You're right, I'm wrong. All of those neighborhoods faced as much, if not more, blight than Bushwick/Bed-Stuy ever did. Bushwick and Bed-Stuy could never of been as bad as Park Slope or Fort Greene used to be. Same for SoHo and LIC, even though they were primarily industrial with such a small residential population, were so much worse.

Plus, the OP was only going back 10 years.

if theyre just hanging out on the stoop....no fighting or shooting or anything like that i dnt see wtf is wrong with that.......and this is another reason y ppl dnt like these condescending yuppies and hipsters........cnt have a house party (even if its peaceful), god FORBID ppl do a favorite pastime tradition like have a block party, esp if theres no gluten free vegan food involved......hangin on the stoop jus kickin it and the block parties little girls playing double dutch was part of what gave NYC the soul and flavor that you yuppies and hipsters killed and erased.....smdh.......

I know nothing about this city......a lot can change in 7 years, especially when the city and state pump funds into it.

"Ghetto people" do not work. Educate yourself carefully about the distinction between "ghetto," a set of cultural choices and allegiances where gainful unemployment is an assumption, and the working poor.

The working poor are seldom "ghetto."

When you can provide some type of information, whether statistical or qualitative, or anything other than just saying so, I'll stop. Until then your nothing but a little *****.

When you resort to taunts, that's when you know you've lost the argument... I don't need to provide jack**** for you... the info is widely available for anyone with half a brain... Additionally, born and bred New Yorkers know your exaggeration of Bushwick/Bed-stuy seeing the most change out of any area in the entire city is completely ludicrous... It truly does speak to your lack of knowledge of this city...

Thank you, I totally agree with you on this and I hate arguing with Gdale, his points makes no sense.

Much of the working poor is just trying to get by.

I have been saying this for a while now that Gdale lacks information about the city, telling me about how Bushwick and Bedstuy changed so much, only a small tiny section of Bedstuy near Pratt that has changed and gets all the rave but once you travel more east into Bedstuy it turns depressing. This guy is ill informed about NYC.

Both of you will receive rep points from me for pointing out this heretic.
