I've lived in Brookfield my entire life. I've seen it change a lot over the years, yet somehow it remains the same. I'd love to see some chain restaurants to help bring money into this village. It has potential, it just needs time and work!
I love that we are less than a mile to the Metra, restaurants, bars, yoga, grocery store, library, pharmacy, bank, we have it all within walking distance. Easy commute to downtown via Metra, I-55 or 290 too.
