Brooklyn's Gateway Mall: Brooklyn's Best Kept Secret off the Belt Parkway

Suburban Shopping in Brooklyn


Brooklyn is known for its mom and pop stores, but it's got a handful of shopping malls as well. One of the newest is the suburban-feeling Gateway Center, occupied by brand name mass marketers and chain restaurants. It's not a unique experience, but it can be convenient.

Where is Brooklyn's Gateway Shopping Mall?

It's located off exit 15 on the Belt Parkway, near Spring Creek Park. Taking the side streets from downtown Brooklyn, take Atlantic Avenue to Pennsylvania Ave, go left left onto Flatlands Ave., take the 3rd right onto Schenck Avenue and you're there.
