c'mon desi,huh ?
""My next door neighbor now pays over $1000 a month $1100 I thik now, but its going up again. She currently works three hard blue collar jobs to make ends meet, and has a lot of medical issues that cost her dearly. She makes to much for Medicaid. You call her a freeloader? Shame on you. The projects keep her alive.""

why the hell would anybody be working 3 jobs for the priviledge of living in the pJs ?
while up,down and sideways are tenants paying ziP,nada,section 8 etc ?

I know about it...A couple of my friends live there. It's part of NYCHA the only difference is that the tenants have to pay for electricity..It's really nice and clean.


This message is for the person that asked about the development on 154 W. 84TH ST

I live in Washington House on 97 3rd Ave. It's really quite over here. My building is really clean and you don't see people hanging out all night.

Projects were created to keep the minorities in a rut. The ghetto was created. Hitler did it to the Jews and in a less volitile way our government did it to us. I hate the Projects, not because of the ppl (they were beaten down generation after generation, though that isnt an excuse. but really if you settle for welfare and pjs then i feel sorry for you) but because of the way 1- ppl are seen, and 2- the disgusting living conditions.

im no activist.. luckily I have section 8 so it helps me a single mother of 3 be able to keep my kids out of projects and in some cases really nice places to live. and the money I save on rent in nyc I can afford to help my kids better themselves with things like dance classes, and sylvan because the DOE is just as bad as the projects.

I think the two guys arguing should both brush those chips off your shoulders because bettering a community starts with unity not division.

Does anyone know of the NYCHA apartments in the lower side of Manhattan. They look like town homes and seem very nice. What is the Location and the name of it? Also, is it safe as I am a single female. Thanks.

p.s. I am also open to hear about others that have the same quality.

Wise Houses as far as I know is now Section 8 If so that would be out, I would never switch to a voucher. Fulton Houses nice area, not many trees, so I guess It would be good for location, but certainly has A LOT of concrete I'll still put it on my list though.

So far you guys have been very informative about the NYCHA buildings, there are so many, it is a lifesaver to have you guys that actually know certain developments.
Why wouldn't you ever want a Section 8 voucher?

Just curious...
