    thats from wen landlords were burning down buildings in the south bronx to collect insurance money... the first pic is when president ford visited the south bronx and called it a war zone...

    a movie you should check out is The Bronx Is Burning.. The story is about the New York Yankees back in the 70s but the reason they called it that is because during games back then, you always used to see smoke coming from buildings from landlords who were burining out their buildings... One time the sports caster, Phil Rissoto i think it was commented during a game "The Bronx is Burning" after seeing a fire in the background

    Also check out Fort Apache.. It was about this police precint in the South bronx. The neighborhood got so bad that the parents was making their kids play in from the police precinct instead of their own block because they felt no crime would happen in front the police

    NYC was so broke back in the 70s.

    They asked the Feds to bail them out and this was their response

    I was at my desk going through zipcode map of the bronx, and couldn't help but wonder how much the Bronx has changed. The 70s was before my time but I've read many articles and heard firsthand stories of how bad things were back then.

    But for all the change that occured, Bx still gets a bad rap. When I tell outsiders, even people from Bk or Long Island, that I'm from the Bronx I still get that look. Or the "oh, I hear its bad over there" WTF? it's not Afghanistan.

    Little do they know that the Bronx is NYC's most suburban borough. Yes, there are some parts of the South Bronx you won't see me walking day or night. But where I live in the north, its very quiet. I've left my car unlocked, a window down multiple times. At my father's house door was never locked. Theres no sirens or sketchy people roaming the streets.

    So when I hear people talk about the Bronx like its this crime riddled ghetto I just gotta laugh. Little do they know there are communities here with houses valued easily over 1.5m
