The grounds are well kept. Apts are spacious. The entire development got renovated not too long ago. SAS will be built on 106 with SBS already on site

I mean it’s exactly the same as the projects apartment size-wise just more working families in there and less very low-income people. It’s not like 1199 Plaza across the street that has actually state of the art nice apartments. Franklin Plaza was literally designated to be public housing and last minute was switched to Mitchell lama. I’ve seen apartments in there and they are like in any regular project. The grounds are not bad for a Harlem project though. Also weirdly there’s a big Asian enclave in there for some reason

It is a very nice community...residents have a strong sense of pride and community. It is safe, decent and clean.

1199 is rundown. Their grounds need to be upgraded. Stat. Theyíre projects with terraces too, letís not get it twisted. The Asians are concentrated to what they call the ďfirst sideĒ (because it was constructed first) between 2nd & 3rd

I've been in 1199 once, I don't know if it was just a bad day or not, but the common areas were much dirtier than they should be, floors look like they weren't mopped, wrappers in the hallway, tissues on the floor

I've never been actually inside an apartment in Franklin Plaza, but I've been to a few parties in one of the community rooms there, and I walked through the complex plenty of times, it seems cool

Do a search for Franklin Plaza on this board and you'll find more information.

Originally they were supposed to be a part of NYCHA as the Benjamin Franklin Houses. The lobbies of the buildings look just like how the lobbies in the projects look.

Can it be 5 to 10 years?
