    Crown Heights, located in Brooklyn, is known to be a diverse neighborhood. It is notoriously known to an unsafe and run-down neighborhood, but the recent gentrification of the neighborhood is proving its reputation wrong. There have been numerous reports of tension and anti-Semitism between the Black people and Jews in Crown Heights.

    Nonetheless, we went for a couple hours to say we went and were all good with the Big Guy.
