Old Brooklyn

Old Brooklyn earned its name honestly as the earliest settlers of the neighborhood date back to fur traders from the 1790s, but nothing about Old Brooklyn today shows signs of aging. Cleveland is a short five miles away, but you feel transported by a number of neighborhood attractions. From the deeply authentic Sausage Shoppe, founded in 1938, to Dee’s Diner, where serving up forgotten dishes is their specialty, Old Brooklyn is a cultural collage of “mom and pops” handed down for generations. The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is the neighborhood’s pride and joy, but so too are the Brookside Reservation, Benjamin Franklin garden, and Jeremiah Gates home.
