I was asked to write about a neighborhood I haven’t seen and I think that this Is a perfect one cause I used to be familiar with It back then. I think that since I haven’t vaulted for a while it is perfect for this assignment. When I went to 1 1st I thought everything was going to be pretty much the same but quite a few things changed. Before, it would be dangerous to go out to the park or anymore because there were a lot of gangs. When I went to visit this week it was so nice. They made new apartments all over the place. The park where I used to go also changed a lot.
It seems friendlier and the people that live in that neighborhood seem kind. I remember when I was a child my mom wouldn’t let go to the store alone even though it was right across my street because she knew about the gangs around. Another thing that changed about the neighborhood was that before, a lot of Dominicans and African Americans used to live there. Now, a lot of Asian people live there, especially in the new built apartments. I also saw that a lot of Mexicans and Ecuadorian live there. The house where I live is still there.
I used to go to Luis Armstrong Elementary School AS. 143. It was the neighborhoods closest school. I lived exactly 2 blocks away from it. That school has a lot of meaning to the neighborhood because Luis Armstrong himself used to live there. They have his house on 1st which is pretty close to 21st. That is a very important landmark. He was a very famous Jazz musician. Back then 21st was the neighborhood to many Jazz listeners. The Louis Armstrong House was the home of Louis Armstrong and his wife Lucille between 1943 and 1971.
His wife gave the house to the city so they could create a museum out of their home when Luis Armstrong passed away. They kept the furnishings exactly how Mr.. Armstrong left them, which makes that house/museum very valuable. You can go In for the fee of ten dollars and get a 40 minute tour of his whole house. Then after your tour you’re allowed to relax and hang out In the garden. They even have a museum store with Luis Armstrong merchandise.
