"Busy street to live on, but well-worth the schools."

Prairie Avenue is one of the busier 2-lane streets that run through Brookfield. It is busy during the day, but at night it is well-lit and nicely quiet. Prairie Avenue is only a few blocks east of the police station, forest preserve and small creek. The police are laid back, but safety doesn't seem too much of an issue. The schools rank as some of the best in the state, so this makes it a great place to raise kids. Not to mention Brookfield Zoo - the kids always love that!
