The most memorable thing about my hometown , Egg Harbor City, is the Crusaders football games. When I was in middle school that would always be the top spot to hang out. Everyone would be waiting for that text " Are you going to the crusaders field?" We all would go for the taxi games and stay all the way until it was our time to cheer for the varsity games. Another top spot in Egg harbor City is the diner. No one ever says ew to the diner. They have everything and are open all the time. Also Egg Harbor city also has the famous Pepes which sells Mexican food. Everybody goes crazy for their em-pandas and spanish rice. Something that I would want to improve about Egg Harbor City is to provide more event or places for teens. There is really not much to do around the area because of the size. I believe having a " movie in the park" would be a great idea. They could have it on Saturday nights starting at eight o'clock. Other than that I believe Egg Harbor City is a great city to live in.

Egg Harbor City is a small city but the size makes it a lot easier to feel apart of a community. It has good schools, is a pretty safe neighborhood, and has parks for children to play at. There are a few things the city could do better with though, like having more activities for the community and keeping a better eye on the prison near one of the elementary schools. Overall, it's a very nice city that I'm proud to live in.
Egg Harbor City is very small. This has both negatives and positives in my perspective. It was very easy to get places without the use of a car. There are many job opportunities, especially for high schoolers. On the other hand, when you did drive, the streets were crowded with cars parked on the sides, most streets were narrow, and the close houses didn’t allow for much yard space. Not to mention that there were a lot of criminal incidents such as drug deals, juvie escapes, and fights throughout the city. It’s not a great place to raise children, but job opportunity and schooling is pretty good here.
