Brooklyn Park Reviews
Review Brooklyn Park
I love the fact that the City of Brooklyn Park is very diverse. Local stores and business are easily accessible for all age groups and all ethnic groups. Commute to other cities are only within minutes, which is great! Roseville Shopping Center/Mall and the Arbor Lakes Shopping Center are both only 15 minutes to the east and west of Brooklyn Park.
The only suburb of Minneapolis that ever has plowed streets in the winter, because the cops need to be able to speed to catch a convict. Residents will receive notice of a plethora of child molesters living within spitting distance. If you're a teenager, it's easy to get away with anything. The cops have real problems to deal with and don't care that you're living life. The further you get from the city the wealthier - and white - the people get. Asain, Hispanic, and African people are suddenly extinct around the racist Champlin line. Being ten minutes from the city will spoil you.
Brooklyn Park has been my home for over 23 years and over those 23 years I have come to see the beauty all around it. It has a college very near by, many friendly local business' and some of the kindest/caring people I have ever had the pleasure to know. There currently isn't much I would like to change but one thing I would, would be the difference in housing once you cross 85th. It seems like once you go further into Brooklyn Park there seems to be more crime. A lot of drug trafficking happens in that area and the same thing is many elementary school and middle schools are in the area. It's not as bad as it use to be so for that I am glad and very hopeful for the future of Brooklyn Park.
