In Brownsville there are many different types of people
there are people that make money the honest way and there are people who don't. where i live is what we call the "Hood". The hood is where middle class and lower class people live. in my hood drug and gang violence takes place. you have those people that work 9 to 5 jobs and then you have those that sell drugs and get their money the illegal way. a lot of different residential areas are in my hood, there are houses, private owned buildings and housing facilities. the people on block are very friendly at times but then you have those that aren't and they just be hating. you have the loud mouth girls and the dice rolling boys and they really don't have any lives but they could. honestly they could go to school and have jobs instead of being on the corner all day and night. my hood is very complex and fun. i believe that the community that i live in is not well taken care of because the housing complexes and facilities aren't up to par and aren't cared for in the right manner. they need to be cleaned better and the gang and drug violence needs to cease. i love my community but i don't spend much time there. i was born and raised in what we call "Da Stuy". i just recently moved to Brownsville and i wish i hadn't. all of my connections are in da stuy and i hang out there because is a better environment to me. the people are fun and i just about know every body that i see.but no matter what you have to love your community.

Erik Martin Dilan... my council member is the chair of housing. this connects with my community because there are a lot of housing facilities in my neighborhood such as Brownsville houses, Marcus Garvey and Saratoga houses. these are the low budget housing facilities in my neighborhood that are affordable and useful. i think that housing facilities should be car ed for even more because there is a lot of gang violence and drug trafficking all through these areas.
