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!

I love the diversity in the bronx, but many areas are poor in education, health and community service. There is a lack of programs for kids to healthily engage which is why many turn to the illegal activities of the streets. There should be more after school programs offered especially in music and the arts. Its unbelievable that NO book stores are found in the Bronx!
The place is very affordable to live in. Many people often have stereotype about the Bronx, how unsafe it is, but it is not! People are so nice to each other. You can also definitely see the multicultural aspects of living in New York City. You see Indians, Asians, Hispanics, African Americans, Caucasians in every block!
Lastly, the commute to any urban areas, such as Manhattan, Westchester, Yonkers, and Fort Lee.
