One of the kids we talked to who lived in the neighborhood, Cory, pointed out that there are hardly any streetlights. I looked around and the only one I saw as at the intersection. He said it got really really dark at night, so he usually doesn't go out. This was something he would like to change.

Cory also didn't like all the abandoned houses, he wanted to do something with them.

Both of the boys we talked to today liked making things with their hands, and were enjoying the birdhouses that they are making in the wood shop.

It also seems like a lot of the kids are into sports, especially basketball and football. The school doesn't have a soccer field or a football field, I think they only have a gym which is limiting.
