My, My don`t we paint with a broad brush. Normal, law abiding citizens still lived on those mean streets back then too. I would even venture to say that the majority of folks living in those areas were, every-work-a-day-people.

Edwards should be along sometime tonight to further educate you. For the purpose of disclosure( He and I grew up in the same areas in Bklyn. In the same era and a Project building apart)

To keep somewhat on topic, The Myrtle Ave. El and the 3rd Ave. should have never been torn down, because The City had no intentions of replacing them with anything adequate, regardless of the residents. One can even make a case for the Culver shuttle also. It should have remained for operational flexibility.

Just my two cents.
