Brooklyn is a town in the local government area of Hornsby NSW with the population of 722 as of the 2016 census. Brooklyn is surrounded by the Muogamarra nature reserve and occupies a strip of waterfront along the southern bank of the Hawkesbury River. The town is best accessed by rail or from the Newcastle Expressway. The turn is on the north side of the river and uses the old iron bridge to return across the river.

Brooklyn provides convenient access for north shore residents and day trippers to the beautiful Hawkesbury River and Pittwater waterways for boating, swimming and fishing, and to Kur-ring-gai Chase and Muogamarra national parks for bushwalking and scenic views. The town has extensive boat mooring facilities which include a number of boat charter businesses.

The Hawkesbury River train station provides train services to the city, north shore areas, and the central coast. Long Island runs parallel with the suburb on the opposite side of Sandbrook Inlet and is joined to Brooklyn by the railway causeway. The island provides a very sheltered marine area. Dangar Island is sited to the northeast.

In the early years of settlement in the area, Brooklyn was a major river port and continues to offer safe berthing facilities. Ferries and freight barges are among callers as are the many owners of larger boats from Pittwater and Sydney Harbour. Brooklyn wharf is base to The Riverboat Postman that runs a mail, passenger and tourist service to Dangar Island and river towns upstream.
