Walking through the streets of the South Bronx, I interviewed several residents. Here are a few who wanted to share their thoughts.

  • Construction workers Daniel Johnson, Mo Perkins and Alexis Asencio on a lunch break.

  • Tiffany Williams window shops in the Bronx but says she can't afford to buy anything.

  • Dominican brother and sister on the street. Neyis and Tommy Camilo. Ages 14.

  • Business is down at a automechanic shop where Gabriel Hernandez works.
