As my grandmother always says, the Bronx has come a long way since the 1970's. Many investments have helped create new small businesses, which in turn has generated thousands of new jobs. There are limited--Yet successful businesses and markets, such as unisex salons , convenient and appliance stores, and grocery markets, which are not only easily accessible, but provides limited space for employment to the individuals in need of a job. The employment rate in the community is not significantly high, nor severely low. But job opportunities are very scarce. Everyday I witness at least one impoverished person sacrificing themselves in order to provide for themselves, and in most cases, for their families as well. Especially now in the winter there would be people who get paid to shovel in the harsh snow and homeless people gathering bottles and cans to receive at least $10 to get through the week. Which strikes strong sympathy upon me because these are the people of my community and I can do nothing but wish that they pull through the rough economy and find ways to improve themselves financially .

The local business in this area are very accessible and convenient to the residents of the Bronx. Almost anything can be acquired by just walking down a couple of blocks. There are a few pleasant clothing stores that provide customers a variety of different styles from all around the world--from Africa to India. There are also the supermarkets that allow customers to walk through the neat aisles and explore new foods and ethical choices while helping the consumers save heaps amount of money--Especially coupon hoarders. Whereas, the Chinese restaurants and fried chicken spots are pricey but the opportunity of being able to try different food combination ideas, at any given time,24 hours a day seven days a week, whenever you want, can be pretty exciting.
The reason why I applicably gave a considerably low rate on crime and safety on my community is because, police protection is moderate and crime occurrences are very high. In the past four months, there has been two murders, one armed robbery incident, and a rape case. When these serious crimes occurred, the FBI investigated the crimes and questioned the neighborhood. That lasted only for a week. When the investigations were over, the FBI assigned only a handful of Police Officers to be on neighborhood watch for two weeks. After the Police Officers duty to observe the neighborhood was completed, it was as if nothing ever happened. As soon as criminals saw that law enforcement were no longer roaming the streets, the shootings commenced. Every other week, as I tried to close my eyes to get a good night's rest for school the next day, I would be awaken by either loud quarrels or gunshots. How unlucky I would be if I heard both. It is a horrible experience living in a community where anything violent can unpredictably happen, even when there are small children around. When the summer arrives, I choose to not be around my neighborhood, primarily because a violent confrontation erratically tends to happen. I detest having to witness crimes happen right in front of me. I have seen Disputes turn into fist fights; men flirting with women end up battling their husbands in knife battles, and gang violence ends up disturbing the people of my community when they are outside trying to enjoy the summer breeze with their families. I trust that the more police we have protecting my neighborhood, mainly in the summertime, the less crime there will be.
