Brooklyn is in a great location as it is in close proximity to some of Portland's most hip and popular neighborhoods such as Sellwood, Hawthorne and Clinton. Residents have plenty of coffee, pub and dining options just a stones throw away in most cases across several adjoining neighborhoods. 

Brooklyn is definitely a favorite and in-demand Portland neighborhood and feels very community friendly, safe and family focused.  Dog walkers, runners, babes in strollers and people of all sorts busy the streets.  Brooklyn, like most of its close-by sister neighborhoods, is fiercely independent and has a high number of locally owned businesses who thrive due to overwhelming local support.
