Re: The South Bronx of the 1980's

True, it's just some areas (most notably where the CBE went through) fared much worse than others. Moses simply didn't care that what he did virtually completely wrecked the South Bronx to where by the late 1970s we had Howard Cosell utter the infamous words "Ladies and Gentleman, The Bronx Is Burning" ("The Bronx Is Burning" actually became the title of an ESPN mini-series in 2007 that centered around the 1977 Yankees that included actual footage of some of the '77 season, including the World Series).

Of course, Moses could not have anticipated a drug culture and other things that would hit by the mid-to-late 1960s that also would cause many of the problems the Bronx would have, nor of course could people in the 1940s seen what they did then would cause the problems 20-30 years later that led to much of the problems parts of New York have never completely recovered from in some cases.
