Bulk, 2D hybrid lead bromide perovskites comprise a robust family of halide perovskites with a rich structural and photophysical chemistry witnessed thus far. In an attempt to boost focus on systematically charting the phase space of 2D lead bromide perovskites, it is timely and critical to review the structure-property relationships that are emerging in this family of materials. In this review, we assess the multitude of (100)-orientated lead bromide perovskites, as well as the idiosyncratic (110)-orientated members. We examine the underpopulated phase space of bulk, thick-layer (n>1) lead bromide perovskites, highlighting several examples of structures violating Goldschmidt's tolerance factor with large organic spacers in the cuboctahedral perovskite cages. The narrow and broadband emission is discussed, along with the developed optoelectronic profile of bulk, lead bromide perovskites, as yet. Lastly, we summarize the integration of 2D lead bromide perovskites in optoelectronic devices.
