Brooklyn is a family friendly small town located in the middle of many near by larger cities. Brooklyn, MI is a lake town to the fullest extent. It is also the city that houses NASCAR and the wildly popular summer music festival "Faster Horses" Annually.
Small, tight-knit community. Pretty diversified, with many ethnic groups. The town is slightly lacking with extra activities, but that is to be expected with smaller places.
