Brooklyn is a vibrant suburb located just south of the Central Business District in Wellington, New Zealand’s capital city. It is named after the New York borough, and has many streets named after American presidents, plus its own Central Park.

Brooklyn’s shopping area is mainly on Cleveland Street, and includes a cinema, library, cafes, two medical centres, two bars, and various shops. Brooklyn has primary schools, parks, and of course the community centre. It can be reached on the number 7 and 8 buses, or a quick drive or vigorous walk up Brooklyn Hill from the central city. South of Brooklyn, Ohiro Road descends through a bush-clad valley to Owhiro Bay.

Brooklyn has a number of attractions for families, young couples or flatmates, and elderly alike. With close access to parks, schools, shops and amenities, there is something for everybody in Brooklyn.
