queens - edgemere
brooklyn - brownsville, red hook
staten island - stapelton or west brighton
bronx - soundview, edenwald, mott haven
manhattan - st. nick, drew hamilton, polo grounds

these are all my opinion, not based on statistics.

I read in Wikipedia that an Ikea was opening in Red Hook. Did that go through? If there's an IKEA in the neighborhood, does this indicate a trend towards gentrification? How rough is Red Hook right now?

All comments are appreciated.

red hook is experiencing gentrification only along columbia street.....the projects are a bit further south. check it out on a map. then you'll understand why.

the bridge is bad too but i wouldnt say its the worst in queens. i think its safe to say that almost every housing project in the rockaways is worse than queensbridge. and thats edgemere arverne hammels and redfern. 2 are right across the street from each other (edgemere and arverne). after edgemere i would have to say that 40 is second. 40 is 40 projects (south jamaica houses), they call it 40 cause of p.s. 40 its right across the street. i believe that why they call it 40 anyway that makes the most sense to me.

true: Rockaway is prolly bad. I can't imagine! But what I see of the Farrugut Houses is not a happy site, in Dumbo, tho i am sure it is not the worst.
I read something about the "Slo Bomb" in Harlem, it is supposed to be bad. Ask housing cops they will tell you..

My fiance taught at Far Rockaway HS. He told me about the projects sometimes. I think there's 3 of them near the HS there. He heard from many teachers that if someone is white and driving through the area at night, not to stop at any red lights because of the bullets coming at you. I don't know if that's an exaggeration though.
