    Brownsville Reviews

    The people in the town of Brownsville are very friendly toward one another. The thing I would like to see change is when businesses open try really hard to keep the business going rather than closing down and moving away.
    Review Brownsville
    When it comes to living here it is based upon what makes you comfortable. I have lived in this city my whole life and I always say that it is boring due to no fun centers being here. However I would rather live here than anywhere else because this is where I was raised and what I am used to.
    I believe that the crime here is not bad at all. However people make poor decisions and have to pay the price but this city is not on the map as far as other cities who have murders and shootings everyday.
