Mount Vernon is a town split
in half. A bridge divides this 4 square mile
town between a ghetto and a pretty
nice surburban neighborhood. Unlike
some of the definitions of my counterparts, the dividing line is not black/white, it is between urban/surburban. My whole
family is "white" and I grew up on the ghetto side. So, by default, there must
be more than
one or two white people. Sorry guys
your definition is inaccurate.
Mount Vernon also
has an underfunded
public school system, which suited me just fine. Life is what you make out of it. You can grow up poor on the ghetto side of mount vernon go through an underfunded
school system and still make something of yourself.
Vernon is the exact opposite of some of its neighboring towns. You have to work harder when your
Vernon to get certain places, but it is worth it. Mount
Vernonites learn the value of hard work.
