Morrisania, The Bronx

Morrisania is a neighborhood in the Bronx. Many people refer to the area as the South Bronx, not only because Morrisania is difficult to pronounce. Morrisania was the site of the infamous Charlotte Street, which President Jimmy Carter visited in 1977, declaring the South Bronx to be the worst neighborhood in the United States. Ronald Reagan and later Bill Clinton also visited Charlotte Street, which had become the symbol of urban decay in the South Bronx. The appearance of Charlotte Street has changed a lot since then, now it is filled with suburban style ranch houses. Like everywhere in the South Bronx, the majority of people still lives below the poverty line.
