I do wish people in The Bronx would use neighborhood names instead of saying they live in "Gun Hill" or "Brook Ave", though

I think may do that so a person who doesn't really know the Bx may have some idea. When I say my area no one knows it except those who live in the Bronx nearby. Saying what train stop people live off is also common.

How big of an area does the Hub really cover? I thought it was meant to refer just to that intersection, but is it used in common parlance for a greater area?

I have to say 311 is legit. I've had them come take care of some graffiti and the job actually got done!

I called 311 a few times and got the following taken care of on my block:

-illegal dumping removed
-sidewalk grates replaced
-streetlights replaced
