There are 11 NYC Housing developements in SI. The ones on the North Shore... Richmond Terrace, Jersey St, etc, are the worst. I think the Todt Hill & South Beach ones are the better ones.

I live 5 blocks from the West Brighton Houses. I have seen worse but they are pretty bad. The Stapleton ones are very, very bad as is the surrounding neighborhood. St. George is very bad too.

There is a housing project on Richmond Hill Rd... would that be the Todt Hill one? They don't look too bad.

The waiting list for a NYCHA unit can be years and years, and I'm not sure you have much say in which complex you move into. My husband grew up in public housing in Queens and the waiting list to get in was 10+ years.

Staten Island has a special list tho. Often you can get into a NYCHA building very quickly. It requires a special application.

FYI, Markham Gardens is not "traditional" NYCHA property anymore. In the rebuilt Markham Gardens, more than half of the space went to Section 8 applicants while the remaining units went to residents who made between $40k to around mid $80k. It's a mixed income development, I guess...
