This has been the trouble with this boro for too many years. There seems to be people who feel they are entitled to move into this area and turn it into a complete slum. Well you're wrong!
The Bronx has a long and very beautiful history. There was a time when moving up here meant that a person was making his or her life better. It was a beautful place to raise a family. It was full of working class people who took a lot of pride in what they had and what this boro had to offer.
Today it's very different. And people like you have given it the poor reputation it has.
There are very beautiful buildings up here. Beautiful old buidings where you can live and not have to know who lives next door because you can hear them snore at night. Some of the landlords are taking really good care of these places and it isn't easy any more. People like you move in, take over, do what you want, leave the place looking like a trailer park after a twister and then leave. (Most of what's here go back where they came from. And let's just say that they never wualified for a US passport).
Sounds like you just did as you pleased. Dogs! THREE dogs! Illegal apartment! No lease. You have 2100 dollars and you say you can't pay the rent. It's more than obvious that you just won't pay the rent.
Well, good for you. MOVE!
There are some of us here who have been here for more than 3 generations and some of us are fed-up and sick to death of all this sobbing nonsense. You've taken too much advantage of a good thing and now it's gone.
Live with it and find yourself a mortgage in some other place where your type is welcome.
The Bronx won't cry for your leaving. It will just mean that there's one less to try to keep us down.
