The CDP is bordered as well by Interstate 695 (the Baltimore Beltway) to the south, by Maryland Route 648 (Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard) to the west, and by the Patapsco River, which forms the Anne Arundel County/Baltimore County boundary, to the northwest.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 4.3 square miles (11.1 km2), of which 4.2 square miles (10.9 km2) is land and 0.077 square miles (0.2 km2), or 1.65%, is water, consisting largely of the Patapsco River and associated wetlands.
Within the Baltimore city limits, adjacent to the CDP, are the older neighborhoods of Brooklyn (founded 1853), Curtis Bay (development proposed in 1874, buildings began in 1889), and several smaller communities that are now defunct: Fairfield, Masonville, Wagner's Point (also known as East Brooklyn), Arundel Cove, and Hawkins Point.
The Brooklyn Park CDP in Anne Arundel County is composed of several smaller neighborhoods: old Brooklyn Park (west of Gov. Ritchie Highway - Maryland Route 2), Brooklyn Heights (east of Gov. Ritchie Highway), Arundel Village (along and north of Church Street), Roland Terrace (along and south of Church Street), Arundel Gardens (southwest of Gov. Ritchie Highway and south of Hammonds Lane), and Pumphrey, which lies along Belle Grove Road, south of the Patapsco River.
A History of Brooklyn-Curtis Bay, of approximately 200 pages, was published in September 1976, in celebration of the American Bicentennial by the members of the Brooklyn-Curtis Bay Historical Committee.
