    Overall Experience at East Flatbush: My community has strong ethnic heritage. Many of my neighbors are family members or family friend's from their homeland. Yes there are individuals or groups that I don't like in my are but the area is better than most and I am comfortable there.

    Overall Experience at Corona: It's alright the neighborhood as in the people who live here isn't where I feel like my little sister should grow up. I don't want her going to school with those kinds if bad influence kids so we had to go to a further away school.
