Explain why these are aspects that you attribute to “bad” neighborhoods. Also, please watch the documentary, “New York: A Documnentary Film,” Episode 7.

Another would be zero to no crimes as it shows how safe that neighborhood is. Lastly, clean supermarkets are suitable for the district providing food for the people. What makes a setting terrible would be the crime rates, areas of the community which are not clean, and the use of drugs in the area. Most of these things can be challenging for most people, tiny children, as they look up to people as role models in life to move forward. ENDRIKA- The tranquility, comfort, and security of your home are essential aspects of good living. The first thing I see is a clean neighborhood, a family-friendly neighborhood with lots of businesses around with friendly people with clean and well-kept parks for the kids to enjoy. I feel that a neighborhood that is clean and organized tends to be a good neighborhood organization is key. The family atmosphere in a neighborhood is always good. Location is very important as this greatly influences whether the neighborhood is safe or not and safety is one of the most important things when looking for a neighborhood. I consider a bad neighborhood when there is crime, when there is a low level of sanitation, and when there is a lot of poverty. Unfortunately, poverty greatly influences young people to delinquency and when there is no security it can be a dangerous environment for the family. A neighborhood that is exposed to crimes is a dangerous neighborhood no one would want to live in an unsafe neighborhood.
