This is so sad. In the 80’s and 90’s I was always in this neighborhood visiting family, and would take long walks in the summer with my grandfather, who lived here since the 60’s, as well as my grandmother. The neighborhood was very family oriented and was mostly white and italian. It was also mostly crime free and as quiet as pin. Unfortunately the area has lower class of people in the area and has turned to crap. Very sad and unfortunate that people will sell there home to undesirables to make a quick buck. Just look at the hellhole flushing has become in the last 20 yrs disgusting.
I would hope that you cover something besides crime
