I have lived in Soundview for over 7 years, and in that time have noticed the diversity in the neighborhood. That diversity has brought services and goods into the neighborhood to benefit everyone. Only change needed are signs to remind neighbors to pick up their dogs poop.

So far, it's almost like a fine place to live in. You see a lot of diversity as soon as you walk out of your building. There are some trees around which makes it look great. Something I never liked about this neighborhood is that a lot of people smoke a lot. Yes, there's people like that everywhere but it's just a lot sometimes. When I get to my building, I can smell the smoke in and outside, even though it's prohibited to smoke there. During the summer, some people tend to open the fire hydrants which bothers me a lot because all of that water is going to waste. Like once these hydrants are opened, nobody does anything to close them and A LOT of water just keeps coming out.
The South Bronx has been my home for the last 18 years of my life. It has toughened my family and I up. Once you hit the means streets of New York you have to be aware of your surroundings all the time. Whether its getting off the subway heading to school, home, or the bank. I live in Washington state now and the environment lifts my spirits within itself every morning. I feel refreshed and people smile at me while walking. Not that there is not crime anywhere else, but in my home in the Bronx, there was just too many. I lived across the street from a NYPD and FDNY. I would hear the gates lifting and see the siren lights go off at least three times in a school week. My house was broken into, and no one was caught for the crime. It was a traumatizing experience. Ever since we have extra locks and cameras.
