gravesend can be bad, while not the worst in the system it isn't very pleasant

"Not that bad" is a relative term. Compared to the rest of the crap in the city, no, the nostrand houses arent that bad. but $hit is $hit even if you put a pretty red ribbon on it

Seriously tho. i live near the PJs over there, my fiancee is from there and her family still lives there. There are still a few white people that live there, and the pjs themselves are surrounded by pretty decent housing and building stock, which keeps most of the crap centralized inside the projects.

There are drugs. People get shot/raped/killed/mugged/etc etc etc but not to the degree that they do in the other projects. The elevators smell like pee all day. theres rats n roaches. The grounds are relatively clean and well kept. Theres a few new playgrounds and BBall courts.

Sheepshead bay highschool and Shellbank junior high are literally right across the street. they arent as bad as they should be considering the location.

I have an uncle living there. He's been there for more than 10 years and he said it's not bad once you get used to it. The area around it is pretty nice. Mostly middle class Italian, Russian, etc. The houses itself has a mixture but seem mostly African Americans. It does not feel as bad the Marlboro Houses but you know you are in the projects with young hang outs standing outside the apartments still have to be careful.
