I have lived in New York for 37 years and in my community of Yonkers for 23 years. The changes I have seen within my community of Yonkers is the education level has decreased and kids are not learning the amount they are supposed too. Upcoming generations are not excelling and the youth are not able to move upward. Overall, everything about this town has gone backwards.

I have lived in Brooklyn, NY over 30 years and I now live in East New York for 5 months now. The changes I have noticed in my community are gentrification and the dmisplacement of people in the communities from where they grew up. Although there is a lot of diversity increasing, people who have invested time in the community can’t afford to stay there and often times they have no place to go.

I have lived in New York for 30-35 years. In my community of Rockaway Beach, I have lived here for 15-16 years and I raised my daughter there. The changes I have noticed are development of private houses, a recreational YMCA, new supermarket and new roads. The violence has decreased in Rockaway Beach area due to a better community policing that is involved. I look forward to the changes later this year.

My campaign was and still is public housing. Since 1988 I have lived in New York and since 1989 I have lived at Wagner Housing. The types of changes I have noticed in my community are two supermarkets’ that are privately owned. To me, I consider this a bad thing because the prices are outrages. The vendors are no longer in the streets because of it. In terms of crime, Wagner housing is the worse development.
