Setting & Lifestyle
Because of many things, Bloomsbury is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Bloomsbury a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The borough’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values.

One downside of living in Bloomsbury, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 35.37 minutes every day commuting to work.
As is often the case in a small borough, Bloomsbury doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
