    I'm here temporarily, staying with family. Brookhaven is a quiet little town with a throw back to the 30's and 40's. Downtown renovations of old buildings have resulted in some charming executive style apartments and rentals with a feel of the old south. Brookhaven is a friendly place but if you are looking for a technologically advanced area with all of the trappings of a larger, modern city, Brookhaven is not your niche. This is the place for a Gone With The Wind weekend!

    I have lived in Brookhaven all of my life; and I love the small town feel of it. Everywhere you go people are always friendly towards you. I love that so many people in this town are willing to help others who are in need. I would say that Brookhaven is full of very compassionate people. I also like how clean the town is; the landscapes are always beautiful at every business. Brookhaven is a town where you feel at home no matter if you are a resident or a visitor. I plan to stay here for a very long time and hope that it continues to stay the great town that it is.

    I loved growing up in a small town. Brookhaven is safe and quiet town making it a desireable place to raise a family. It's one of those "everybody knows everybody" type towns though. That can be bothersome to some people who enjoy their privacy. But overall the people of this town genuinely care about each other and only want to help you.
