There are elevators in all of the buildings, lots of food delivery, but little community engagement. The people that work in my building are helpful but do not check on tenants of the building.

The Bronx area where I live still nice are but everyone are in their own house and some are friendly and some unfriendly. I just say hello and good byeto people that only say hello. I feel like in my neighborhood everyone is their own place and own house and I really have no one as a friend, my neighborhood Is kind of quiet and peaceful.
