Since I was born, I have not moved from my neighborhood at all. First of all, there are two bodegas that I cannot live without. If I want ice cream in the middle of winter and the bodega is open, then all I got to do is make a corner on the same block and there it is. On top of that, it's very peaceful and serene to walk or even sit on the steps and take on the scenery that even the birds are not that scared to approach you. However, gentrification has increased the rent to an absurd amount that the former residents can't even afford. Due to that, all of the tenants, who were Hispanic, in the apartment that I live in were evicted. Now, the current tenants are white and are upper class. The landlord did tried to evict my family, but there is no way my family and I are leaving this apartment due to the cost and also to spite her. Other than that, the neighborhood became a bit more safer to walk to even at night. That is all.
