I'm guessing that over the years there have been a decent number of NYCHA residents that have been convicted for drug misuse. Do these people just go to prison? Would it be feasible for these people to be made to carry out community service instead? For example, they could do graffiti removal or litter picking which would benefit the community.

actually if they're convicted of a drug charge everybody in the apartment gets evicted and they're banned from being on NYCHA property. and you're not allowed to go on the roof.

In fact, if you do not live in the NYCHA public housing complex, and are found in OR around one (as in walking through), you can be arrested and fined for tresspassing. I know many people who have been arrested and fined. As if you needed a reason to stay out of the housing projects!

Depends I would say. I've been to couple of PJs, cuz I have friends living in there. The ones I visited I felt comfortable in. But I know there a few I would def avoid.

This past summer I interviewed in manhattan for a teaching job in elementary. I believe it was in Hamilton heights (It was right next to the bridge to Yankee stadium, if that helps). I drove my car since I was coming from another interview in the north Bronx. I called the school ahead of time and they told me to park next to the school. Little did I know, the parking lot I parked in was for the projects, lol. It was right smack next to the school. I got real afraid when I realized it was the projects that I parked in. I was more afraid my car would be towed away, but also a little afraid of getting damage to it. It was fine though.

What would you consider most of the apartments in the south Bronx? They aren't considered projects, but what are they? they're all low-income apartments, am I right? I work in the south Bronx by the 170th st stop by the 4. The parents tell me they sometimes see people on the roofs of apartment buildings running and shooting one another.

as long as its NYCHA its the projects. a lot of people make the mistake of calling a building "the projects" just because its for low-income people or it looks run-down. if its not NYCHA, then its not the projects.
