I've only been to The Bronx a few times in my life. And that was mainly to Woodlawn . The Bronx is pretty much completely ghetto. Us Riverdalians don't have time for such ghettoness .

Whoa man I'm from the ghetto too. It's not like we chose to live in the ghetto. Most people in the ghetto are great people. It's just the small portion that make it bad. But we all have our opinions and I respect everyone's.

Not a place I wanted to stay at. People work to get out of the ghetto. But a lot of good people work in the ghetto. I moved out of the north because the taxes were killing me. I'm hoping to retire from my job within the next year or 2. Are you from the west coast?
