Setting & Lifestyle
Brooklyn is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The village’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Brooklyn’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.
Brooklyn is a small village, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
