The colored people won't bother you if you don't stare.

Some of the kitchens in the London Terrace Gardens apartments aren't that bad. Guess those would be the renovated units. However the bathrooms still leave me cold. For Art Deco couldn't they have found some warmer colors? All that black and white tile while sanitary is just too chilling.

Chelsea Hotel has similar bathrooms IIRC. A college friend ended up there after been kicked out of NYU dorms. *LOL*

For those having never been, this is an example of terraced flats/townhouses in London.

Housing is selling off their parking lots for affordable housing. So in the future these brand new buildings will be squished between the public housing

The proximity of NYCHA homes in your Manhattan area may be a blessing. It may allow for less expensive supermarkets, bodegas, and other legal cal businesses that will make your life more affordable. Dont be such a snob.

You call living in the projects "being lucky?" Even if it is on the "riverside."
Maybe time will come that you will be lucky enough to live in the projects with a nice view.

Not everybody who is poor is "guilty" of it.

Are you really too lazy to walk 6 blocks?

A lot of the Mott Haven PJs stand out less, like the Betances Houses. I didn't even realize theh were PJs the first time I walked by. Of course there are also plenty of tower in the park developments as well.

I find it interesting that the neighborhood is majority Hispanic, yet the locals seem to pronounce "Betances" differently from the proper pronunciation in Spanish.

Yes, the grass is always greener, and greener, and greener.
Proof that the mods are racist.
