On the NYCHA website (http://gis.nyc.gov/nycha/im/NychaStart.do;jsessionid=36AE24D642E7F055DD7796ADE 1B5CD86? - broken link), you can search to see which projects are located in a specific borough.

It looks as though there's 23 developments in Queens.

every housing project is safe except for any in the rockaways, queensbridge, and south jamaica. ravenswood and astoria are borderline.

How are those? They can't be that bad considering they're in Forest Hills?
