Brook Reviews

I love that it is a small town and that you know everyone in it. Everyone is for the most part very friendly and helpful. If you need anything your neighbors are more than likely going to help. The town is for the most part very clean and well taken care of. I have lived here my whole life and I feel very comfortable being at home alone. I do not have to worry about things that people have to worry about in the city.

Great small town atmosphere with a great town park and community center. Everyone is willing to help each other out and say hi to you on the street.
