I grew up in North Long Beach and now am working there too. From the time I was growing up until now the city has gone to hell. It seem like the police don't do very much. They let that part of the city go to the dealers, hookers, and bums so that the rest of the city can thrive and look great. Well guess what, the people who are there know what is going on and we don't like it. For some reason there are preschools with liquor store opening up just across the street from them.. big NO NO.
Some where along the lines someone over looked this poor part of the city, but just remember, North Long Beach doesn't just border Compton, and have the Carmalitos, we also have Lakewood and Bixby Knolls to consider. So clean up the city or we will be one of the cities that no one wants to be in anymore and we will just be in a deeper hole that we can't dig ourselves out of. Something must be done, and done soon.
