Brownsville is moderated in size; not to small and not to big. I like how there are parks and thoes parks have sports leagues;therefore, children all ages are interacting and being physical actice. This means healtier children and happy families. Brownsville has all kinds of help from affortable public transportation to catholic church food pantrys for the needy families. Thee schools have their own trasportation for the students and have a budget for evens or field trips. The city i well maintained and th police officers do a good job protecting the citizens. I wouldnt change anything from Brownsville because i believe is perfect in it's own way.

Brownsville is a small but busy city of Texas with a lot of history and effort in it's residents. Public Schools from Brownsville are organized and comitted to their student's education, I really like it's after school programs and many services out of school open to all students and it's guardians such as gym, programs and family counselor. What I would like to change about it it's the conservative rules in campus for irrelevant reasons. Nightlife is pretty interesting in Brownsville but kind of limited if your interests include less than a scandalous night and more of a coffee and live music night. In Brownsville there are a lot of recreational parks and fun places for the families. The average cost for a house of one bedroom without water bills included is around four hundred dollars. Job opportunities in Brownsville are decent but it is more likely for you to get a job if somebody recomends you, if not you might struggle trying to find a job.

My neighborhood is relatively safe and quiet! If need be, the police station is about three minutes away from this area via the expressway or ten through a regular route. I've never seen someone so much as get pulled over for a traffic violation in my area. The police presence is pretty minimal.
