Is your experience in The Bronx limited to 5 blocks in Mott Haven?
To be honest, the Bronx south of the CBE is littered with Housing projects. If you're in Claremont Village, then you literally are sorrounded by housing projects.

Yeah there quite a few housing projects depending on where you are. But I didn't feel like it dominated the whole neighborhood in any Bronx neighborhood I've been in so far.

Parts of the Bronx are in the early stages of gentrification, but overall it is not visibly gentrifying. I think the extent of it is the nicely decorated Mexican restaurants in Mott Haven.

The Largest ghetto in NYC believe it or not is..........Chinatown. It is unhealthy, housing stock old and has a host of other problems you will not read about. I know because I lived there AND work in public/urban health. That said....I agree with other posters....several neighborhoods in the Bronx (probably has the most), East New York, Brownsville...and I would through in East Harlem too. Tons of projects...

Housing stock is old in most of the city, lol

It's funny reading CD posts from other cities that state a preference for newer construction (like built in the last 30 years) , when most people here don't even think about that and would gladly live in an apartment built in 1910 if it was a good deal.

The Bronx up towards East 180 (2/5) and Parkchester (6) is definitely seeing some gentrification.

Year in and year out, Lower Central Harlem and Upper East Harlem have crapped ALL over East NY and Brownsville (last couple of years Bville has gotten really soft) in per capita crime stats. Yes, you are much more likely to be a victim of crime in Harlem than in North-East Brooklyn.

Only Eastern Bed-stuy churns out insanely high per capita crime stats on the level of Harlem and the South Bronx. That is the worst hood in Brooklyn by far.

My respects to what Brownsville was a couple of years ago. It was legitimately top 3. Not any more, and hasn't been what it used to be (which is a good thing).
Brownsville had few murders early this year but lots of murder last year; small areas have lots of random short-term variation. Average since January 2015 and the 73rd precinct had a slightly higher murder rate than the 40th. Robbery rate was 25% higher in the 40th though

Some people even prefer it. Has unique characteristics and their interiors are not quite so cookie cutter. Hence the charm.

I prefer older construction myself, those tenements you see in the LES are iconic in my opinion

The whole of NYC IS "GHETTO" cause it's filthy and we're packed in like rats. What you really want to say is where are is the highest concentration of blacks and poor minorities. Just stop with the facade.
