    The police are very visible in this area, however it seems they are not adequately trained and maintained. They seem fairly ineffective, overzealous on smaller issues while bypassing larger issues in the community.
    Review Brookland
    The local businesses in this area definitely add a home-style touch to their designs to create a sense of familiarity. This creates a very fun atmosphere for visitors which is great for the town.
    I never feel unsafe in my neighborhood.
