About Brooklawn, New Jersey
Located in a cove in Camden County, NJ, along the Delaware River across from the Philadelphia Naval Yards, the small borough of Brooklawn had its beginnings as part of the now-defunct Centre Township, a collective of homes built by the government to house shipyard workers. Brooklawn separated from Centre Township in 1924 by local referendum. Today, this semi-rural community is home to about 2000 people, surrounded on three sides by water and offering easy commutes to Philadelphia.
