There are multiple local, family owned businesses ranging from pizza shops to antique stores. Anything that I could want or need is within a reasonable driving area.
Review Brookdale
bloomfield is a great place to grow up, just wish there was a better sense of community in some areas. After many years they are finally rebuilding the downtown area which will hopefully bring some new businesses and restaurants to create a sprawling city-like feel.
Everyone has also loved my twin and I. We know everyone on the block since we were babies. I personally love the city so no I wouldn't live here unless I had to.
