Brooklyn (formerly Swainsville) is a village in Jackson County of the U.S. state of Michigan. As of the 2000 census, the village population was 1,176. It is located just off U.S. Highway 12 (formerly U.S. Highway 112) in Columbia Township. Brooklyn is located in a portion of central lower Michigan known for its lush, rolling green landscapes called the Irish Hills.
