    Berkley is such a lovely town. I'm so glad to live here! Berkley isn't a very popular, but it has a few little things like a gas station, library, restaraunt, and of course, Dighton Rock State Park. I live on a Green Street, which used to be an all dirt road. It was a truly recently paved. There are lots of farms in Berkley and lots of animals, especially horses. Berkley is a rural area, which means there is lots of wildlife to see. A lot of the times I will wake to wild turkeys gobbling or a woodpecker pecking. You will also see deer grazing in the fields and raccoons at night. You will find that the people of Berkley are very welcoming and kind people. They are easy to accept you and caring. Many people have children and pets. Since Berkley is so small, practically everyone knows everyone, especially if you have kids. If you ever decide to move to a rural area, I recommend Berkley. I love where I live and if you ever visit I'm sure you will love it too.
    I love how eclectic the general population is here in, Berkley. We have everyone, from the poor farmer, to the wealthy CEO. Berkey, has a small town feel, yet you're only 10 minutes away from the city in either direction. On any given morning during the week you can see small huddles of girls walking to school. Groups of boys always riding their bikes to meet at the park before they start their day. Homes sell very fast in this part of town. In comparison to other towns they don't sit on the market very long.
    I am very fortunate to live in such a wonderful town.
    It is a small town and the houses are not too close together, there are many farms.
