Brooklyn Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
A downtown neighborhood and one of the city’s oldest, Brooklyn was platted in 1865 by Miles Price, a Confederate veteran. You’ll see streets named after famous generals “Jackson” and “Stonewall” thanks to Price. Home prices in Brooklyn range from $50,000 to $200,000. Brooklyn is located in the 32202 and 32204 zip codes and is bordered on the west and south by Interstate 95, Water Street on the north and St. Johns River on the east.
City officials have embarked on a re-development program designed to elevate the quality of life and protect Brooklyn’s remaining structures. In 2004, Jacksonville approved the Brooklyn Neighborhood Strategy Plan, a detailed effort to create mixed-income residential, parking, and commercial development for South Brooklyn. In addition, Brooklyn is a designated Enterprise Zone as city officials attempt to increase economic development in the area.
Brooklyn residents have minutes-away access to Riverside Park at 753 Park Street, the second oldest park in the city dating back to the early 1890s. Amenities at the 14-acre park include 30 benches, 8 picnic tables and a basketball court. Easy access is also possible to two nearby facilities, the Prime F. Osborn III Convention Center at 1000 Water Street, which has 265,000 square feet of exhibit space and hosts shows such as the Southern Women’s Show and Jacksonville Home and Patio Show and the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens at 829 Riverside Avenue.
