The Dieing Shame of Bushwick!!

author: J.P. : Brooklyn, NY

image It is so sad,and dam shameful that the neighborhood that I grew up in has become.Only thing is that the two sides of the problems with the Bushwick/Ridgewood,neighborhood is the lack of respect for the community, the Pct police officers who turned their backs on the community,because the political parties in the first place didn't even have the cojones to get involved.And the other side of the second problem is how all the Churches,Catholic,Baptist,Methodist main ones of the community.They closed their doors to the people who need to know that they are not going to be the first to...

The Citynoise Situation

author: The Citynoise Editor Ninja : The Citynoise Dojo

They fit the dreams created in the movies we loved....

A Sad Loss to the City...

author: Franny Wentzel : Schenectady, NY

imageA sad loss to the city was the destruction of a pair of apartment buildings downtown as seen in this Polaroid of the buildings I'd taken many moons ago... Emporis's image of the pair On the 6th of March one of the residents - a smoker - found his recliner had caught fire. He tried to drag it into the hall but it got stuck in the doorway. He managed to alert his neighbours but was killed in the blaze along with three others. The two buildings - nearly a century old - were a total loss. Demolition has commenced - incredibly, a resident's...
