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!
I love the different diversities. In the Bronx you will find people of all backgrounds. In the Bronx you find different people people embracing their cultures. Yet everyone feels like family. I would like to describe the Bronx as one big diverse yet inclusive family. In the Bronx, their has been various strategies to promote healthy living. For instance, parks are being renovated to include more activities for kids to exercise, and just enjoy the benefits of play. Although their are many positive aspects in the Bronx, their are some cons. Gang related issues still reside in different neighborhoods. Hopefully with more positive initiative like job opportunities, affordable housing, Boys and Girls club, etc. this issue will subside.
