Amelia Murphy Writing the Essay Scene 1 Essay 2 3/09/08 ~ I did my scene and reflection in the same thing  My one square mile town has a beautiful façade. Exquisite houses line the streets while  picture perfect housewives sip on Starbucks, pondering the life altering question on how fit  palates and tennis on the same schedule. White picket fences would be too ordinary. Why put  up a staple suburban fixture when you could pay five times more for a hand done stonewall?  No one moves to Bronxville to be ordinary. In the bakery of life Bronxville is crème brule,  wetting your appetite ever so slightly, tricking your taste buds into believing that ten dollars  would be worth it’s tasteless sensation.  As one could guess, growing up in there would not be  so easy. It has its perks; the small town atmosphere lends to a cohesive knowledge o f  everyone’s background. Population dances below 4,000 as stock brokers and their wives decide  which million dollar house should be their next purchase.  At the age of twelve I could name  each owner o f the houses we passed on our short drive to the school building in the middle of  town.  It housed us for twelve years; one brick building was the institution that held Bronxville  together. It promised to someday to reward the residents for paying s such high property taxes.  When I was younger I did not understand. I went to school looking forward to my next day in  history class, oblivious to the stressed out High Schoolers planning their future. This was soon  to change.
