      At this point you may as well have this comment copied somewhere so every time one of these stories pops up you can just quickly paste it.

    The BHA needs to do a better job of screening applicants for public housing. And they should check the people staying in these apartments are actually on the damn lease. This isn’t the first time someone from out of town who up to no good has been found in the projects.

      Sorry you were bullied as a child and it continued into whatever you are, go find your safe place snowflake. Phyllis has a seat for you on her board of yuppies overseeing the community board

        It’s funny how once someone is backed into a corner they start raining denegrating comments. Sorry Bazz, read it and weep, the gentrification train is moving full-steam ahead whether you like it or not.

        • Bazz says

          I’ve never been backed into a corner snowflake. Make sure to keep your head down while walking past those filthy housing developments
