Hi Robert, I found your South Bronx photos very interesant and showing the dark side of modern American metropolitan areas.

Althought it is copyrighted, I uploaded this picture in my blog mano de mandioca.

Please have a look on it, and if you do not agree to have your photo there, let me know about it.

May be you also want to see some of my own photos on Buenos Aires urban poor quartiers. For instance, the Bajo Flores neighborhood.

Hi, Robert.

Your Bronx pictures are very very impressive. It's very difficult to realize that people lived there everyday ...

Hopefully this changed in better.

And in the 70's and 80's the South Bronx was the hell !probably the worst slum in USA...

I was there in 1994, and it remained as a very bad slum! There were various places where poor people ate free. Like in a Third World urban poor place!

I went to Harvard to give a lecture, and a friend invited me to spend a week in NYC. Then, I visited many interesting places ... like the Bronx

Buen día: Me encuentro trabajando en un texto para el área de Sociales dirigido a estudiantes de educación básica, uno de los temas hace referencia a los aspectos del Bronx, y quisiera poder ambientarlos, para ello me es de gran utilidad la foto que ustedes publican en esta página. Quisiera poder contar con su permiso para poder utilizarla. En caso afirmativo, le estaré inmensamente agradecida, y favor envir datos para los créditos.

Favor enviar pronta respuesta

I'm currently writing a book on Hip Hop and this picture encompasses the severity of the poverty in that time. What would I need to do to obtain use of this photo? Please contact me asap hustlafamilyproductionz@yahoo.com

Shocking shot, but in the meantime Bronx is improving, if I am not mistaken by many photos and views from Google Earth.
