    Browns Mills Reviews

    This isn't a horrible place to live. If you're a starter family, I'm doubtful you will find anywhere else more affordable to own a home than here. There are a lot of run down and foreclosed properties on the market around here. neighbors are hit or miss- some are friendly and quiet, others are loud and possibly taking part in illegal activities. The preschool here is the bast in the state and my 4-year old loves it. There are not a lot of businesses in there area, which means if you will most likely need to drive to neighboring towns for work, shopping, etc. The neighborhood is however quite convenient for anyone working on the military base.
    Review Browns Mills
    There isn't any more than average violent crime in Browns Mills. I think every town has their druggies that will do anything for money and homeless that are rude and obnoxious. Those are the issues that stand out the most in this town. Lock up what you own, don't leave it laying in the yard and take precautions.
    All towns have their good and bad points and Browns Mills is no different. We have our good areas and bad areas. I'm not scared to walk down my street alone at night nor do I lock my car most days. It's about 20 minutes in any direction to the next decent size town so there's not really much employment opportunity close if you're not military or civic service.
