How Many Places are Named Brooklyn in the US?
Answer: Although it's not a city unto itself (and hasn't been for over a century), Brooklyn is one of the best-known urban names in America. In terms of name recognition, Brooklyn's right up there with New York, Chicago, Las Vegas and San Francisco. When someone says they came from Brooklyn or were born in Brooklyn, that's a certain kind of pedigree.

Brooklyn, NY is not the only Brooklyn in the United States. Here are ten others:

  1. Brooklyn, CA (suburban Oakland)
  2. Brooklyn, Indiana
  3. Brooklyn, Iowa
  4. Brooklyn, Michigan
  5. Brooklyn, Mississippi
  6. Brooklyn, Minnesota
  7. Brooklyn, Ohio (suburban Cleveland)
  8. Brooklyn, Oregon
  9. Brooklyn, Pennsylvania
  10. Brooklyn, Wisconsin (90 miles west of Milwaukee)
