Re: The South Bronx of the 1980's

Actually, it was CoOp City that was more responsible for the demise than much else. CBE merely was the other shoe dropping. When the Concourse emptied out back in the early 70's, the north-south avenues on either side of it changed drastically as well. With the wealthier residents moving out, lots of stores closed. When the Concourse died, that started the trend even before the drugs made sections unlivable. By the time the CBE cut the Bronx in half, that was the end of it. Sorry, I grew up there, got to see it up close and personal.

Fortunately, it's coming back slowly now.
