Whatever happened back in a days stays back in a days. I just wanted to illustrate that the Bronx was changed for worse by the population change. Are you denying that?
See those quotation marks around "mafiosi" in my previous post. I put them to show that some people tend to view all Italians as part of the organized crime. In the mean time vast majority of them were hardworking middle-class people. But when those people were forced out by street crime and section 8, what remained was the bottom of the barrel of NYC. And that's how it stays.
Let's welcom the middle class back, and reclaim the Bronx!

Well that's a rather simplistic way of looking at it. There were several factors contributing to the decline of the Bronx. I'm a little tired of the "I think colored folks moved in and things went to hell but I'm gonna say it in an indirect way threads." It's been beaten to death on this forum already. batjka just move to Staten Island or Jersey already.

Agreed..this guy just keeps digging himself into a deeper hole and has lost all credibility on this forum...blame the colored folks..they ruin everything they touch! Great observation Batjka...the same can be said for the tens of thousands of Albanians that have swarmed Italy. I dunno why he is even on this board...it was good until he showed up.

NooYowker..please dont list the same old factors...if Batja cares enough he can find out himself. His mind is already made up..let him move to NJ and the Bronx will be much happier.

i gave up on the guy a few pages ago. You can pour an ocean into a baket and in the end it will still be empty. Your energy will be better served whistling to a squirrel in the park!

in his mind colored = TROUBLE.

even after I showed him videos of Bronx Albo members flashing guns etc he said "he didn't believe.... it is as bad as the video"

when presented with CONCRETE EVIDENCE, this guy resorts to his "beliefs". Do you believe in the tooth fairy as well?
