@sycamore
The woodside houses is the ghetto for a reason. Low income, uneducated and ignorant folks from broken single parent households create the violence. It has nothing to do with race.

Sunnyside is full of drunken racists and bigots, oh and hypocrites, full of hatred who like to puff up their chest and start objectify the good people of the internet with their ignorance! Woodside housing projects is hardly considered a “project”in my opinion. My point being is that its not that bad compared to other projects, or sunnyside for that matter, but people want to act like they’re better than everyone else just because they live in a house with wonderful gardens behind them and with their noses high up in the air and heads up their ass so they can savor the smell of their farts LOL

I’ve lived here all my life and this is the first time I’ve heard of a murder in the Woodside Houses. This website has listed more murders in Sunnyside than the WH.

The Sunnyside Post seems to have more than its share of racists among its readers.

“Affordable Housing” pretty touchy subject, I am surprised nobody chimed in with a suggestion of moving them to the moon.

If one was carrying a gun and another is carrying a knife, they both are probably up to no good. City housing … what else is new.
