirt, grime, concrete and 'people' virtually never ending, or so it appears.

Brooklyn is even different than Queens, specifically 'western Queens'. They are no neighborhoods with the scale and ratio of apts to homes like, Rego Park, Sunnyside, Astoria, or even Forest Hills, which lack the dirt and grime, as well as drugs and crime, but does have the concrete and the 'press' of people upon people.

On that note, some knotheaded Transplants appear to think this defines NYC, but it doesn't! Native middle class NYC is something different.

Definitely true, Eastchester in Westchester County is full of white kids who think they're gangsters just because they grew up in Morris Park or Pelham Bay when they were young.
