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.

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!
great area, with good schools, real nice and quite, great grassy environment! When the time comes i hope i can be able to be apart of the great community of individuals, and the various opportunities that the area admits...
