Even though it is a neighborhood full of public neglect because mostly minorities live here, it is my home and I appreciate it and love it probably more than if I lived in a white rich neighborhood. The people who live here have culture, and have caring hearts. Old people vibe and listen to music together outside, converse and play with their grand children. Everyone is hard working but there is beauty in their handwork and struggle. There's different cultures in every apartment and home, every door smells of a different but delicious food.

Although there is high gang activity reported in the surrounding arears, my neighborhood is pretty safe. We have around the clock security and the local police are often visible patrolling. Every building requires a special key fob for entry and there are plenty of cameras.
Outsiders may not find this area as favorable, but I am very comfortable here. I have lived here most of my life and know almost everyone in my neigborhood. Access to transportation is the BEST in this area. There is every type of business in walking distance.
