Where I live: the good and bad of Richmond

Richmond is often described as a city fractured by crime and divided into districts of differing safety profiles. “Richmond has had its ups and downs. I’ve been a resident for 21 years. I know what streets not to take while walking alone late at night, and how to avoid the many blocks that have dogs at almost every house.” One youth takes us through Richmond, explaining the feelings she associates with different neighborhoods, while others say where they feel safe in their city, on Richmond Pulse.
