Part Four: Monologue
The value of a home or apartment is affected by the neighborhood its in.  If it’s a safe and wealthy neighborhood, with lots of conveniences, then prices will be pretty high. If it’s dangerous and far away from things like shopping and public transport, the price will be lower. Conveniences that people look for in cities include shopping centers, public transportation, parking, restaurants and nightlife, and if they have children, parks and schools. Most neighborhoods are safe, although there are some that can be dangerous, especially at night.  Many young people who want to live in the city will often live in a more dangerous section to save money. This has helped poorer parts of cities in recent years, as young people bring money into the neighborhood.
住宅或公寓的价格受它附近的环境影响。如果环境安全,住户较为富裕,生活设施方便的话,价钱不会便宜。如果周遭环境不安全,而且远离购物中心和公交车站,价钱则会低一些。在市区里,人们要求的生活方便设施包括购物中心,公交车站,停车场,餐馆和夜生活的去处。如果有小孩的话,还包括公园和学校。大多数环境是安全的,当然会有一些也不安全,尤其在晚上的时候。很多想住在市区的年轻人为了省钱往往会选择不太安全的地方居住。由于年轻人的消费,给近几年市区中较贫困地区的发展做出了一些贡献。
