This. Some street smarts will take you a long way.

I dunno what you just said but there is no doubt that if you associate with thugs and that lifestyle, nothing good will come of it. And your comment probably supports that. That has less to do with the South Bronx and more to do with who you associate with. Keep your nose clean, don't hang out with the homies in the corner at 3am, stay out of the hallways of the housing projects, the thugs are not your friend no matter how many times they say "sup" to you. And you will be just fine.

Ha I know a similar story some years back about a Bronxite who was up in Bushwick Brooklyn bosting up about the Bronx and he got shot through the neck but managed to survive. Your brother comes from a rough area and goes to a party in another rough area to boost about where he from is a cause for trouble. I may live in the Hood but I dont associate with hood like elements, its either a quick trip to up river or a quick trip 6 feet under, for many of these people its no escape. This goes for any area of NYC, and even if your a wannabe thug in middle class areas I wont associate with these elements. Sorry for your brother though. I remember some kid getting shot at some party on morris avenue in the bronx a couple of years back. Im 6 2 and weight 270 pounds niether cop for liablity issues dont stop or frisk me, search my bag or thugs, gangsters, wannabes, bloods and trinitarios dont mess with me. Hang with hood like element your looking for trouble. Sorry about your bro.

This happened around the corner from where I live. Im kind of shocked and and dissapointed about this ghetto savagery that still presists. I used shop at this bodega but since these durka durks did not prevent the assilants from attacking thier attended victim, the victim is now scared for life. This could have been someones sister. Some good people in the south bronx but once you mix with the hood mentality its either up the river or six feet under. A good thing I dont know any of these women in the video.

Sad. They cut the girls face and scar her for life. Here is a photo of one of the criminals... Hope they get caught soon.

Is the assailant hitting only with fists or slashing the victim with something sharp over and over again?

If slashing the poor victim has no face left. This is so vicious.

Looks like she is indeed slashing when I watched the video more carefully.

I just watched the NYPD most wanted and that f*****g Sanders is not even on the list. And there has been kids suspected of minor theft on that list! Hope she's caught.

This is unfortunate...but this is not a common occurence although many would have you believe it. It used to happen more frequently however. Crime happens...welcome to NYC, but we have become a far less violent city, and crime is down substantially even in the infamous areas like the Southern Bronx.

I can say that in my experience street violence and attacks are rare, but there are always kids who have nothing to do and look for trouble, and there are the usual "beefs" with rival buildings/blocks/schools/etc. Such is life and will always happen..no matter where you go.

I work at 149th & 3rd and I wouldn't call it dangerous. I walk around and (knock wood) nothing has happened to me. I'm cautious, though because anything can happen anywhere. Having been all around the city, I'd have to say that this is the most depressing area I have seen. It's like the revitalization (aside from a significant decrease in serious crime) did not happen her. It's not pretty and the people look broken and sick. It's more sad than anything else.

I will admit that the HUb shopping district feels like it is stuck in 1980..alot of the buildings are not in the best condition and nobody looks happy or even smiles. They have been working on improving things, and some buildings have been rehabbed, new medians, planters, bike lanes, historic lamp posts, street plantings, etc...but it still needs a lot of work.
