The Bronx Reviews

The culture in The Bronx is beautiful. It is known as the birthplace of hip hop and it is absolutely lively! You can find some of everything here, from food to fashion to cultural pieces/neighborhoods. The rent here still hasn't sky-rocketed so it's livable which is great.
It is starting to become gentrified though. Seeing the people who helped make every community what it is be pushed away causes quite the melancholy mood. I would love to see this borough become much cleaner and as with every area I would love to see crime decline but not at the cost of losing The Bronx's soul.

If there's one thing that sticks to the Bronx, its affordability. The area of New York City can be hectic to live in due to costly rents and challenging conditions such as dangerous neighborhoods, drug-ridden locations, and unsanitary hazards. New York in general is taking a big step towards change with all the new innovations that they come up with; extended train lines, increasing security measures, and an increase in opportunities for those less fortunate than others. This is home, and hopefully home gets better within a few years!
Growing up in the Bronx has left me with mixed feelings. It is a neighborhood and city that I am very familiar with, which in turn, gives me comfort. However, the streets are not the cleanest, some areas are not the safest, and people aren't always the friendliest. Aside from all of that, I think the biggest issue that I have is that I have outgrown the city, and would like to live in a suburban area with grass and trees and open skies!
