The Bronx has an unjustifiably bad reputation. Things have obviously changed a lot in the last few years or decades. In July & August, 2013, I walked from Manhattan to Riverdale in the Bronx, then through the Bronx, Queens & Brooklyn to Coney Island (took me 7 1/2 days), through the supposedly dangerous South Bronx; & nobody as much as looked cross-eyed at me - the only people who didn't totally ignore me were the Hispanic attendant in a Radio Shack, & 2 young black women whom I asked where the nearest bus stop is. Of course, I made an effort not to make eye contact with anybody, especially with tough-looking young men. Riverdale, Fieldston, Kingsbridge, Belmont, University Heights, the Grand Concourse & Mott Haven are all interesting, & even beautiful, to walk through, especially with an architectural guidebook in hand. Even the "projects," which I call "uglies," have one major saving grace: a pleasant park, with benches & water fountains.

The area on boricuas bond movie looked the worst. Puerto rican neighborhood. An area straight out of a nightmare.

I was born and raised in Soundview. In my building on Evergreen I had a Congressman, Assemblyman and Councilman all living in the building. The area was well protected by what they called the TPF (Tactical Patrol Force) which were specially trained police who arrived in targeted neighborhoods in buses and were proactive in dealing with crime. They were no joke.
Even though I moved (sigh) I go back frequently for the food and the flavor of the Bronx which is equal to none. I do not consider Soundivew as being on the list of one of the worse areas. It just does not fit the bill.

The one sure thing to be said about Bronxites is that they're mostly illiterate, uneducated, and are NOT ashamed to let the world know it.

Just look at the nature and quality of the comments. The writing and spelling are at best 5th grade level. This unfortunate borough is packed with human debris from every part of the world. Some of them feel like they've reached paradise. But like every place they stop, these people will turn that section of the city into an enclave of the ignorant, criminal, insane, uneducated, mostly worthless "people". Wherever they settle, blight sets in. It's like a conscious virus that crawls from city to city leaving worthlessness in its path.

You are, without a doubt, an imbecile. If you are able to judge an entire borough by the posts of a few people, you really are a jackass.

Wherever the most blacks are is the worst area. Just a hunch though.

<quoted text>I never stop to look when cops stop someone to question them. I just keep walking and mind my own business. Obviously you were NOT minding your own business because you stopped to look and see what was going on. Why did you feel that you had to stop and look? If it was two drug dealers that had stopped and pulled guns on each other would you have stopped to look also? Would you have said that they were being rude? Why were they disrespectful because they told you to move it along because there was nothing to see there. Get over it and stop making a big deal out of nothing. I mind my own business and so should you. And by the way nothing ever changes in the Bronx. When I lived there 40 years ago the people in the Ghetto did the exact same thing. Whenever the Police stopped someone they couldn't help stopping to see what was going on instead of just minding their own business and staying out of it. Typical Ghetto culture.
That is people culture you moron

Whatever hood has the highest percentage of blacks will be the worst. Any neighborhood with mostly blacks in it is a run down shythole.
