    The real sad part of these Incidents is the MANY GOOD PEOPLE WHO LIVE here and are hardworking, family, elderly ect have to be terrorized by the few LOWLIFES who either RESIDE there of hang out there wrecking havoc of the rest of the neighborhood ..Time for the B.H.A. to weed out these maggots.

    Absolutely time for a clean out… I live near what was always an elderly housing complex but now am told it is “public houseing.” by Bill McGonagle. THis is really not fair to the elderly .. noise , unwanted guests for extended stays, etc.
    WE, the neighbors, have complained but were told one person was being evicted.. 6 months later she is still there.

      You’re right Patty, time for a sweep on BHA properties. I have complained several times about the goings on at the same property. How many times are non BHA residents involved in criminal activity going to be found on these properties before something is done?

    The Foley apartments were for years ELDERLY ONLY…Now it’s a haven for PHONY social security DISABILITY losers.. who can collect disibality payments because they are deemed ALCOHOLICS, DRUG USERS, AND GENERAL DEADBEATS who are NOT ELDERLY!
