Abstract We explore the possibility of generalizing the locally localized gravity model in five space-time dimensions to arbitrary higher dimensions. In a space-time with negative cosmological constant, there are essentially two kinds of higher-dimensional cousins which not only take an analytic form but also are free from the naked curvature singularity in a whole bulk space-time. One cousin is a trivial extension of five-dimensional model, while the other one is in essence in higher dimensions. One interesting observation is that in the latter model, only anti-de Sitter ($AdS_p$) brane is physically meaningful whereas de Sitter ($dS_p$) and Minkowski ($M_p$) branes are dismissed. Moreover, for $AdS_p$ brane in the latter model, we study the property of localization of various bulk fields on a single brane. In particular, it is shown that the presence of the brane cosmological constant enables bulk gauge field and massless fermions to confine to the brane only by a gravitational interaction. We find a novel relation between mass of brane gauge field and the brane cosmological constant.
