New City Reviews
I am currently living in New City and the problem is evident. It is an under-resourced community with an abundance of problems. To name a few there is gang violence, alcohol abuse, and over policing. Although there is a lot of negativity in this neighborhood beauty also thrives. La Internacional is a local grocery store with a small restaurant in the back; there you can get the best tacos in town and buy fresh groceries at the same time. There are a number of different local businesses that have found solace in the community. Art is another thriving source of productivity. As you travel the neighborhood you can find art decorating walls and store fronts. Lastly, as you walk the streets of the neighborhood or drive your car through you can see the hard working people of the neighborhood who are trying their best to be good people. I give this neighborhood a 4/5 because although negative forces seem to be overpowering its reputation, hope still lives on.
The community I live in is great because of the values of family and work. We are all hard workers and we watch out for each other (especially those of us working the 2nd or 3rd shift! ) We have our occasional parties but because we value a strong work ethic, we know when to cut it short. The public transportation is amazing and easily accessible to various CTA routes. My one and only complaint about this neighborhood is the Sanitation. Sometimes our garbage is overflowed and the garbage men come around 2 times a week and never take all the trash! it's always something left behind. Because of this trash pickup issue there is a lot of bugs and rats(yes rats! not mouses) in the neighborhood. Thank God they haven't migrated to my home or else i would move with a quickness. This one and only reason is why I will not renew my lease and am currently looking for another neighborhood.
Growing up in New City has been a scary and frightening lifestyle. Experiencing shootings, deaths, and violence has impacted my life.
