“I’m struggling right now; I’m still happy”

Terrence Hinton walks along the edge of a pond in Dineen Park, his family relaxing on the opposite bank. Hinton grew up near 36th and Clarke. He says even though the neighborhood was “pretty rough” he still loves it – it’s his – but, sometimes, it’s nice to get away. “You know, [it was a] poor neighborhood. But there always be something good still, like these parks. That’s why they’re so good – cause you can get away from all of that. You go to a park, it’s something different – you can breathe.”
