Room In Brooklyn is one of several paintings produced by Edward Hopper which feature individuals looking out of their windows, normally with a landscape seen through the same window that they are looking out from.

This type of scene reflected the mood that Hopper displayed in his models, typically thoughtful and relaxed, enjoying whichever landscape the painter had decided to include.

Besides Room In Brooklyn, other paintings featuring this same set up of a model peeking out from their window, of from just outside of their homes include Western Motel, Carolina Morning, New York Office and Sunday.

Hopper's best known painting, Nighthawks, repeats this approach but with several individuals sat separately around a quite bar scene.

That again holds a background outside with no others around to ensure the focal point of the painting is obvious.
