Re: The South Bronx of the 1980's

It was not always the landlords that burned them down, although of course they often did. Tenants also burned buildings down, and abandoned buildings were often set on fire by drug dealers. It was a meltdown on ALL levels.

As for the Cross Bronx, Moses didn't kill NYC, ENY, Bed-Stuy, Bushwick, Brownsville also all fell without a "Cross Bronx Expressway", just like the Bronx did, and there were plenty of areas that had expressways put through that remained strong, for example, the Gowanas, Whitestone, Maspeth, and plenty more.
