there was only one reason Bushwick,BED STY,ENY,Williamaburg,and BROWNSVILLE went down hill during those years..
Actually several reasons..but the one that stood out the most was blacklisting the whole North Brooklyn by banks..while the city stood by and did nothing.

It was nothing more that racial profiling..racial prejudice mixed with economize depression felt by the people living there.
The city as a whole was suffering..but it was even more so in the so called depressed nabs..where the blight was pocket marked by the random abandonment of houses homes tenements stores..random fires set by landlords to collect insurance money..and the summer of 1977.
