Great school. Great shops. Great people! Neighborhoods are friendly and have great people living in them. Everyone talks to everyone. Many job opportunities. Close to downtown Philadelphia and the night life. Many churches and hospitals in the surrounding areas.

Brookhaven has a general feeling of safety and community about it. Neighbors are friendly and willing to help each other out. Our police are diligent and care for our safety. Lots of parks and wooded areas to explore to get into nature.

Police are often seen out and about the neighborhood. I have never felt unsafe or witnessed any crimes taking place.
