I moved from Springfield Massachusetts to Brunswick five years ago. Brunswick is a small town and the residents are very respectful. Neighbors help eachother and act as a family towards eachother. Families stay for generations and everyone knows each other in the small town. Some residents in certain neighborhoods are not respectful and create problems for families living there for years. The schools are small, but teachers in Brunswick school district do not take the extra time to help at risk students. Overall Brunswick is a nice place to live as a family.

Brunswick is a quaint little town in upstate New York right outside of Troy and Albany. Growing up here was shaped my life into something I am very grateful. They say you are who you surround yourself with and being surrounded by all of the kind hearted people of the town, I was shaped to have the same outlook on life. That outlook being always lend a helping hand to those in need but also create the time to focus on yourself and do what makes you happy. I have learned many lessons growing up here and I know what I have learned will prepare me for my inevitable and approaching future.
Brunswick is a nice place. It is quiet and peaceful. Occasionally you get to see some wildlife like deer. If you live in Brunswick, you can go swimming at the lake for free.
