If you ask anyone who knew this city 10+ years ago where the hood was, the CD was a first answer. Yes there are other answers too.
This CDN site seems conflicted on whether it is a neighborhood or a hood. It’s both.
What I’m wondering:
Why do people drop so much money on houses that are in the hood?
Why do people expect the hood to go away once they become homeowners here?
What I understand:
When you are not from the hood you don’t really understand what goes on in it.
You also don’t really understand why the hood is the hood.
As someone who is not from the hood, you have the privilege of not having to understand those things.
What I expect to hear (read):
“This is not the hood, the house is wonderful, and my neighbors are great it’s just those evil neighbors, drug dealers, and prostitutes.”
“Everyone has the right to a wonderful life free of crime and now that I live here I want that not only for myself but for everyone around me!!”
