I have been living in Brooklyn Center for the better part of a year, and I love the city. The people are great, the view is spectacular, and other than the construction that seems to never end, it is a wonderful place to live. Everything that you want or need is close by, you don't have to drive far to get a good burger!
Review Brooklyn Center
Brooklyn center is a peaceful place good to live. Everyone in my a neighborhood is nice. It is my second year living in Minnesota especially, in Brooklyn center. This environment makes me feel secure.
Brooklyn center is a pretty town. Covered with a polite and nice people.
Most of the time, if you found yourself in trouble, you can easily found someone who can help you. Four months ago, my car broke down in the middle of the parking store. I was very embarrassing and confusing and also shy to ask for help. After few minutes a group of three people came and help me to fix my car, without hesitation. I was so happy and lucky to be in a nice city.
To be honest I kind don't like it over here because a lot of things are going on like people getting shot. It's almost like the hood. That is why I'm trying to better myself by going back to school. So I can pick another living location!
