Look at Jamaica, the streets immediately surrounding the post office ain't all that either, I almost got robbed around there once as a teen
The City has encouraged investors to clean up private buildings, and it has worked spectacularly in many areas.

But yes, there's lots of potential but you are not going to push those people out. Tons of supportive housing down there, etc.
Nor should you push those people out. They have to live somewhere.

Improving this area would be improving those people and removing the barriers that prevent them from having socioeconomic mobility.

All those 80/20s were a way for luxury housing developers to get taxpayer money while building little affordable housing.

You need to pay more attention to politics dude. I should not have had to supply a link for very common and very public knowledge.

This is not an example of the city enticing existing building owners to "clean up" their buildings.

I'm telling you you did not go to school.

I have the credentials to prove it dude. Don't even think you can come for me. And I'm not stuck in glorified housing projects like you. Bitter much?

Oh those tax incentives do indeed "clean" up buildings, they play a huge part in gentrifying the lower class out of the entire neighborhoods. Far fewer more people, and the neighborhoods are completely cleaned up. I've witnessed this first hand. But I guess that's hard to see if you never lived outside the hood.

It's pretty easy to verify my Cornell AND Columbia degree. You just type in my real name on Cornell's website, and it will say I'm an alumnus. Columbia and Cornell both give permanent e-mail addresses to alumni, and yes, I have my permanent e-mail addressed from both.

My teaching credentials are verifiable online too my dude.

But yeah, my background is easily verifiable.

I'm sorry you couldn't do better in life than this.

I'll post all of that online if you require that of everyone here, including yourself and the other MOD. Otherwise, no.
