I live in a neighborhood called Sunset Park. Sunset Park is like my hometown. Most of the time I am walking back from school, and I can hear most of the cars honking while I cross the streets. I can also hear people screaming at each other, I can’t make out what they are saying. But I can hear something like “Hey yo what’s wrong with you.” I can still remember when my mom took me for a walk through the park called Sunset Park.

One thing I don’t like is that there are people that cause my mom to have trust issues and won’t let me outside, by myself unless I go to school or the store next to our apartment. Well what happened to cause my mom this fear is that she saw the news, and plenty of time she will hear them saying a girl has gone missing in Sunset Park. So this caused my mom to have the fear to let me outside by myself. But I know that this can happen anywhere, not just in the neighborhood of Sunset Park. But for me I feel free around my neighborhood.

When I walk through this neighborhood I feel safe with no fear. The neighborhood Sunset Park means so much to me. This is where I grew up since I was little. I always go to the park that is called the same as the neighborhood Sunset Park. I have been going to that park for 13 years. When I think about Sunset Park the first thing that comes to mind is the sunset. I can go to the park and sit in the grass seeing the view of how the sun sets. These memories will alway stay in my head.

Its so interesting to learn about others living situations. Just seeing what people are like and why. What if you didn’t grow up there? What if only half your life? How would you feel anywhere else?
