Okay? Like what?

I know there's the Amsterdam houses along Amsterdam in the 60s. As well as Chelsea houses somewhere in the 30s. Other than that, most everything not in the LES or Harlem is Mitchell-Lhama. Besides, NYCHA is not taking on anymore people as the waiting list is already like 20 applicants to an apartment and growing.

All developments in Manhattan outside LES/Harlem/WH:

Fredrick Douglas PJ's. (Upper West Side)

Holmes PJs. (northeastern edge of the Upper East Side)

Confucius Plaza (Chinatown)

Fulton PJ's (Meatpacking district I guess you can call it)

Chelsea PJ's (Chelsea/West Midtown)

344 East 28th Street PJ's (A single building on the East Side)

That's all I can think of. The funny thing is they all suck even outside the LES/Harlem. Some kid got popped in Holmes PJ's a few months ago, I belive that was the only homicide on the Upper East Side this year. Complex is no stranger to crime, not by a longshot. Fredrick Douglas PJ's is the center of the drug trade on the Upper West Side. The Fulton and Chelsea PJ's are also pretty shady. A lot of Times Squares criminals reside in those complexes.
Confucius Plaza is poor and slummy.

i'll post more later. I think I missed like 2.

There's also Harborview Terrace on West 56th bet. 10th and 11th Avenues and a senior building on East 70th and 1st Ave.

I think Confucius Plaza is actually Mitchell Lama.

Huge swathes of the Lower East Side are NYCHA. Rutgers, Alfred Smith, Baruch, Gompers, Hernandez, Laguardia, and Vladeck to name a few. The area starting from 1 Police Plaza on Madison Street going all the way to the FDR is almost all housing projects facing the river as is the area north of Delancey by the Williamsburg bridge.

I grew up in this area. The area is mostly Black and Caribbean Hispanic with some Chinese and West Indians living inside.

What exactly is your question?

Working at Amsterdam was safe.
I found it disconnected from the rest of the city.
Unusually quiet. Not too much trouble except
for noisy school kids a few blocks away.

I’ve only passed through the neighborhood and it seems pretty calm to me. It’s not a poor neighborhood, so most of the less disagreeable aspects of living in Harlem aren’t there. There’s a lot students because Baruch is nearby, and I’d guess some spillover of whatever you hear from Bellevue, over on 1st Ave., but it still strikes me as a pretty chill slice of the city. But I don’t know anything about the building or the apartments in it.

Added bonus: the public elementary and middle schools over there — PS 281 and IS 104 — are supposed to be pretty good, with diverse student bodies. So your daughter may do well.

Much of the Lower East Side historically was filled with tenements and other "unhealthy" housing, well that's what well off whites called it.

As such vast swaths of LES were ripe for Robert Moses and Urban Renewal slum clearance projects. Ditto for Lincoln Square area which gave NYC Lincoln Center but also several NYCHA housing projects.

Large parts of UWS from about 59th street up to 96th were declared "blighted" and made urban renewal districts. This is why you have NYCHA projects on CPW and blocks going west towards Columbus and Amsterdam. OTOH UES had virtually nil "urban renewal" or "slum clearance" which is why you don't see public housing on Fifth avenue or anywhere else going east until you get well into Yorkville (past Second) in any large amount. Yes, once you get above 86th you see some projects but they are closer to 96th and above.
