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
Not a lot to do. High crime rate. The public schools try their best with the low budget they receive. Decent barbecue gives it the extra star.
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.
