over all not a great place to live. the area i live in is a bad environment to be in. Over all people are just misguided and wont change but don't stand we have to educate or self first then make change with love. but poverty has a whole of my environment. i wish not to live here but what can you do, sense i'm here i rather be the change or help the change in my environment reason for me applying for a scholar ship.
Review Brownsville
The neighborhood I live in is quiet however there are a lot of cars that use the residential streets in this area. I live in a house and there are only houses in my neighborhood which is a plus.
The location that I am in, does not have a gym nearby. I can't say the gym is 10, or at least 15 minutes away from my house because that would be a lie. I would have to get on the expressway for that to be the case. The grocery stores around here, are not that well kept, I can blame the population around but the individuals that own the place too, the most decent spot is the Mcdonalds, in which its kept at a superb cleanliness, but of course its a fast food place.
