"Another Low Income Neighborhood"

This is a South Bronx neighborhood filled with public housing projects and a good deal of subsidized attached homes. Many of the former tenement units that stood in this neighborhood were destroyed by arson that took place in the sixties and seventies and then torn down by the city. This is a neighborhood that also houses a “detention center,” for juveniles - always a good sign. This neighborhood is hanging in, though, as it slowly begins to rebuild tenement buildings and sort them out for low-income residents. Obviously this is not a striking place to live or visit – it’s the sort of neighborhood that one goes to only if they have to.
