Re: The South Bronx of the 1980's

I think the elevated nature of the Bruckner Expressway in the South Bronx makes it especially unattractive to live around. Exhaust fumes (some from traffic on the Boulevard below) get trapped under the structure, making it unpleasant and unhealthy to linger around. The combination of the elevated expressway, the Boulevard below, and the railroad line alongside make an almost impassable barrier that can only be crossed at a few points. The LIE is a mostly surface highway with fairly frequent overpasses, so the atmosphere (literal and figurative) around it is quite different.
