The long term master plan is to slowly squeeze all the non working or marginally employed poor people out of the city entirely.They are being pushed( sorry,encouraged) to move to smaller cities and less expensive parts of the region.... like up the Hudson and into Pennsylvania.
Section 8 has been cut off almost entirely and the old projects and all new government sponsored housing will be geared towards working/middle class.
The process has been underway for a while already.
Newburgh is a good example of what the future holds:http://liveshots.blogs.foxnews.com/2...n-newburgh-ny/

Excellent point. That has actually been my biggest fear for the future of the Bronx and where it's headed...taking in ex-Harlem and Washington Hieghts residents who are mainly ghetto low-lives who were probably evicted and deemed "undesirable" are being dumped and added to the Bronx population which will contribute and add to the "ghettoness" of the Bronx that us Bronx advocates are fighting to get rid of.

It totally defeats the purpose and makes it that much harder to clean up Bronx neighborhoods from trashy residents if you're having a steady stream of undesirable ghetto low-lives migrating to the Bronx because Harlem and Washington Height has become too expensive to live in.

Bronx Landlords should be reading this and take notice because if this trend continues, your "so-so" neighborhood where your building may be located at may transform into the next "hood" if Bronx landlords keep allowing the "rejects" from other places to move into the neighborhood and corrupt it.

Not every poor person is a gun-toting gangsta.

But they *are* undesirable to their gainfully employed neighbors. And what's the point of trying to revive the Bronx? The poor have to go somewhere. The Bronx is the only option.

As for the housing projects in Manhattan, they should be auctioned off, one by one. The money thus raised could be used by NYCHA to construct far more housing in the cheaper parts of the city. Hopefully, the entirety of Manhattan will one day be gentrified.

That would be a good idea.
Sell the Manhattan housing projects and use the money to build new housing projects elsewhere..

That's probably what they what they'll do eventually. If they were to do it I say build one massive housing project in some park on Staten Island.
In fact I say destroy every single housing development in NYC and just dump it in some park in Staten Island.
lmaooo what the hell i worked in the lower east side last year. where in the world did you get your info from? those houses are still their and going to be their for a while.

i dont know whats wrong with these posters but in my opinion those housing projects can stay.

they are apart of the ny look and i agree that they stay as long as they want to.

why are people who dont live in them so worried about them anyway?

wow stop beleiving what you read. those plans of 125th are not a automatic yes. there have been many debates on it. and also when you look at bloomberg it looks as if he forgot about the 125th business he was trying to do anyway.
