around 187th in Authur st theres a block called the SHIT block because every space in the block is full of poop. I always wonder why is it that the bronx in the most abanded borough in NYC. Is it us the people in it or is it the lack of attention the goverment gives the bronx.
People seem to litter a lot in the bronx walking down in the street and seeing a piece of crap in the floor its a normal thing for us. It has become part of the bronx. We even try to find something positive of it since we have so much of it. " if you step on crap that means good luck". Isnt that pathetic?
Sometimes i look at the city and its not like we all really see in the pictures. The only positive thing from it its the lights and the high buildings. When it comes to negative i could go on forever. Thiefs,Littering,Poop,Bums ECT but for some reason i still love to live in it. If you asked me I am a Bronx girl and love even the negative things from it.

As you may see in the picture above NYC is a place where people litter a lot. Its such a big place and many dont try to take care of it. a Friend of mines has a blog about trash in which NYC is in. It shows how trash in NYC hurts us economically and we dont seem to stop it.
This is what some of us in NYC see of MTA since the fare is going to change. not for better but for worst; at least in our pocket is going from $2 to $2.25. It must be just a quarter but little by little that quarter hurts us with the money we work for.

The phone that every teenager seems to carry around. The new thing in 2009 . The Sidekick. This phone has become not only the new thing but the new target of choices for thieves.
" A 21 year old man recently walked along Orchard and Hawthorn streets, when a stranger approached and asked for a cigarette. The man felt uneasy and tried to run away for his sidekick." as it was said in the article thats 1 out of many times people got robbed for their phone.
According to police reports, there have been 12 to 16 robberies in New Bedford this year in which someone was accosted for a Sidekick.
I think sidekicks are a lot of fun to have but is something that its hard to not be in danger while you own one in the city. I personally have one and i got robbed in the street once and 2 times in school (they went in my bookbag).The city seems to always bring something negative to those things that are suppose to be fun.
Kevin Bacon was in the B D and E station at 53 st when they robbed his phone. He tried to run after the theft but Kevin wasn't able to catch up with him. The theft probably wanted to take his phone to sell all his information. Kevin is A famous person so image how it is for those that aren't and roam the city on daily basics. People robbing your electronics in the city is something you always have to be aware of. It has become a hobby to many; take other people stuff and RUN.
