What kind of neighborhood did you grow up in?

I had gang bangers on my block. Which meant I had to jump brick walls to get home from school.
I refused to join any gangs. It was mostly probably because I was a geek that tripped over my own feet that they did not want me:(
Just kidding, but it was tough where I grew up at.

  • Not sure what I would consider my neighborhood. It was kind of a cross between the inner city and the suburbs.....

  • I was living near the 405 when OJ took his final ride in Bronco and I remember everyone cheering him on the side of the freeway.
    God all the times I remember.
