Re: The South Bronx of the 1980's

A damage area doesn't necessary have to have burnt out building and crime infestation. It could be areas that became empty, because the highway ran all the businesses away. I think of the area surrounding the Bruckner Expressway is a good example of this. If you notice, the area surrounding the expressway seem very empty. If it wasn't for the subway, it would be worse. Also, the area on the other side of the expressway doesn't seem to be connected to anything. It is a disaster if you ask me.

Highways are very hard to cross and they pollute the surrounding areas. The pollution can be in the form of carbon-monoxide or noise. The only businesses that seem to do well around a highway is a gas station and Mechanic shops. But they are not good places to live.

The area surround a highway is dirty and grimy. It is not a friendly place at night.

At some point, I hope they dismantle the Bruckner Expressway. It is an eye soar to the area surrounding it. It disassociates the area that surround it. It discourages development, while walls people in.
