Top Public Schools in Brooklyn
Wonderful place to raise children! The schools are highly rated on education and sports. Don't blink or you'll miss the town!
Brooklyn is a great small town to live in. It has a very unique atmosphere. You can go from shops to cornfields in almost seconds flat, but it still has what you need for everyday life and then some. Brooklyn is home to several popular lakes and river systems, so there is no shortage of things to do. If you're looking for something different, drive an hour in any direction and you'll end up in either Lansing, Ann Arbor, Toledo, or Kalamazoo.
It's a small community with that hometown feel to it. The area is beautiful set in the middle of several lakes, with a diverse choice of activities for families to do. I think its been the best choice I made for my children, it gave them more opportunities and a controlled environment for them to grow up in. This area will pretty much stay the same, at least that's what I hope for it.
