Berlin reminds me of one of the small towns you see in movies. It's place where you can't just run into the local supermarket, because as soon as you cross of the threshold of the supermarket doors there are ten people you know, and you have to have the "catch up" conversation with. The feeling of Berlin is warm and kind, it really brings me home.

Berlin Boro is a great place to raise a family. BCS is a wonderful school. Our neighbors are great and the town is quaint.
