"Not the safest place but friendly"

I lived on Ocean Avenue by Prospect Park in Brooklyn Ny when I was young, and I must say I remember a lot of crime happening there. On the other hand, I also rememebr this great sense of community.

I have lived in a lot of places and was used to moving around a lot, but Ocean Avenue was one of those places where despite the crime rate, many people called home until the day they died. We would walk to the corner store to get candya nd the place next door to order Chinese food, and after about the thirs time being there, the employees usually already knew what we wanted. There was also a guy alex who owned a donut shop nearby and he used to pinch my cheeks I remember, as if he was my uncle saying hi, and as I grew older I realized, I didnt even really know that man.

You also had prospect park across the street, where they had a lake where we would go to feed the ducks after school and take our mind off the hustle and bustle in the street.
