Brooklyn center is a peaceful place good to live. Everyone in my a neighborhood is nice. It is my second year living in Minnesota especially, in Brooklyn center. This environment makes me feel secure.
Brooklyn center is a pretty town. Covered with a polite and nice people.
Most of the time, if you found yourself in trouble, you can easily found someone who can help you. Four months ago, my car broke down in the middle of the parking store. I was very embarrassing and confusing and also shy to ask for help. After few minutes a group of three people came and help me to fix my car, without hesitation. I was so happy and lucky to be in a nice city.

Tons of shopping/food options, nature reserves to visit, airport and commute is good, but could overall improve parks and recreation areas.

Overall ranking I would say it is great, it's a very nice neighborhood. People are respectful and helpful, even though their have been some break in's not successful but still. I'm pretty sure the people trying to break in are from a different neighborhood, but overall it's a great place.
