The South Bronx is an incredibly diverse community that continues to evolve with time. With 666,000 residents, it would be considered the twentieth most populated city in the United States. Statistics tell one side of the story: The South Bronx is one of the poorest districts in the entire nation (U.S. Census Bureau, 2010). It also has the highest hunger rates and the highest obesity rates in the country. As a whole, the school districts perform the lowest in the state. However, the people tell the other side of the story: the energy of South Bronx residents, the vibrant culture of the community, and the incredible diversity that is found in few other places.
