STAMFORD — Bonnie Kim Campbell looks out at the city’s West Side, where she’s lived all 66 years of her life and sees a diamond in the rough.
To her, the West Side is a tight-knit, diverse community of people, many of whom have called the neighborhood their home for generations. It’s a place of culture, beauty, and potential.
But she admits the neighborhood is not without its problems. Campbell describes “scenes of public drunkenness and disarray,” which she says includes naked individuals and public defecation that seems to plague certain parts of the West Side.
