if nyc were to ever tear down their housing projects to the extent of Atlanta we would have to make a new borough for all those people.

The title should have was in the place of is but from what I heard from all the old heads (25 and up lol) the projects that had national attention was Chi-town(Cabrini Green, Robert Taylor etc.) and A-town(Bankhead, Techwood etc.) for notoriety along with New Orleans... other than that everything else had regional or local notoriety

How do you talk about big city projects and NOT mention San Francisco? Valencia Gardens (demolished), Geneva Towers (demolished), Double Rock, Alamany, Sunnydale, Oakdale, 200 Randolph, etc... the majority of these are still standing and as ****ty as ever.

I've really got to disagree with this. The only reason why Housing Projects have done so well in NYC, and in Yonkers and Mount Vernon is because a HUGE population of NYC is low income. So Housing projects have done VERY well for poor/ low income familes. Now NYC maintaining it is mad BS.
Most of the PJ's over here are mad grimy and dumd violent. If NYC didn't have such a huge low income pop we wouldn't have as many housing projects as we do now. So cities that don't have as many PJs are doing much better off then we are. I'm not even gunna lie if i wasn't living dude jay over here in Clinton Hill, i'd be living over in Projects over here So if you ask me NY wins this.

Do any true housing projects (ala HUD) even exist anymore? In Minneapolis, I believe there were twenty something HUD housing projects and ALL of them were torn down in the 1990's. Chicago also. I'm not sure what is still allowable anymore, and what is may not be the HUD nightmare housing like Cabrini Green or Stateway Gardens.

I've heard of Bankhead but only in songs. Not to the level that you hear of with Chicago and New Orleans projects. Now Chicago yes and most of the highrise projects are being torn down. New Orleans as well. For notoriety, I would say Chicago, New York, and New Orleans. Washington DC? Nah.
