First of all, what's the point of this thread?

Second of all, how did the Marble Hill Houses manage to get onto that list? There are a ton of projects that are worse than those.

Take out Marcy and Marble Hill..and take out one Far rock project. Polo Grounds are worse than Harlem RiverN even though it's the same area. You definitely need to add Andrew Jackson or Melrose. I heard cypress hills in the east was bad, and a bunch of brownsville projects could be on there (van dyke, browsnville etc)

No you didn't have a brain fart... you just have no idea what you're talking about and are looking to get the answers through city-data members so you can brag to the boys in the hood about how you know which hood gets down... In other words, a poser... Hate to call you out, but it's pretty easy to tell and people continue to feed your threads for some reason... What gave it away to me was the fact that you put Tilden and didn't put Langston Hughes... You were obviously just going on what people talk about on here throughout city-data and formed your list...

LOL, I am a Greek man from Bath Beach, I know absolutely ZERO about projects, I don't know anyone that lives in them, I have no interest in them, I would not live near them, I don't give a crap about them.

Hey! With all due respect, why do you always initiate these kinds of threads? What's the point of saying these things? It's just negativity all the time. And it's ironic that your name is South Jamaica Queens Boy. Is that where you're from? I'm confused.

hmm, interesting. I'm not familiar with the street cred thing (so, please bear with me). So, can you explain why this would be valuable information for someone posting this?

If he's accurately knowledgeable about which projects are the worst, it'll show that he's been around and still is alive or has connections so in the insanely idiotic world of gang-banging, he has streetcred. Difference between nowadays and back then, people actually lived these things, now guys like him look it up online and pretend they know about that life... To quote the hood cats... ***** You wasn't with me shooting in the gym... Now please, enough with these threads...
