    Highbridge is not my cup of tea, I don't like that neighborhood. I imagined it's been a little more neglected.

    I remember growing up in University Heights, there was one huge vacant lot across the street from me, with another half as big across the street. The majority of the block was vacant land. In the mid 90's they built 2 schools on the huge lot (tells you how big it was) and used the one across the street as a parking spot, and a playground. The remaining lot was made into a church but it has since been abandoned. Also down the block they built a woman's shelter on one such lot. People only say that the southern Bronx has seen new projects but it's false. The whole Bronx has been paid attention to.

    Yeah very true. You should see what they did to Morris Heights. Up to about 4 years ago, you had like 5 big vacant lots on the main thoroughfare, University ave, on just 4 blocks , W 174th to Tremont ave. You also had boarded up buildings on W 174th, I am talking about straight abandoned shells. Fast foward to 2012, you only have 2 remaining lots, and they have built private homes and huge Coops there while renovating the 2 abandoned buildings. It looks so much better. Alot was put into that area.

    I've witnessed it myself. Honestly some parts of West Side still look like crap around Anderson Avenue and those long steps. Shakespeare, Marmion, Inwood, Odgen...all those blocks look halfway beat up

    Yeah I watched the video. I was only 3 or 4 years old when I used to go up there so I dont remember if I was scared. I just remember a lot of graffiti and trash in vacant lots. That Citibank at the end is still on Creston and Fordham Rd, that I remember.

    I don't remember the argument but I don't think I ever understated how bad West Side was. I used to go there as a kid in the 80s. Had fam in Sedgwick PJs.

    Hey SuperMario,

    Nah. He hasn't a freaking clue. Right now, Cuba is about 75 percent black/mulatto. Most "true" white Cubans got out after Fidel took over and took over a lot of private wealth. That's why there are so many white Cubans in Miami.
