The Brooklawn/St. Vincent neighborhood is located adjacent to the Town of Fairfield and lies between the North End and the West End/West Side. The neighborhood derives a portion of its name, and much of its character, from the presence of St. Vincent’s Medical Center.
Not only do the hospital and associated medical office uses (along with Central High School) contribute to Brooklawn/St. Vincent’s large concentration of institutional uses, but they have effects on neighborhood employment as well.
The overall character of the neighborhood is single-family residential, featuring many homes built before 1980; however, more than half of its housing is renter-occupied.
The area contains part of the Stratfield Historic District.
