Borough Park Reviews

I have been living in Borough park for 21 years. My experience in this neighborhood has been incredible. This is the neighborhood where I met my best friends and close neighbors that ended up being closer than actual blood relationships. The best thing about this neighborhood is that its very safe even at night and us girls can walk without fear. Another beneficial aspect to this neighborhood is that it has many bus stands, train stations and a hospital right around the corner.

Borough Park is an extremely safe and family-friendly neighborhood that is comprised mainly of Jews, Hispanics, and Chinese. Being in a quiet part of Brooklyn, the public schools and nightlife are laughable, but has D, F, and N service that takes many of its inhabitants to better schools in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
I live in Brooklyn, so there are some areas that are beautiful and some areas that are not so great. I live in one of those so-so areas. Its safe, but its not the most aesthetically appealing. For our first apartment it was perfect for us, I have no complaints in this area. But in the future I would like to move to a nicer part of Brooklyn.

Brooklyn is the new up and coming Manhattan. Currently, Brooklyn is the most expensive place to live in the entire United States; so that definitely says something about the location as well.

I do love it here though!
