My name is Mike, and I live on Arrowood Court, which is located in Section 6 of Woodbrooke Estates. I have lived in this community since May 2001, and just as soon as my new house in New Jersey is completed in the spring, I'm outta here!
The stories which you have heard about Woodbrooke Estates are true! The development is a dump, and if I were you, I would steer clear of the place!
The local police (123rd Precinct) are the laziest in the city, and it takes them literally HOURS (if at all) to respond to calls for assistance. Woodbrooke Estates does not bother to provide professional security during the summer months, so the juvenile delinquent punks who live in the community run amok, vandalizing and writing graffitti all over the development!
The "amenities" (if you want to call them that) consist of an undersized swimming pool, a clubhouse and clubhouse parking lot which the residents are forbidden to use, dilapidated handball, tennis, and basketball courts, and a so-called "meadow" which is usually filled with teenage kids hanging out, drinking beer, and having sex!
Don't believe me? Take a walk throughout the development on a weekend evening and see for yourself!
