    Brookhaven Reviews

    I'm here temporarily, staying with family. Brookhaven is a quiet little town with a throw back to the 30's and 40's. Downtown renovations of old buildings have resulted in some charming executive style apartments and rentals with a feel of the old south. Brookhaven is a friendly place but if you are looking for a technologically advanced area with all of the trappings of a larger, modern city, Brookhaven is not your niche. This is the place for a Gone With The Wind weekend!
    I love Brookhaven! It is calm, beautiful, and overflowing with charm! It is probably the best place to live in the state, great place with even better people!
    I have lived in Brookhaven all of my life; and I love the small town feel of it. Everywhere you go people are always friendly towards you. I love that so many people in this town are willing to help others who are in need. I would say that Brookhaven is full of very compassionate people. I also like how clean the town is; the landscapes are always beautiful at every business. Brookhaven is a town where you feel at home no matter if you are a resident or a visitor. I plan to stay here for a very long time and hope that it continues to stay the great town that it is.
