Guy it’s not my wife I’m worried about she could take care of herself it’s my girlfriend I’m worried about.

Pretty scary area, wouldn’t want my wife walking around there at night – actually not during the day either. Too many people hanging out.

Just stay poor and have someone pay your bills and your neighborhood will eventually be improved by people paying for over priced condos and rentals across the street. Taking selfies and thinking they made in nyc.

Wtf You obviously have never stepped foot in a NYCHA building or a NYCHA apartment. Turn off Fox News and get some real world experience. You sound like a naive fool.

So the stairwells aren’t full of urine and graffiti? And the occasional shootings there are normal. Obviously you must have been raised there to think that’s normal. Or am I being naive?

– anonymous The person posting under Johnny is telling WTF just the opposite it’s WTF saying Astoria Houses tenants will never want to ‘better themselves” and move. I think Johnny’s post is inferring the projects are below standard living. You need to take a remedial reading class. Boy you got that one wrong. LOL

-Wtf We see you’re another graduate of the Fox School of Economics. If only Fox gave some courses in Etiquette and self respect to its followers and graduates. At least then you would have enough sense to keep your silly opinions to yourself and not let everyone know just how uninformed and ignorant you people are.

Wtf-Rule number one nothing is ever “over priced” in a free market economy, it’s just at the price someone is willing to pay for it. It’s over priced because you can’t afford it.You sound a bit jealous.

No incentive to move out when your options will be 70-90 percent of your monthly income going to rent, food and bills. Might as well stay poor at Astoria Houses and live next to luxury apartments and a trendy neighborhood

The way they are changing this area for the better no one at Astoria Houses will want to better themselves and move from the neighborhood.
