Brown Deer is a wonderful and safe place to raise a family. The school system is a great institute and most students walk back and forth to school. There are many factory jobs, as well as independent ma & pa stores to work at. It is a small area, but everyone is very friendly, and welcoming, and everyone watches out for each other. Brown Deer is a suburb of Milwaukee so it is a short trip to downtown where there are many clubs, and pubs to party at.
Review Brown Deer
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.
