Caption: NYU is a prestigious university, ranking #9 in “best education schools ranking of 2023”, and they’re widely known for their excellence in the arts as well as in business. They have numerous buildings in Manhattan and a great number of students, 62% to be exact, come from the top 20%. The students were constantly walking around to get class and leisurely hanging out at the park. Although this was a place of great education, it was also a place that many students took time to mellow out.
Caption: This is Maspeth an area where 19 people per 100,000 people face assault in and the school in the area has 3.9/5 and is in area of the middle and working class. The school,P.S.229, is a k-5 school and there’s is no noise and violence in this entire neighborhood. The area is safe and nurtures it students, as I was one of them many years ago when I was a child. This was taken to show how a suburban area with low rates of violence and that’s not in poverty, leads to safer and better education.
Caption: This is PS229 and despite the spray painted concrete and sad looking building, It was a safe place for kids to go to. I myself went here for Kindergarten and never faced any violence or form of harassment. Again, this is a K-5 school so I see kids of different ages walking to this school with their parents all the time. Later in the day, many kids play recess outside without any fear of getting harmed and they provided with equipment to play.
Caption: Yet another image of the quiet-suburban area of Maspeth. The streets are mostly clean and the school buses pick up the children without any fuss. This entire area promotes safety and healthy life style. This an environment that should encourage your child to go to school and build relationships so that they can play outside and obtain knowledge.
