    There goes the neighborhood.

  2. 10 stories here, 10 stories there. What a time to be alive!

  3. This affordable housing projects are just screwing up the decent neighborhood, with the unwelcome crowd that comes along with it. e.g guys hanging out in front of the building at all time. selling drugs, gambling.

    I was a big supportive of this kinds of developments, but no longer. They seem to be mini housing projects. The city needs better regulations for this developments.

    I’m in need of housing. I’m one of the working homeless.. Help Please..

  5. Hop the Bx15 down 3rd to the hub for the 2,5 trains and the hub has an elevator. Yeah..but watch out for the gunfire & TOO many school buses & kids across the street to deal with on the daily not to mention its a food desert. You can use Associated that’s smaller than a discount store or food bazaar that takes 70% of your SNAP for 3 bags of groceries. Please build activists in your facilities to keep the recovering addicts from begging on the street for $.50. We’ve got enough of that in this area.
