    The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful with kids playing around the streets minding their own business. Nice neighbors walking their dogs and keep their problems to themselves. It is very quiet and very clean . You can walk to the village to get ice cream, exercise, have a hair etc. I would live here again so I can have peace from the working environment and will give it a 4 out of 5. I do not see a changes in this neighborhood because it will stay the same. This neighborhood is a good place to stay.
    The crime and safety in my area is very low on crime and great in safety. We don't usually have crime at all other than alittle vandalism on the park building which is a disgrace. Around my neighborhood and community we as neighbors and caring citizens really like to keep the peace and keep the neighborhood as clean as possible. We also all look out for each other in any type of need. It's a great community.
    I've grown up in Brown Deer, and honestly it's been pleasant. There are a lot of places close by to where I lived, as well as many parks which is a huge plus in my opinion. The schools were not as good as a few neighboring towns, but I hear they are improving.
