To correct any misunderstandings I pointed out that north Brooklyn has the same pop. as the entire Bronx. So if your agenda was to hype BK up, then I had to bring you back down. You know what you meant when you wrote that statement. Let's be fair here.

Anyways I know Brooklyn has arguably the worst hoods in the city. I never stated otherwise. All I say is that Bronx hoods are also in contention.
a man, all i was doing was continuing what you started, but you forgot that with your ongoing feelings angers about the bk vs. bx debates. I pointed out that bx has more total crime,so, you know, relax. Please be calm, i don't want you tossing and turning at night about some guy on the internet claiming that north bk is worst that bx.

I am still not clear why the crime rates in these particular Brooklyn areas are above and beyond everyone else..and seem to be getting worse not better. On a seperate note, I was with a girl from East New York this weekend, and she was really not like a human being, but a caricature of what you would expect from someone in ENY. She wore a pink jumpsuit and she was obese, she spoke about 10x more ghetto than Little Kim (the 1994 little Kim, not the Dancing With the Stars one), and she talked about all the time she spent on the floor of her apt hiding from gunshots flying everywhere on her block/neighborhood.

Her accent was even rough for me to listen to, and it was clearly different than the Southern Bronx/Bronx in general. It sounds like these parts of BK have an entire culture in and of themselves, which is even more hood than every other hood. Am I way off base here? I just dunno what is going on out there or why the crime is spiraling there vs everywhere else.

I been saying that for the longest time, East NY and Brownsville is a jungle. Not everybody there talks like that but I been to Detroit, Philly, and Chicago and East NY in itself can match with all of them. I left there for a reason and I would never move back. When I visit, I make sure I go from car to building and vice versa cause that place is a mess. I honestly dont know why its still like that but things never change for some reason over there.

no problem. it was tough, but i made it.

anyway, @sobro yo some girls are just really ghetto. and you'll find them around. i usually see people like that in the hoods we normally know as bad. the strongest brooklyn accent ive heard yet was from brownsville. Crown heights has more carribean accents.

@ overdose I really think its because not even immigrants are moving into the area. The only people living there is the poor Black and Hispanic people that have lived there for generations and continue breeding poverty and crime. No parent or one parent and beyond broke so the kid rebels, joins a gang, impregnates a girl, leaves her to fend for herself and now the cycle has once again continued and in that area it is really hard to stay away from it because it is all over the place. You have to hide in your homes or hang out somewhere else cause there is nothing good about those neighborhoods of EAst NY and Brownsville. It may not look as bad as it did in the 80s and 90s but the ghettoness and crime is still there. They can build and make 3 apartment houses in the former vacant lots and try to put birthday candles on crap but at the end of the day its still gonna be crap and some serious work needs to be put into those two neighborhoods for them to ever change.

The vast majority of residents, however, are not involved in illicit activities, realize that crime is still occurring, but are able to live generally safely and go about their lives by taking simple precautions and using basic common sense (hanging out a the bodega at 3am with the homies is not the best idea, no matter how friendly/chill they are).
I notice very few crackheads or as I used to call them walking zombies on the street. Has the decline in crack use lowered the crime rate?

actually, I know some immigrants that live in East New York. I can't say much for brownsville but East NY is pretty big. I usually hear the worst stories from around the pink houses area. Basically, I would say East NY has a chance at changing, but brownsville would need alot of work.its not like they were always the worst. Crown Heights was worse than Brownsville in 1990.

Yeah exactly. The worst neighborhood in Brooklyn back during the crack era was Bushwick.

Brownsville and East NY just happen to stay more or less status quo.
