Brooklyn Center Real Estate Listings – Minnesota Northstar MLS Member
Located just north of Minneapolis and bordered by the Mississippi River, Brooklyn Center is a small, close-in suburb. One of the oldest inner-ring suburbs of the Twin Cities, it began as farmland, but grew rapidly into a postwar boomtown suburb. Since it borders on Minneapolis, many residents commute into that city for jobs, but fast access to the I-94 & I-694 loop makes commuting to other parts of the Metro Area simple. In recent years, the city has become one of the most ethnically diverse suburbs in the Twin Cities.
