    We construct intersecting brane configurations in anit-de Sitter (AdS) space which localize gravity to the intersection region, generalizing the trapping of gravity to any number n of infinite extra dimensions. Since the 4D Planck scale MPl is determined by the fundamental Planck scale M* and the AdS radius L via the familiar relation MPl 2∼M* 2+n Ln, we get two kinds of theories with TeV scale quantum gravity and submillimeter deviations from Newton’s law. With M*∼TeV and L∼sub millimeter, we recover the phenomenology of theories with large extra dimensions. Alternatively, if M*∼L-1
