South Bronx, New York, NY: Neighborhood Review

I have been a native South Bronx resident for eight years, now and I love living here. I grew up in Brooklyn and moved to the South Bronx when I was in my early twenties. I love the rich history that the South Bronx has to offer. It is a tough neighborhood but I love the hispanic culture and knowing this is the birthplace of Hip Hop and Salsa music. The Beaux Arts structure is a cultural landmark which is just a few blocks away from my apartment. Orchard Beach is another attraction just minutes away and you can experience the wonderful views of the Atlantic Ocean.

However, here is my problems with the South Bronx. It has a strong network of communities, cultural centers and restaurants but it is also a dangerous place to raise a family as there is a lot of street violence and domestic abuse. It is also rife with impoverished areas of living and there are definitely streets I do not walk down alone. I think South Bronx is beautiful and I have learned to love living here but it is not for everyone, and I think that is one of the main reasons why South Bronx has gained a reputation for being a tough and hard place to live in. However, it is one of the most diverse boroughs in New York. It features many ethnicities, religions, and classes of people from all over the world. I love waking up and talking a walk down my block because it feels like a real melting pot, which is what makes American such a special place to live in. And living in South Bronx you can feel the love and diversity of what this borough has to offer.
