I live by pattern projects and heard shooting 31 times last summer. The problem with NYC is that there are projects around every area close to the city.

Yea it's true but I believe it also makes NYC what it is.... I believe it gives the city a balance and a limit to gentrification... If it weren't then whole city would be the village

Which leads into the next quote...

Pretty much.

Very true because all the forums here that talk about the lotteries and waiting list seem to indicate that NYCHA does at least some type of background check..but like you said the scariest criminals are the young and dumb in the 17 year old and below age group, they can literally get away with more than an adult and know this and are very reckless.
