It's the ongoing topic about writing stories about new housing developments in Kensington instead of taking the easy route and writing about the old run down houses that are basically everywhere. The only problem with writing stories about the new housing developments is that there are so many run down houses in the neighborhood that they are so hard to ignore. For someone just entering the neighborhood for the first time, it's an obvious thing to just run and find out why. Why the houses are old and why haven't the owners made more of an effort to try and make them look better. I understand that other people have tried to figure out these same issues but it truly is hard to ignore knowing that some family probably had to raise children there or knowing that house was the best way they could provide shelter for their family. Although for every one new house that is being constructed there are ten old beaten down houses that people are living in or are abandoned. It is an issue that is discussed a lot but once the issue gets resolved it will never stop being talked about.
