Brentwood is an affluent suburb of Nashville, Tennessee.
According to Wikipedia:
(As of 2007) "The median home price in Brentwood is $523,477. The median household income in Brentwood is $130,580."
Brentwood parents often send their children to the better private schools in the Middle Tennessee area (ie Battle Ground Academy, Brentwood Academy, Harpeth Hall, St. Cecelia's Academy, Montgomery Bell Academy, Father Ryan High school, and Franklin Road Academy). However, Brentwood High school and Ravenwood High school are two of the best public schools in Tennessee. Teenagers typically not only have their own car by 15 or 16, but in quite a few cases, their own expensive/luxury car. It is not uncommon to see many - if not all - girls wearing designer clothing and carrying designer bags (especially Coach, Louis Vuitton, Dooney and Bourke, Juicy Couture etc). Depending on trends, most younger teens are seen wearing Hollister, Abercrombie, or American Eagle apparel. Ralph Lauren and Lacoste polos are a popular name brand among all Brentwood residents. Brentwood was the first place I heard someone coin the term "prosti-tot" - for all the young ( <17-18 aged) girls who dress promiscuously while parading around the few "teen hang outs" in the Brentwood/Coolsprings area. Prosti-tots are apparently jail-bait and present potential trouble for 18+ aged boys who fail to realize they're hitting on a 14 year-old with just too much make-up and cleavage.
The party scene in Brentwood is not so great unless you're one who always enjoys going to X's house party while the parents are away (or in some cases, while the parents are present) to drink yourself to oblivion only to do the same the following weekend or whenever. In a hasty generalization of the younger crowd (and I do not excuse myself in this negative stereotype): we (teens/college students) are all just a bunch of spoiled and bored people. I still love living here, though. Haha.
After his/her graduation, (Insert Name) returned to his/her house in Brentwood to host a party where his/her (Insert School Name) and (Insert School Name) friends joined to drink alcohol and take pictures of their insobriety.
Upon my return to Brentwood from Vandy for the summer, I found that Franklin Road (a main road that runs through Brentwood) had been resurface/repaved. I was very excited.
